    Default Dry Fentanyl Patch

    Swim is prescribed 100mcg fent patches. She prefers non gel and has trouble with pharmacys answering if there brand is gel or dry. What generic brands are dry? She knows Mylan is but isnt sure of other brands. Can anyone out there help with this.

    mylan is the only non gel brand. the reason they dont know is because they cannot oppen the box and then open a patch to look inside and still sell or give to a customer. i know i wouldnt want that box.

    there is, i hear a new brand out. i dont know the name, in fact i know nothing about it at all, except my insurance said they would no lnger give me mylans because of the cost. i was given the choice to pay the difference and it was only 20 dollars for all 3 boxes. so i did pay the difference.

    i've had 5 different brands of patches, and mylan is the only non-gel i know of. i've never heard one of my pain docs say anything positive about mylan, other than it sticks better.

    to each their own, i guess. actually WANTING non-gel patches, jeez...

    Sandoz patches left in the head that some fuckhead tries to sell you can be very dry. I should've known when it was 1/$20, 2/$40 it was "too good to be true."

    I know that's a very random, non sequiturial comment but when I saw this thread that's what I thought it was going to be about.

    I liked wearing the 'dry' patches, I didn't even know it was there....the ex ( hmm, that's weird to say.. :eyebrow: ) liked the gel to get high.

    I think the problem is Swim's unwillingness to admit to the internet that she is in fact prescribed fent patches at all. One she gets past this, things will begin to improve... things will begin swimming in the right direction, so to speak.

    Rite O. And what adds to the problem is the preference of glue over gel (which is so much better in every way...)
    oh..except the mylans tend to stick a lil better to your ass.

    Mylan and Teva are both "dry" patches. Tevas resemble nicotine patches, from what I hear.

    SWIM pays $25 for 100mcg Sandoz's. Is this an awesome price for them? Swim thinks it is because hydro and oxy are $.50/mg in swim's area.

    How much are the patches from the pharmacy if you don't have insurance?

    There are actually at least 3 brands that I know of in the line of what are called matrix patches (IE non-gel) now: Mylan, Teva and then just recently Sandoval changed to a matrix patch-no more gel patches from them according to my pharm.

    Best of Luck!

    Oooops, yes I meant Sandoz-all the names run together after a while! And yes, this just happened literally in the last 30 days. Some places may have some stock left of the old gel ones, but they have gone to a dry, matrix patch now. So people who are expecting gels for.....whatever the reason, be forewarned!

    Another company bought them out (possibly Mylan?) according to my pharm.....They do stick better than Mylans, I will say that for them. I got them the last time I picked up my scrip. Box looks exactly the same on the outside so there is no way you would know they changed until you opened them......

    And that my fent friends, is my latest fent patch update!

    Also as of 6/1/10 The sandoz and the Duragesic Brand are both dry, or aka matrix patches.
    I may be wrong but as of 6/1/10, only the watson and activas generic patches are the only gel patches.I have heard that the Teva matrix patch is different in both color and texture compaired to the other matrix patches.

    Most brands I know come in 5 in a box whether you get 2, 3, or more boxes. Self labeled also
