My doc prescribed the 50 mcg/hr Mylan Fentanyl patch and it is feeling a bit strong. It's making me nauseated and sleepy.
I called his Nurse and she let me know that they usually recommend that you can cut them in half to reduce the dosage but she'd run it by my Doctor to make sure. This morning she called to let me know it'd be fine to cut them in half.
I still feel weird about doing that though, it seems like everyone always says NEVER cut a Fentanyl Patch in half or youll die instantly. So, I called the manufacturer and spoke with one of their Pharmacists and she told me that they did not recommend it. Do any of you have any experience doing this? Thank you!
