... take effect. Taking a 75 mg patch every 48 hrs. I have been taking 8 mg Hydromorphone tablet every three to fours hours for the last four years. Suffered a TBI - Brain bleed two vessels at brain stem broke open from Trauma. Very lucky to be alive but headaches are over the top!!!
It takes approximately 12hrs 2reach its peak. Been on them since 2009 in all mcg's. Currently been on 100mcg for about 5 of those yrs. Also, Oxycontin (oxycodone) 40mg's wrks best for brk threw. Hydrocodone, Tramadol, suck & r not 4med. - severe pain, thats a crock. Those u mgt as well use if u stubbed Ur toe. Hav these Dr's ever experienced severe, chronic, wide spread pain even 4a day. They'd b climbing the walls. N instead of being more educated in what 2look 4in an abuser; Dr. Shopping, excuses 4running out early on a reg. basis, using dif. INS., paying cash, picking themselves n have lesions all ovr, being overly talkative & talking ovr Dr. 2minipulate 2get what u want, go2 hosp. all ovr that r even an hr away. But the people like us who hav all we can do 2get 2pcp, tests, scans & have inevitable documentation 2warrent the fact we need the good pain med 2giv us some quality of life r being robbed of good managed healthcare.
I hav Trigeminal Neurolgia (had2 brain surgery's, was put on tins of meds, none of which wrkd), Fybromyalgia, Chronic pain (threw out body, joints muscles), Digenerative Disc, Bad arthritis, bone spurs under my knee caps making it extremely painful 2put pressure on 2walk.

If you will read the documentation that comes in the pack it will answer the question. I am fairly sure both of these answers are low for peak plasma levels.
You should also be aware that the drugs will continue to dose you after the patch is removed to try a different drug. It is still moving through your tissue for several hours.
