Also tried a generic;mylan ; which was better but causes my skin to get red and itchy; dont adhere well. just wondering if there are any brands that still have the gel pouch design like the old brand duragesic.
I believe that SANDOZ makes the same type that Duragesic did. You'll have to do some research to see the other manufactures that make the Fentanyl patch. I'm sure they're out there somewhere. Here are a few manufactures:
ACTAVIS SOUTH A
Hope this Helps. Good Luck!
P.S. can you tell me a little bit about the patch? I think I'm going to start using it when I see my doctor on the 7th of next month. I will add you as a friend and send you a private e-mail. thanks!
I am not sure about this particular patch, but I used a morphine patch twice for about 15-20 minutes about 3.5 years ago and had such an awlful reaction I had to remove them before I could tell if I got any pain relief. The itching was so bad it was just crazy! I pray you find pain relief, living with pain every day is unbearable, I know, my life has become an endless circle of trying every pain treatment available and have not yet found the right treatment. Currently on huge doses of steroids and have temporary relief but know I will be right back were I was as soon as these are gone and I am one day from the end of them. Some days it just dosn't seem worth waking up... but I have to, grown children, grandbabies and a husband that depends on my love and wisdom... the wisdom part is quickly running out.

I have been on the patches for a very very long time and i can tell you that the ones I use are indeed filled with gel. I am using Fentanyl Transdermal System 100 mcg/h. Manufactured by Watson Laboratories and distributed by Watson Pharma Inc. The box also has a toll free number at 1-800-272-5525 for questions about Fentannyl transdermal system.
