When I first started using the Fentanyl Patches, I could not keep them on. They would come off before the time the next one was due. Then I called the manufacturer, and he suggested washing the area with a non oily soap. It still didn't work. The edges would come up. Then I found out if you are using the real patches, you can send in your receipt, the front of your box, and they will send you two boxes of covers to cover the patch. It is a big cover, it does the job, but does it hurt when you take it off! But it is not coming off no other way. I mean I was in a store once, and two young kids were looking at my arm, and I believe if I hadn't had the cover on, they would of pulled the patch off and ran. I mean it was hanging on one side. I tried tape and everything. I hope this helps you. angeljaci06View Thread
