Duragesic-75 (fentanyl) for Pain: I used this for several years with good results. Only problem was I metabolized the medicine too quickly and the third day was more painful. My decidedly low-tech solution was to remove only 2/3 of the backing plastic the first couple days, then remove the last bit for the third day. I take extended release morphine now and it works just as well. It's a toss-up between wearing the giant patch and dosage issues verses remembering to take a pill every 8 hours.

Duragesic-75 (fentanyl) for Pain: If this medicine works it's great, however a good amount of the time the patch was as full when it was time to change it as it was when I put it on. Then the side effects they list don't even come close to everything you go through. However ER Staff have stated that most patients taking this drug usually go back on it as the withdrawals are hard to handle.

Duragesic-75 (fentanyl) for Pain: I have been on Duragesic 75mg for about 5 months now and it has helped more than all the other pain killers I have been on. I have had three major back surgery's plus DDD and osteoporosis. The only thing is make sure you have water proof tape around because they sometimes become loose and fall off and you don't want that.

Duragesic-75 (fentanyl) for Pain: This drug caused me major fatigue. It seemed stronger the first two days and faded on the third. The adhesive is terrible to get off.
