Meaning, what were the medicines you were taking up to the point where you said , hey doc, we have got to get drastic here! Thank you and God Bless! Dr. Trevor
I actually started with the original Fentanyl patch, 50mc @ 72 hrs. I gradually migrated up the scale ending with the generic, better adhesive patch, 100mc @ 48 hrs.
The pain control was outstanding!! But as we all know, the law of diminishing return, after a couple of yrs. The same patch was completely ineffective. I switched to 100mg ER morphine and oxy ir for breakthrough. I think after staying off the patch for a while, I'll probably go back to it, it will be more effective by then. I wish they allowed tolerant Fentanyl patients to go up to 125 or 150mc, but that won't happen!
