I have been using the Fentanyl patches now for a couple of months. And I notice that by the end of the second day, the patch is practically dry/empty. They say it is supposed to last for 3 days ... Mine most definitely do not!!! What would be causing this, ... And what am I supposed to do about the problem?
I'm not sure but the Watson brand is one of the best I have encountered. If it is truly running dry by the end of day 2, ask your doctor for a three day blood plasma report (3 blood collections over three days; days 1,2 and 3 at roughly the same time each day and the same lab) and if you are deficient on day three you can argue you need them every 48 hours.
