Best location to put the Fentanyl patch please?

SWIM (of course) has a script and is on the 25mcg fentanyl patch. SWIM has the Mylan flat patches. SWIM would like to know/get opinions on what part of the body to put it. SWIM has tried all 3 "brands" and all sorts of locations. SWIM is not going to divert this patch, as SWIM has only 2 left including this one, and has chronic pain.
SWIM has tried shoulder, flank (SWIM has love handles and a bit of a belly but is not a hairy guy ), biceps, etc.
But SWIM wants to know where to place it to get maximum absorbtion, maximum bee buzz (though SWIM has never gotten a bee buzz from any of the patches unless eaten), and maximum everything while using the Mylan flat patch correctly.
Now-SWIM knows that Duragesic/Sandoz jelly bags work by creating a resevoir or pool of medication just under the skin, then drawing off of that to put the medication into the blood/body etc. Does SWIY know if it is the same for Mylan? I know the med. in Mylan is from what i hear a powder form that is in the actual adhesive layer that keeps it on a body's skin.
Suggestions would be great, SWIM has to put it on soon
As always great place, god bless and ty all.

sorry do not yet know how to edit posts
has SWIY etc ever tried a Mylan patch on the hand? back of the hand? would it work best right over the heart? etc. SWIM found out yet it does create a resevoir same as jelly packs. SWIM just doesn't know if perhaps a good location (lots of veins etc perhaps?) would make patch work better. 25mcg is very small for SWIMs tolerance level. ty again

There more veins in the area the more effective the patch will work, having the patch on your neck would be very effective but probably quite uncomfortable and it would not stick very well. If your going to be busy around the day and not just sitting around you need somewhere which doesnt move very much. SWIF when he has used Patches prefers to put them on the back of the arm, back of the thigh(shaved area) or on his chest.

If SWIY is looking for a recreational experience however he should remove the Fentanyl from the gel or use an entirely differant opiate alltogether. Im sure if SWIY has access to Fentanyl he must have access to other opiates. If SWIY is using it legitamately for chronic pain then the places i mentioned above are most effective.

Re: Best location to put the Fentanyl patch please?

L sorry to be the bearer of bad news however I've tried every spot imaginable and on my chest over the heart gave me the best results. But this drug doesn't give tolerant users much of a high. You need a different roa to get any kind of high from it.

Used these for many many years and you shouldn't put them on the same place with each change. Better to alternate using two or three different spots of skin.
Also I find none of the brands stick for anywhere near the 72 (or 48 hrs that I get from them) so the best product is a Smith & Nephew product called Flexfix whoch is a waterproof thin plastic coating that I use over each patch and it keeps them from coming loose with sweat or water and doesn't affect the delivery of the patch.

Re: Best location to put the Fentanyl patch please?

To resurrect a dead thread once again, I've been a chronic pain patient for 3 years and have had a HELL of a time finding appropriate places for patches, and getting them to stick. I used to live in the mid-Atlantic area, and at the extremes of temperatures patches had to be moved to accommodate - in the subzero temperatures of January and February, I had to stick them on my torso a few inches under my armpit so that my body heat kept the patch warm enough to work, and had the added benefit of my bra band keeping it down as well. Conversely, on the 99 degree summer days, I keep the patch on the front of my lower abdomen/just inside my hip bone, so that it doesn't overheat being inside my armpit (basically the hottest part of your body) and my underwear/shorts band lays right on it as well.

Up until my recent move (to a state that treats EVERYONE like junkies and mostly refuses to treat pain at all, even in those with a long verifiable history and legit diagnosis....if you live here you know where I am.) I was on 50mcg patches and preferred the Mylan brand - they stuck the best, they did not have the gel inside, and they didn't have that crappy tendency to swing around and stick back onto themselves like some other brands.

The fentanyl makes me sweat a LOT, so adhesion was a huge problem. The best thing I've found is Band Aid Brand Waterproof Tough Strips. These things are a godsend. They look like the largest band aid available, but the difference is that the sticky parts have threads woven in, like duct tape. Those things stick SO WELL! And best of all, they have a typical band aid non-sticky gauze center that lays over the patch, ensuring that the covering isn't messing with the patch at all. They fit the 50mcg patches perfectly. I don't know if larger doses are logistically larger patches (I was decreased to 25 and they are physically smaller, so I guess they might be?) but the Tough Strips are great. They're at Walgreens usually, or Target or any other pharmacy store.

Re: Best location to put the Fentanyl patch please?

I just put a patch on my arm, about an inch from my underarm being its warmer as you mentioned, I'm hoping this works for me being I am late with applying a little over 3 hrs. Of course it'll take time to kick in, mine does not really kick in till about 15 hrs later, kinda weird but everyone's system is different in regard to drugs

Oh, I use the 3M Nexcare waterproof, they have that gauze piece in the middle also, for some reason the bandaid brand would wrinkle up when trying to put it on.

I buy the 3M's on ebay I buy 5 or more boxes, I think the seller's user name is pharmapac
