... Hi dianag, I wear a 100mcg fentanyl patch & this situation sounds like a nightmare to me. Im so sorry that this happened! What pain do you have that you had fentanyl patch for? I have read/heard that the withdrawal can be very cruel with fentanyl & that benzodiazapene is particularly needed or it is highly recommended to be helpful. Are you being watched under a drs care?... (16 replies)
... tortoise girl, karlee- Glad you are both doing well. Kate, glad your methadone is being re-introduced, perhaps you will do well on a lower dose, only time will tell. How much oxy are you allowed for bt? Karlee, a 3 hour wait??? So ridiculous. My PM is so apologetic, if I wait 45 min over my appt. Sitting is my enemy, a huge pain trigger. There is just no way I...

... hi kate- I found an interesting article by a Karen Miotto, MD-discussing patients being treated for severe pain with buprenorphine. Has your sub doc discussed the possibility of the bup patch as an option? Just the thought of having a constant severe headache alarms me. My cp issues involve my neck, shoulders, low back and legs-and is quite debilitating-... (56 replies)
... Hi Patrick and welcome to the board...I first want to second what tortoisegirl said...all good advice and it's true that there's no "one" good med. We all react a little differently to these pain meds. I want to express my empathy for all the pain you are in and all the problems you are having with your back and neck. I have fibromyalgia and 2 kinds of arthritis, so even... (7 replies)
... Welcome! So what is the reason for tapering you off the patches and not just switching straight over to a different medication? Did you try Tegaderm type covers? I too had a very tough time with the patch aspect of the patches, and believed that do to the sweating under the patch (with the covers on to keep the patches stuck), I was probably not getting anywhere near the...

... this is so true, stress is big part of the pain process, i been trying not to stress, well i knew the pain side was too good to be true, the pain hit me like a tonne of bricks today, can hardly more. dr bumped the lyrica up to 300mg at night, not sure i understand that, but what do i know im only the patient. So far today the body twitches have calmed down, but touch wood, as... (16 replies)

... That is so wrong, you should have been tapered off that amount. I have gone 5 days without a patch(because of insurance mess up) but I had other fentanyl to take so I never went into complete withdrawl. Things are tightening up and it's getting so difficult to be a pain patient. What these idiots don't understand is all this stress adds to our pain. I hope you can find an... (16 replies)

... Dear dianag, How many days with no fentanyl? What have you seen where codeine caused more pain? Backhurtz gives good info, are you doing those things like hot baths & showers for chills?
