I made a terrible mistake (being an addict). About 2 months ago I started licking used 50 mcg Fentanyl Patches that were worn by my significant other for 2 days at a time. I want desperately to get off them. Has anyone had this experience and could they give me advice as how to wean off them. I don't dare tell anyone or my marriage will be over. Bipolar

After only 2 months and the amount of fentanyl your actually doing you should be able to cold turkey this.Give it a try,you may feel kinda lousy for 3-4 days but then you will start to feel much better.If you can do it this way then you should be able to be it.By the way, your playing with fire doing this,you could in theory get a lethal dose.Remember that fentanyl is the strongest opiates group there is,be very careful as many people have died doing what your doing.Good luck...

I am on day 3 of withdrawal from licking used 50 mcg Fentanyl Patches now. I feel awful, very depressed and am not interested in anything. I crave the Morphine all the time. Being bipolar doesn't help. I just keep getting more down. Does anyone know if the cravings and depression will start to get better soon?

I used to personally cut open and suck the drug out of the patch. 100 mcg fentanyl patches. Very dumb and dangerous. These are very hard to kick because they don't produce the quick, intense high of say oxycodone. But they stay with you for awhile and you essentially go about your day with a sense of well-being. So it takes a little longer to detox from these and the psycho withdrawls are fairly bad, because of the depression. It sounds like you had grown accustomed to functioning during the days on these. It'll take awhile before your body starts producing its own "feel-good" endorphins. Fight through this... go on Suboxone if it's too painful. You'll eventually get better and start flying high on the mythical pink cloud. Best of luck.
Quick appalling fentanyl patch story. A friend of mine worked at a morgue and his work partner was addicted to morphine. He'd actually take the old patches off the dead people they worked with. Now THAT'S deplorable.

Yes Fentanyl is the strongest, it's 50-100 times stronger the morphine, there is a drug called Carfentanyl that is 100,000 stronger then morphine but it is only used for sedating large animals.
I guess you were trying to commit suicide, ingesting 6 patches, you need help mister.
