And what size of it should I be looking for? The 4x4 Tegaderm looks huge but the 2 3/8 x 2 3/4 looks too small. Can the 4x4 be cut smaller? I know the bioclusive or tegaderm needs to completely cover the Fentanyl patch with a little wiggle room left over on all sides. Also where is the best (cheapest) place to buy these things from? Thanks for any help! :)
I think CVS is cheapest brand. I use duct tape it works very well and my doctor told me there is no harm in it as long as your not alergic. Hope this helps. I wish you the best of luck finding what works best for you. I've been in pain management for 26 years and it took forever to figure out the best medicine for me. I have been using the fentynal patch for more than 20 years 100mcg. The nice thing about the ones from CVS is they are smaller and easier to stick on.
