Hey, I am just started using the Fentanyl Transdermal Patch 50 mcg and I first applied it about 15 hours ago for the first time. I am having terrible nausea and ended up vomitting a couple times. Can anyone tell me if this is normal and what I should do and will this effect go away? Feeling pretty miserable right now and I have a terrible headache. Thanl you so much

Opioids cause nausea. Just one of there side effects. Sometimes it gets better with time sometimes it doesnt. U can try any over the counter nausea meds. If all them fail ask ur doc. The best nausea meds I've ever had was scopolamine patches. Little round patches that go right behind ur ears. They r good for 3 days. They r great especially if ur so nauseas u can't keep pills down long enough for them to work b4 u puke em up. Helps to also keep ur opioids or any other meds down. They don't have many side effects. They can make it hard read. Can cause blurry vision but not bad enough u can't drive or anything. They r very expensive if u don't have insurance. U want to make sure if u do have insurance they are on ur formulary list.
