... I realised tonite that there may be a problem with Janssen and the Bioclusive patches. When I called Janssen to get the Bioclusive patches I made it clear that the Dr was giving me 100mcg patches. ... (3 replies)
... Just got from the Rx and they only had 3 of 10 prescribed Duragesic Patches by Janssen. The Pharmacist asked me if I wanted generics and I said no and explained that I had read some bad stories of them here. ... (3 replies)
... I found the matrix patches far better, but we are all different. ... (3 replies)

... that they both are porous and breath, and I have used them very successfully with the PAR gel reservoir patches for years. My usually helpful KMart pharmacy switched me to the newer silicon matrix patch. They say use a Bioclusive. Those are not available locally. ... (3 replies)
... I have been using Tegaderm patch covers with PAR gel Fentanyl patches for several years with excellent results. ... (3 replies)
... The reason for the occlusive or bioclusive patches is so that a large amount of moisture does not build up underneath and cause problems either with the fentanyl patch not working right or rash starting. ... (64 replies)
... The Optisite Flexifix is nearly the exact same material as the Tegaderms but it comes on a roll that lasts 4-5 months for $35. I was spending that every month or two with the Tegaderm covers. brian p.s. One other thing to mention if you use the name brand Duragesic they used to send you out the Johnson & Johnson Bioclusive covers for FREE if you contact the customer... (64 replies)
... I have been on the patch for seven years and at first I had the same problem. When you first put the patch on make sure you keep your flat hand on the patch for at least 30 seconds. It's the body heat from your hand that activates the glue. If you still have problems with it sticking, you can get a cover called bioclusive. I think there is also another one called tegaderm. ...

... Just thought I would reply with a couple of things to remember and things that I have learned about the patch. I have tried many things to place over it to make sure that it sticks including: 1. Nextcare brand Tegaderm covers (can be purchased at CVS (they even have their own brand) or most drug stores) - they are costly $6-$8 for 8 of them but work well 2. Medical tape... (6 replies)

... I use the Tegaderm dressing covers. They are normally like $7.49 for an 8 count box. However, my last trip to CVS I was looking and CVS has their own brand of Tegaderm patches. They are $6 for an 8 count box so that is around .75 cents a piece which isn't too bad. I figure spending $1.50 a week on covers is affordable. I also saw the Tegaderm dressing covers at Walrgreen...

... I am on Sandoz brand duragesic patches. I have tried calling the company to get the dressings, but they do not do it. Should I try to get my pharmacy to get another brand or should I get my doctor to order name brand only? I know I can't afford the dressingsa, at $100 a box, so I am at a loss. Can someone give me some advice????? Thanks and pain free wishes!! (3 replies)
... Hello cpapp31! I definatly know what you are talking about since i live in HOTlanta. My PM suggested that I use Flonase to keep the patch from coming off and causing skin irritation. I thought it sounded strange but it really does work! I spray it over the patch that is covered by a Transederm patch (3M) and lighty pat it on. I have had no problem at all! I am on the Mylan...

... I am prescribed the Duragesic Patches for pain. I have been having a hard time keeping them on lately. I live in Florida and between the heat and the humidity the patches are NOT sticking to my skin. ... (7 replies)
... Duragesic, you are supposed to only clean the area with water directly before the patch is applied so the skin does not become irritated, and they won't send you bioclusive patches until you tell them you're doing it how they say you're supposed to. ... (4 replies)
... bad mistake...Mylan patches are horrible. ... (13 replies)
... Bil, I can guarantee that both the Jannsen and the Sandoz are EXACTLY the same, accept for price, and the fact that Jannsen will not send you free bioclusive dressings if you are using the generic brand Sandoz.
