    Memory loss
    I told my Doctor about my wife's short term memory loss and he said it was due to the 75 Fentanyl patch. He then wrote prescription for 50 Fentanyl patch. Would this be true?? Will the patch create memory loss??

    How do you get the dressing covers from J & J to keep the patch on? Do you get them via the company? I wear a 75mcg patch, which is a lg one, and nothing OTC covers them, so I use surgical adhesive tape. Thanks :) Mon
