What is the difference. Can I cut these types in half. I have only read here about this ?gel stuff?
I was told that this type of Fentanyl patch delivers better and more evenly in your system than the gel type. I have been on the patch for 2 years now. Why would you what to cut the patch in half? It says on my directions, do not cut in half. Did a doctor tell you to do this? Cherie
UR's r the newer ones that use the 'matrix' system of delivery. I went into withdrawl sysndrome with those. I couldn't get them out of the packaging w/o them rolling into a ball as i have nerve damage in my right arm.Didn't stick as well. They were designed to keep people from abusing the gel ones. I wouldn't cut them up U won't be getting the amount of med-can go into withdrawl syndrome.
