  • A narcotic pain med that has very mild side effects and high efficacy for pain control. It allows for better cognitive function while reducing high chronic pain.
    Taken for: Chronic pain
    Duration taken: Two years or more
  • No adverse side effects. Used in conjunction with alternating Percocet and dilaudid for pain management after thoracotomy with resection removal of R mid lobe of lung due to squamous cell carcinoma. Used one week to help with pain management. The combination of meds worked very well.

  • The 25mcg didn't provide relief but the 50 mcg works very effectively. Unfortunately my doctor says the DEA will not allow him to continue giving me the 50 because I don't have cancer. I am in so much pain each day that I am in bed more than 20 hours a day since back down to the 25 as of March 2016. My pain worsens each month.

  • Had 3 day patches worked well for 18 months then suddenly stopped working, I found it best to change patches just before you go to bed

  • The patch is superb for background pain, for breakthrough before finally being prescribed fentanyl nasal spray i tried acetaminophen/dihydro-codeine then oxycontin, both were effective but caused more side effects.

  • Make sure if you're on the patch to get tagaderm patches to hold them on or they won't stick well or for very long. Most manufacturers of the patch will send these to you at no additional cost. Be sure to dispose of them properly.

  • Fentanyl is a very, very addictive drug. I started out on a single 12Mcg Patch but after several years of being on it, I have jumped to a huge 125Mcg of Fentanyl. A VERY powerful painkiller, one of the best out there. PLEASE BE CAREFUL.

  • I cried the first time I woke up pain free. It comes with a price though, it's highly addictive and sometimes it's a pain to get a pharmacist to fill the rx.

  • Invest in some tegaderm film patches will not stick otherwise.
