I have just goteen the Sandoz brand and have never used this brand. For people who have tried all the diff generic patches...can you tell me which you prefer and why? I have mostly used the watson and Mylan brands. Thanks so much


  • I used to be on Fentanyl patches too and tried most of the generic brands. The Sandoz was okay for me and I didn't notice too much of a difference. I did prefer Watsons because to me they stuck a little better and it held the medication in liquid form. As I recall, the Mylan brand's medication is in the adhesion tape on the sticky side I think. If you have that problem with patches not sticking well, just try medical tape such as Nexcare or another waterproof brand. Feel free to ask me about Fentanyl patches.Take care
