I've asked my pain mgmt Dr why it is important to change the location of my fentanyl patch every application but he couldn't come up with an answer. I have changed the location every new patch but I'm still curious as to why they say it's important to do so. Can anyone please explain why they say this? I've tried looking it up but have come up with nothing. I'm currently on 50mcg Q72h along with oxymorphones 10mg Q8h. I've been slowly trying to wean myself off every month as I have children and am also a full time student and hate the fact I've been on narcotics for 5+ years after breaking my back in the Navy, but no-one has been able to give me a solid-legit reason as to why patch placement is imperative. Any answer or thought that makes sense would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
