  • Fentanyl and a 78 year old

    My husband  has had his patch increased to 25 mg with liquid morphine for breakthrough pain.  Is it usual for this to be perscribed for oesteoarthritus? Does it mean he will have to be on the patch forever? I have asked about a steroid injection but apparently this is not possible. To be...

  • Fentanyl cold-turkey, want to die already

    I feel all of your pain here and wonder what has helped you guys get through all of this? I have very much the same miserable medical diagnosis history as many/most of you and also a cytochrome imbalance which prevents metabolism of most opiates. I've been on 75-100mcg x 24-48 hours for the past...

    I have been taking percocet for several years for a malpractice surgery.  A surgeon really messed me up.  I asked for some kind of more help from my family doctor.  He gave me the fentanyl 50 patch.  I only took it for 1 week and decided it was not for me.  I quit it 4 days ago...

The pain was never really in control, but my Dr was afraid of Percocet, so gave me Fentanyl, without knowing...
