... now for 10 days and am still in quite a bit of pain. I dropped on the Fentanyl patch from 125 mcg to 50 mcg, with Oxycodone 30 mg and Atiq 400 mcg 3 x a day, but couldn't stand the pain in order to drop down further. I went on Methadone for long term chronic pain, but am very upset that I've lost my mind being clear. I thought when you were on Methadone your mind was supposed to be clear and not sedated? Am I wrong? I hate this dragged down feeling!
