Many people have to change it every 2 days. Tell your dr about it, he should adapt your prescription to your needs.

Hey kimberleyj. Are your fentanyl patches 3-5day patches that you feel are not offering relief after day 2? Or are they the much more common 2 day fentanyl patches? If yours are 3-5 day patches are then my advice is to go see your Dr. ASAP to find out why your pain has increased so much & ask him about stronger duragesic patches in different strengths that can be wore alone/together depending on your pain that day or maybe even fentanyl lollipops. The lollipops are nice & offer instant relief cuz you "suck" til your required pain relief needs are met then set sucker aside til needed again.
