I was wondering if anyone out there can answer a question for me please! I just got my Fentanyl patches refilled 25mcg's and 12mcg's. I have been using these now for about 3-4 mths. BUT this time I had to use a different pharmacy and the 25mcg patches were differently made than I have had in the past. Its like they have the liquid meds in the patch to make it sort of look like a gel pack. The directions didnt say a whole lot so here's where my question comes in. I peeled of the back and stuck the sticky back part to my skin but i was wondering does the front part have to be peeled off too or just the back. one end is shaped sort of pointy and the other end is just a rectangle with rounded edges. the 12mcg patch is the same as i have always had just a little rectangle with all rounded edges and its not got any gel in it. I hope I did a good job in my description. I am hoping I did this right cause i am afraid that if i was supposed to peel something else off and didnt that it would affect the absorbtion ability. I am hoping someone out there will be able to tell me if i did it right or not. i cant remember the company name that makes them but they are both the generic patches for teh brand name of duragesic. thanks in advance for any and all info that anyone out there would care to give me!!!
