Fentanyl Patch Disposal
Final ThoughtsIf you use fentanyl patches, it is very important that you are aware of the correct way to store and dispose of your medication. Like all narcotics, fentanyl patches have a high potential for abuse, and may be sought out by individuals who are addicted to them. In addition, fentanyl is a very strong pain medication, with serious side effects that can harm individuals for whom the medication is not prescribed.
Ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist if you have any questions about the proper storage or disposal of the fentanyl patch.
