Pain patch Log
The fentanyl pain patch (a Prescribed medicine) has
become an effective way to control chronic pain. It's
transdermal, providing slow continuous drug delivery
through the skin into the blood stream. The perfect
solution for people living with fibromyalgia, back pain or
arthritis pain, who require continuous pain medication.
It usually takes 12 to 18 hours for fentanyls full potency
to be released into the blood stream. It's then that the
true effectiveness of the medication patch can be felt,
and patients begin to feel true pain relief. The pain patch
lasts for up to three days.
Proper use of the fentanyl patch is important. It is for
topical use only. Improper use may cause overdose,
respiratory distress, or death. It is very easy for the
elderly or those experiencing extreme pain to forget to
pull off the old patch.
Always remember to remove the old patch before
applying a new one!
Our Pain patch log allows you to log the date the patch
was placed and the location.
It's also a nice reminder when it's time to change it. It
also reminds you to remove the old patch.
Dispose of old patch properly to avoid misuse, or
Notify your physician if you have the following
symptoms: vomiting, low blood pressure, difficulty
breathing, or change in mental status.
