hey im new to patches too. buddy recently got prescribed 2.5mg/25mcg/hr fent patches. He gives me the leftovers every three days for free, to help with my H and oxy withdrawls...Theoretically, each leftover should have about .7mg left of fent in it...oh and he gets the ones that have the gel in them too. I have ate only two of them before, and to almost no effect...Both times they helped cure the sickness of w/d, but I did not feel even the SLIGHTEST buzz. I now have a little stockpile of 3 leftovers, and i'm wondering if i'm doing something wrong? Do you actually place the gel directly on your skin? I've tried letting it dissolve on my tongue, under the tongue and swallowing some of it..but i'm not interested in doing it more than a couple more times as i wish to keep my liver, but hell they're free and i'm outta H so i need to get messed up so someone please tell me how to get messed up off these garbage things!!
