It really depends upon the manufacturer of the patch I believe. I was told by a medical professional that cutting a Mylan generic brand Fentanyl patch (100 mcg/hr) in halves/quarters would be fine. I trust her greatly, and took her advice for the larger (100 mcg/h) mylan patches and had no problems. Can you check to see which generic you have? The patches with the gel all in the middle cannot be cut, so you have to be very careful!
