    Im so sorry to hear all you and your wife ate going through.

    your wife really needs to be seen by a medical dr,

    I do know if she is not getting a new patch on exactly 72 hrs, she will start to withdrawl.

    When I was on fentanyl, 75-200mg, it was every 48 hrs, because the longer your on these mediciations, the liver processes faster and faster, initially it was every 72 hrs.

    PRAYING and HOPING things improve!
