  5. How do people abuse fentanyl patches?
Asked: 2018-07-14 10:01:24
While I was interning for hours toward my degree, I shadowed a nurse praticioner who explain to me that one of her patients was abusing fentanyl patches. Consequently, she stopped prescribing this patient the patches and he no long sought out her services. Due to lack of time, I did not ask how the patches are abused. Can someone here explain to me just how people abuse fentanyl patches? Thanks!

multiple patches on their body at a time. The patches are designed to be used individually and should last roughly three days. Using multiple patches gives a high but can lead to an overdose.

Fentanyl patches contain a gel inside. People sometimes place the entire patch in a cup of hot water and steep it the same way you make tea. They then drink the tea to get high. People also chew or suck on the patches and some boil the gel so that it becomes liquified and then inject.
