    Hi Deb, Well Done now you are off Fentanyl. I am hoping to do that too.

    Was it the patches and /or  Actiq you were on? How did you do it and how long did it take and what were the withdrawal like please?

      Hi Deb,

      How did you come of the patch and what strength were you on. Did you taper down or go C/T. What were the withdrawals like and do you still get them?

Never again,if I can get rid of this horrid drug. How do some people just stop is beyond me. Thanks for listening and all the best to you and your family in the future. Dave.
