... :wave: Hi guys. Have any of you guys in the USA or regions where the Duragesic brand patches are being changed from the reservoir delivery system to the flat matrix system noticed if the spelling on the box has also changed to Dur-O-gesic (Durogesic)?

... Yes, many people have to change the patches every 48. Some have even had to change every 24, although that is rare. Everyone's metabolism is different. Additionally, one's activity level has a lot do with it as well. Simply put, the hotter / faster your engine runs, the more quickly you will burn through the med. A person who is fairly active, for example, will have a... (10 replies)

... Weaver, I'll try and clear a few things up for you. First, one thing to remember is that all drugs have a "brand" name and many have several. For instance, Vicodin-Lortab-Norco-Lorcet are all "Hydrocodone." Usually the only difference is the amount of Tylenol that is added. Percocet-Percodan-Tyloz-OxyIR-Roxicodone-OxyContin are all "Oxycodone". Again tylenol... (4 replies)

I have switched to my abdomen on the side and have got better... (21 replies)
... ere was a bit more in the patch when done. I also realized that it may be some type of filler mixed with the med. It might still seem to be a lot but maybe the strength is lower and just a gel left. ... (21 replies)

... experience. I was prescribed the .75mcg fentanyl.
