    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    This is my second month of using fentanyl patches and this month I've lost 3 doses which equals 6-days.my ins co told me the earliest I can fill my prescrption is feb 9 or have my doctor write the prescrition a little different then the original prescription and they would cover it sooner, Does this sound correct. I did call Mylan and they sent me Askina Derm covers but it was to late. these patches just don't stick when I have my sweating episodes

    I don't use patches, but I've heard that there are tapes that are made specifically for the purpose of resticking the transdermal patches back to your skin.

    Ask your pharmacist, they should know what you're looking for.

    Good luck!

    Oh, and save the ones that fell off to show your MD that you're not using them too often, otherwise they may not believe your story.
