I say this now, after 3.5 wks being free of 4yrs. of fentanyl patch that my original neck injury pain is a welcomed gift compared to being on Fentanyl. I can think so much more clearly, feel like doing anything BUT sleep all day, I'm cooking with love instead of with resentment, I know I won't be down with withdrawal symptoms every other patch change, or every other week of weaning off of it. I know I still have a way to go, but rebuilding my life would only have been possible for me by getting completely off of it. I'm going to try to steer clear of opiates, and anything else that might make me dependant, just to avoid getting sicker than a dog every day. My kids and other family can see & hear such a change 4 the better in me. It's so good to be back. Pain is definitely the Lesser of the two evils in my opinion. Life just gets better after fentanyl is out of your bloodstream & system. I cannot believe how dark my world had become. For anyone afraid to wean off, please know you will eventually feel better. There are SO many other medicines for pain that can suit you and do the job without hurting so much. All the best everyone.
