It can take a day or two to get full relief but you should start getting some relief within a few hours. Give it a little time. Did your Dr give you any pills for breakthrough? If he did you may want to take some as directed until you get full relief from the patch. Sometimes full relief doesnt come until you get to the second patch so be patient. I know that is hard when you hurt!

Marley, I have been on the Fentanyl patch for over 5 yrs. The 1st couple of days are your body getting used to it. I felt very little relief w/ 1st patch, but things got better with second and by third I was doing a lot better. Most things take a little time, so little really fast acting meds that wil stick with you like the patch. Hang in there just a little more. You should be feeling better very soon.
