Fentanyl may make you dizzy or drowsy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do any activity that requires alertness until you are sure you can perform such activities safely. Avoid alcoholic beverages.
However for more details you could read the medication guide or talk to the doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med., take care, be well & safe!
All the research that I've done says that it certainly can interfere with things such as driving. I have just started using the patch (25) and so far I have only noticed that I am a little more tired in the evenings and I do sleep much better (though I think it's because I'm in less pain). As far as "getting high", I have not had that feeling. But I have been taking Percocets for quite a while which may be the reason.
