... it typically lasts 8 hours, that is really a second long acting med, not a breakthrough med. It would be no different than replacing the Oxycontin with a higher patch dose. ... (5 replies)
... Hi bad back, Before i was started on long acting, timed released narcotics i used to take short acting acute pain meds & had diarrhea tendency although UC in remission & it stopped with beginning meds that kept blood level of narcotics steady, even 24/7 & im rx'd a higher dosage but if i miss a dose or patch falls off or if pain becomes less severe requiring less bt meds...

... ing pain medication, and may reduce the dose increases that are required over time. Plus you'd only have to take a medication 1, 2, or 3 times a day, or apply a patch every 2 or 3 days, vs. a pill 6 times a day. ... (8 replies)

... I was put on the 25 mcg Fentanyl patch with Tylenol 3's for BT. I weaned myself off of Fentanyl for several reasons, one was to see what my actual chronic pain level was. ... (14 replies)
... the med dries up on that part and more of the patch, so it is conceivable to get only half of the med. Plus, once your med levels drop, even if you get a fresh patch stuck on, it takes a long while for them to get back up. ... (9 replies)
... Seems like most people either love or hate the fent. patch. I love it, personally. I use a 25mch generic Watson gel patch that nearly totally eliminates any hills and valleys between med doses... ... (5 replies)
... the first patch failed. My doctor had give Me Norco to cover the first 12 hours. They didn't touch the pain. ... (63 replies)
... Exalgo (Dilaudid) or Methadone? I'd see what your doctor suggests when you say this isn't working for you. Yeah I think we have the same idea...if your doctor is willing to go to a 75 patch, you should be able to go up higher than 60 on the oxycontin. (63 replies)
... MESnap-My 100s are Watson brand and my 50s are Apotex. I don't have any means for comparison as I was only on 25s in addition to my other meds before. Trying to get Sandoz next week, but we'll see. I'm happy to be able to have my script filled on the same day, as it seems like 100s are tough to find? I unfortunately only get 15 doses of bt meds every 4 weeks. Lately... (63 replies)
... When I had the two patches covered in too much flonase, it took 4 days of withdrawal symptoms and an additional 4-6 days of uncontrolled pain before the patches started helping again. I actually need up getting IV meds at the hospital on day 6. My BT meds still do not help at all with the fentanyl. (Except for my super breakthrough med - dilaudid - at a high dose,... (63 replies)
... I'm doing a little better with the patch, after much trial and error. First I just quit using the flonase and dealt with the patch eating my skin alive. I too get welts more on the outside of the patch, and yes, it lifts the edges off of the skin. ... (63 replies)
... The patch was almost more of a nuisance for me as I was anxious about it falling off, so I'd check it was still sticking several times a day. ... (4 replies)
... I hope things stabilize for you and this works out. As you know Pain Management is not about relieving pain, but making it manageable so that we can live our lilves as we endure it. The Fent patches can work very well but there are a lot of variables to consider. If they don't seem to be lasting long enough or working well enough you can go to a 48 hr. dosing as opposed to...

... You might want to try Tegadern patches over the Fentanyl patch from coming off. I've had 7 surgeries on my left shoulder including 2 humeral head replacements from a previous gun shot injury. ... (63 replies)
... ncrease in my pain coupled with a change in their formulary meant I needed a change. The fentanyl has been more helpful, period, but I have some issues with the patch that contribute to an unevenness in how much it helps. ... (63 replies)
... I am new to pain patches. Have been taking methadone 20 mg twice daily and Dilaudid 20 mg total daily for chronic low back and hip pain from three surgeries including one fusion surgery. ... (1 replies)
... Thanks for your detailed response. Interesting on the Fentanyl. As for my Dilaudid, my PM doctor wrote it as take it 3 times a day. So, my case is a little different in that aspect. I'm just thankful that he's found a combo that doesn't have me in horrific pain. Again, thanks for taking the time to write back to me explaining all of this. I've been on the patch before, but...

... he drug levels of Fentanyl in your blood should stay pretty constant, and by the end of the 72 hrs the drug starts to go down and that is when you put on another patch to prevent this from happening and keep the Fentanyl levels in your blood from going down. ... (11 replies)
... however, it's not debilitating pain by the 3rd day... and the Dilaudid seems to keep it under control until I change the patch. I'm going to keep a schedule though, should my pain symptoms change. ... (11 replies)
