The inner side of your arm has really good absorption compared to other areas of the body. No hair and very thin skin. There used to be a chart around here that compared absorption rates for different parts of the body, can't seem to find it.
He probably means the side that touches your body when your arms are at your sides. Never tried it but it makes sense
Will try that, any other way to abuse the patch?
Fentanyl Transedermal System.
Been a lurker for a while and decided to join. I've worked in the pharma industry for over 15 years now working on the development of new medications (designing and running clinical trials, interpreting results, etc). I work for a company that manufacturers a popular opiate (not Purdue! lol).
The area of the body (on a male subject) that has the highest rate of absorption is the scrotum. It's about 30-40 times higher than other areas of the body. Obviously with the contractility of the tissue, you may run into issues with patches adhering but in general, topicals and patches are absorbed fastest there.
If there are any questions of a pharmaceutical nature, I'll try to chime in with my two cents (FWIW). As many of you suffer, I have had chronic DVTs for the past year secondary to a leg break and also had ischemic colitis due to a clot breaking free and blocking part of the blood supply to the colon. I've basically been on pain meds for the past year pretty consistently since my issue has become chronic with permanent damage to the main veins in the lower thigh and entire calf.
Best of luck...
I always used to put mine on the right side of my chest, that seemed to work really well. I found it was best to rotate the areas when I would change patches. Arm and upper back. I wouldn't put it on your scrotum though... that just seems painful.
I put mine over my heart, first i take a hot shower and clean the area well with a shower towel, then i get out and dry the are and wipe it down with a small towel with alcohol to remove any dead skin I missed. Then let the area dry for a few mins then place the patch over my heart. I even use a heating pad, but i have a high opiate tolerance.
This works golden for me

DO NOT STICK FENT PATCHES UNDER YOUR TONGUE.
And I'm not sure the scrotum, and 30 - 40 x better absorption, is such great advice, either, given the potency and dangers of fent. Upper inner arm works fine. You can't really do much but use the mylan patches as intended without taking risks that aren't worth it for an opiate buzz - and when someone's new to fent and may, for all his post says, be completely opiate-naive, 'stick it under your tongue' is really dangerous advice. The mylan patches are really only good for pain control and to prevent w/ds - and for killing people when abused.
If you need to ask questions about fent patches, you probably shouldn't abuse them: there are much safer opiates out there, like virtually any opiate you can think of.
SLAP IT ON YER NECK
Just kidding. In my experience it always worked fine slapping it on your lower back like you're supposed to. I guess if it is more effective you could put it on your arm, but i really don't understand how it could be
