had several meds to help my pain, but am to the point that my Dr wants to put me on the Fentanyl patches. Right now I am taking oxy 10/325. I take 1 1/2 every 4 hours. I am 74 and have read you should not use these patches over the age of 70. Suggestions please.
Hi,I don't know about an age limit on meds,in the end they're all bad for you.pills don't cure but cover and cope meds. I have never heard of oxy 10/325 worded that I mean you have oxycodone,oxycontin,oxymorphone. But never the way you described,but to your question the patch it will take 3-4 days to build up before you notice any help for the pain,least it did for me so I'd make sure you talk to your doc to give you 30 of what your on now until it starts working,and I was on 120micrograms and had to have 60 of my oxycondone 15 Mrs per month,then you encounter the problem hope not but of them staying on I had to call the company on the box they came in and they sent me free self sticking coverings that go on over your patch,but after two years I gave it up and got back on meds for some its a cham and for others like me it worked fifty percent of the time
