Sorry Darlin, that's not going to work unless it's sealed back up.

Gwen,
Please don't play around with the Fentanyl patches!  I'm 21 days clean from them & I wouldn't wish that heartache on anyone. You don't want to be saving them & then using your fingers to try and use them again. You can get too much Fentanyl in your system at once. I had a patch that fell off (had lots that wouldn't stick) & It rolled up on me (I used the Mylan with no gel inside)& I try to unroll it & it was a new one & it must of hit me with a double dose cause I became very sick!
What kind of help do you want? Do you want to come off of them? If you do, maybe I can share my experience with you.
To Daughter:
I became VERY sick on the patches! Some people can't handle them. I was one of them. Talk to your Dr, OK?
