    Depends a lot on the strength of the Fentenyl patch. They come in 25, 50, 75, and 100 mcg. Also, the dose of Hydrocodone being taken. Best bet is to ask your doctor or pharmacist.

    On occasion your doctor may be able to give you something for "break through" pain so as others have said, ask your doctor what would be appropriate for your condition.

    A "Thank You" goes a long way.....

    Hi Donna. Hydroxyzine is an antihistamine that has been known to increase the effects of opioid analgesics and reduce itching, Lortab is Hydrocodone 7.5 mg and APAP or Acetamenophen (same thing) Probably at least 500 mg. The two taken together should work well as it is one of the best potentiators of Hydro. Be careful not to take more than 4000 mg's of APAP in 24HRs as it will destroy your liver and probably kill you. Have a nice day!
