I agree with Mary it depends on the type of pain you are having, for instance I take Opana Extended release, for pain that is ongoing drugs that are time released along with a drug for breakthrough pain is given. for an accident that I had this past winter the drug Opana ER along with naprosyn was given there are non opiate drugs given for other types of pain its best of you are seen by a pain specialist they are qualified to diagnose and to decide what medication is best, sometimes they work in a group with other doctors so it is like being able to see a neurologist, orthopedist, or whatever the case may be. I used Fentanyl patches several years ago it is used as a patch and is replaced every 72 hours it releases analgesia into your system through the skin it just depends on what and where the pain is and of course the doctor
