... But I have read they are almost as highly used and expensive on the streets as the actiq pops, which can also kill people not used to a daily opiate. ... (16 replies)

... If its at status, that is, never going to get any better, then I would say you could try going up on the patch before trying the actiq pops. Usually increased pain is the fault of the long acting med, not the short acting, and 25 mgs is one of the lowest avalible on the patch. ... (30 replies)

... Hey Kim, Fenntanyl and suffentnyl can be dellivered through an IT pump, other than that, you would have to use Aqtiq pops around the clock to get fentanyl any other way, and when used orally it would probably be just as constipating as any other opiate. ... (5 replies)

... I can't put them in absolute order, but I can give you feedback on a few of them.... Fentanyl pops (Actiq) is probably the most expensive- Around $500 a box (of 30). Opana is also very expensive...More so than the rest because it's engineered to target the receptors that don't cause excitement. Ms Contin is probably the cheapest...Comes in generic and is very cost... (20 replies)
