Dont get on this side much anymore as my husband lost his battle in April of this yr but wanted to let you know...he was put on a fent patch and it seemed to work well for him for the first few months. As he lost weight things changed and one afternoon he went to take a nap and I could not wake him..The emergency room Dr told us that any heat or extra covering (blankets etc) can cause the medicine in the patch to release very quickly and if there is no fat the patch cannot work. He did recover but spent 4 days in withdrawal completely out of his head...never used the patches again....just info to consider. God bless all of you
