  • Mayne Pharma changing NDC codes for Par

    Just found out that Mayne Pharma is changing NDC codes for their Par Brand patches. 1st to change is the 50 mcg patch. This causes pharmacists one helluva time finding and ordering the patch. New NDC code helps tremendously.  New code is NDC51862-315-78

  • Fentanyl Withdrawal, it's cruel and you will need support

    After 18 years on fentanyl I went off cold turkey which is not recommended.  This is the most inhumane experience I have ever had and anyone going through this will need support.  My experience..the time frame, the drugs, the side effects and what I did that worked.  I would like others...

    I recently opted to stop using my Fentanyl patches. I went from a 25 to a 12, then completely stopped. That was three days ago and my blood pressure is continually high. Will this get better?

  • Fentanyl effects

    I just chewed a 50mcg fentanyl patch for 30 minutes and I'm also wearing 1 50mcg fentanyl patch but I'm not feeling any effects. I thought this was supposed to be a powerful drug! Shouldn't I be sleepy or something. I was hoping to catch a buzz of some sort.

  • Fentanyl cold-turkey, want to die already

  • My hell journey on Fentanyl is over!

    Just wanted to share my experience with Fentanyl and give hope. I was prescribed a 15mg, every 72 hour patch for Lupus pain, which steadily was increased to 150 mg, every 48 hours in 5 months. The pain was never really in control, but my Dr was afraid of Percocet, so gave me Fentanyl, without knowing...
