Good afternoon Tina!
I have really been struggling with this Fentanyl patch, but think I have it figured out. The matrix type was not working, and the gel type really needs a good clean area, free of body oils, and placed as tightly as possible for full contact to the skin. Finally, I'm getting some relief here, but do still think a dose increase is needed as suggested on one of my post.
No big plans for the week other than to get as much comfort as I can get with these patches.
Have a great week!
