I talk to my doctor in less than 2 weeks when I think I'll ask her about upping my patch dosage from 50mcg to the next level, would that be 75 mcg? I'm still in pain every day, L7/L8. I have both the morphine and methadone left from trial runs before she put me on the patch. I remember her saying one or the other would be okay to use for bt pain but can't remember which one.
Laurie is right on the next dose up & also don't take methadone!~ you have to take it on a regular basis for it to build a certain dose in the blood for it to even work. You need a breakthru pain med that works right away not tomorrow! You wold have to be on the methadoe forever my friend. Go for the morphine ir , which means instant relief, forget that darn Methadone.!Fentanyl would be upped to 75 or maybe 100mg every 3 days or whatever schedule they have you on. Good luck to you...
