... expensive pain medication for chronic back pain. I hope this is clearing up my frustrations, questions, and concerns somewhat. If not, it's because of the dumb Fentenyl Patch making me feel "drugged up" JK. Lol. Ok. The first visit I had with him, he prescribed Oxycontin. I bought 10 and they helped greatly. ... (6 replies)

... So are you feeling over medicated (not having much pain and feeling drugged) or is it that you have a lot of pain still but the drugged feeling is a side effect? How much oxycodone are you taking? Taking 15mg of oxycodone four times a day would be 60mg, which is actually a lot compared to the would be about equal to another 25mcg + patch, so more than your long... (6 replies)
... If you aren't already, try using covers on them, like Tegaderm. If the patch isn't sticking, you also aren't getting the full med amount. ... (6 replies)
... I know how you feel my dr just changed me to exalgo. Which is not helping me and it cost $639.00 when I picked it up at the pharmacy. This is for one month supply. I have been doing a lot of research on the most effective and the medicines that are least expensive. Try typing in a list of extended release medication for pain and the cost comparison of each. I did this earlier... (6 replies)
... ocaine patches are topical and there is no anti inflammatory in it. You put them on the painful area for 12 hours a day, then take them off.....Butrans is also a patch that is available for treating pain, but again, the pain management doctor is the best person to be discussing your treatment options with. ...

... I was just hoping to find something topical that is not an nsaid. This is the only patch ive heard of. The pain is terrible, i just got tired of all the vicodin side effects. ... (5 replies)
... especially by phone. Sorry you are suffering, but I do not recommend that course of action. Plus, it would be dangerous for a doc to put you on even the lowest patch dose as you don't have enough opiate tolerance. ... (5 replies)

... Hi, I know the frustrations trying to keep the patches on sometimes. Especially in the summer when you sweat more and may be in the pool or the ocean. As far as keeping them on, as others have suggested be sure to have the sight clean prior to putting it on, no lotion or anything in the area. The tegaderms really do help but as someone else said, if not adhered properly you... (6 replies)
... You probably know this but, it does help to clean the area with alcohol before applying. Also I hate the brand I get at Walgreens but the ones I get at Kroger work much better. I do have a scrip to change them every 48 hours cause they would not work for three days. I am getting ready to get off of them tho cause I hate having no control on what my body is getting. For some... (6 replies)

... Hello. Yes I sure have had good results with Tramadol. But, right now I'm not. I have really only had successful results with it when my pain was more mild to moderate. Right now it's not and I'm on the Fentenyl patch with oxycodone for break-thru pain. The two of them work good together. For you, I would say that it's depending on if your pain is more moderate or... (3 replies)
... In your situation, no fentanyl is not even close to being a reasonable request for treating your pain. In fact, given that you decided to stop taking the vicoden, you would be starting over at the beginning for treating pain- there are other anti inflammatories that may be a better option for you, as well as several of the nerve pain medications might be a better option for...
