Hi SD16,

You asked about peaks and valleys with Duragesic. It is one of the only things I HAVEN'T tried...but I have read a lot about it.

Many report that it gives even coverage on days 1 and 2, but not day 3. Many doctors will therefore prescribe it to be changed every 48 hours, instead of 72 hours.

Also, the formulation of the patch can make a difference. There is, of course, the brand name Duragesic. Then there are 2 generics...Sandoz and Mylan. The Sandoz is said to be equivalant to the brand -- I think they are made by the same company. And the Mylan have a different delivery mechanism.

Which type people prefer is a matter of personal preference. Some report success with the Duragesic/Sandoz and others with the Mylan.

Check out the thread on Fentanyl Patch Tips for more info:
