Then even the lowest dose will make you nauseous. I have a high tolerance but I still felt like I wanted to not eat and if I did, for that first patch I would throw it up. But I hung with it and by the second patch I managed to keep food down. I was on the patch for about a year and it gives excellent pain management but I had to go up in dosage after four months 25 to 50 every three days. I found that even alternating places on the body was not easy cause of hair. Sometimes I had to put little pieces of gauze tape to make sure it did not fall off. Good luck B
No. My understanding is that Fentanyl patches are one of the strongest narcotic medications available. These are usually the "last resort" for people with severe, chronic pain. Thus, if you have a "low tolerance" for narcotics, it should not take more than a low dose of another medication to help you.
