  • 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.

  • This product gives you the ability to not have the ups and downs of taking oral products.

  • I used 25s for pain control after having back surgery. I had a terrible time keeping it on my skin. 3 days was too long for it to stay sticky enough plus the package material says not to use any kind of tape to keep it on. It said to use tegederm to keep it on and what I was told those are expensive. The whole time I had to use the dilaudid for break through pain. I felt like the patches just did not work for the trouble it caused while in pain.

  • 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.
