my Dr switched me over to the fentanyl 50 mcg/h patch because the oxy just wasn't working as well as it used to.
My first question is the 50 mcg/h patch equal to 80 mg of oxy ?
Also, he gave me hydrocodone 5/500mg for breakthrough, to me , just seems to do nothing.
Second question, What would be a good breakthrough med while on fentanyl when oxy doesn't seem to work as well as it used to.
By the way, the reason I am on pain meds is that I have three bad disks in my lower back.
