Fentynal (duragesic) patch is in fact pushing opiates into your system through you skin. I have personal knowledge that this transdermal entry does not affect me as an intravenous shot because its a hot shot not delivered over several hours and virtually non-invasive. Make sure you have an epipen in case you have a reaction. Opiates are not all created equal and neither are patches.
