This is certainly an interesting change on the part of Duragesic brand, especially considering so many people complain about the Mylan generic delivery system.


1. Does the new design patch work in the same way, and is there any difference in how it delivers fentanyl?
Yes, it works the same way. The new design, in which fentanyl is contained in the adhesive layer of the patch delivers fentanyl transdermally (through the skin) with the same pain relief as the older design which contained the fentanyl in a reservoir.
2. Is the new design patch better or safer?
Both the new design and the old design are safe and effective when used in a manner that is consistent with the product labeling. The new design is thinner and may be considered aesthetically more elegant than the old design.
3. How is the new design patch different than the old design patch?
The new design is thinner and may be considered aesthetically more elegant compared to the old design. As an added safety feature all 5 strengths come in child-resistant packaging.
4. Will the new design patch eliminate leaks?
We always strive to produce high quality products. Because there is no reservoir in the new design, it cannot leak.
