Hi nicole, My dr said that the tolerance to opiates is almost a prerequisite for the fentanyl patch & he started the dose at 25 mcg & raised it per month until it was working but i have had bt meds too. Here where i live, different pharmacies carry different brands of generic patches & each one usually only carries one brand of generic. I.e. walgreens has watson, cvs has... (3 replies)

... I used both brands for 2years. There was not any difference other than Mylan sent me free covers and Watson sometimes came loose. But we are different on how it affects us. ... (6 replies)
... For myself, being in PM for 11 years and having taken every single opiate from Vicodin to Fentanyl patches and all in between...I have never found a difference in my generic meds or felt they work any less. ... (6 replies)
... What I meant about Watson having different ingredients is that it has silicone and alcohol in it and the Mylan brand did not have those ingredients in the patch. ... (6 replies)
... So, some folks will be over or under dosed when switching. Some are more sensitive to these small changes. Another possibility is that because the Watson are so large, it is not sticking correctly...if even one little part is unstuck, the air that gets under it will dry out the med at more than that little spot. ...

... My pharmacist and doctor agreed these are the best way to insure they stay on. I also use Watson gel type generics which seem to be notoriously bad for staying put. Tegaderm is the way to go...just my two cents! Best of luck to you. ... (5 replies)

... Saw your message and just thought I'd share my solution. years ago I was on kadiam , fentanyl. ocycontin many of the local pharmacies did not and would not carry opiates in such large doses. What we were able to do was use a hospital pharmacy. It required my MD to authorize, but it was worth it to know that my meds were always available. (10 replies)
