I am wanting to get off of fentanyl, and need some answers for a replacement. I don't want oxycontin since everyone is having so much trouble with it. Any answers would be very much Appreciated. By the way, I am taking 50 mcg. every 48 hrs.

There are alot of alternatives to this patch. You should probably consult with your Dr. because we do not know what you are suffering from and that is pretty important to determining what med you shuld take. There are many choices but they are all dependent on the situation of your pain. Good Luck

Hi there how long!! Where have you been? I've missed you. I'm sorry to hear you're having problems with the patch controlling your pain. Have you discussed MS Contin, Opana ER, they even make an oxycodone ER that is different from Oxycontin? There's also shorter acting meds like dilaudid. If I come across other meds that might help, I'll re-post today. I hope you find relief soon. I know how much pain you are in and wish I could help you more. Be strong.
