Sorry, I found the information needed.
Sherry, it doesn't give the brand name of the Patch. I currently have the 25mcg gel filled patches that I filled at teh Pharmacy this week. How can I find this information?
I can FINALLY put partial weight on my leg and have to use the walker - of course - BUT it sure beats having to hop like I did for 6 weeks just to be able to go to the bathroom OR get to the wheelchair!! :) I'm having to remember to keep my left foot straight as it tends to want to point to the left right now. LOL
Your welcome for the additional information. You have to go to the FDA website to be able to find out the lot numbers and you have to type in about the "Fentanyl Patch Recall for October, 2010" in the searsh bar at the top of the site to find the lot numbers.
I'm REALLY glad that you did post it right away because I would have been changing my patches tomorrow.
Thanks again Gemini - I have a feeling that there are some of our members that are using these particular patches. You've done us all a REALLY great service!!! :)
I hope that you are doing well!!.........Sherry
Thank you Sherry, for the additional information. I honestly didn't take the time to really read it much when I received it - wanted to get it posted here as soon as possible, as I know many of our members use the patches. I used to use them, but don't any longer (started having bad reactions to it), but I haven't removed myself from the notification section of the website on them - that's why I still receive these types of notices about them.
How is your recovery going?
Sorry, meant to add that it's the 25 mcg/hour patch that is being recalled NOT any other size.......Sherry
Thanks for the information. I just checked and FORTUNATELY the Mylan Brand ISN'T the one being recalled.
If you will go to the FDA web site you can get all 18 of the lot numbers. I believe the manufacturer is Activis BUT I'm not positive about the spelling so PLEASE go and check.
Thanks again Gemini!!!........Sherry
