I have advanced lupus and fibromyalgia, fentanyl is the only drug that gets me out of bed, without it cringing in constant pain for 15 yrs. It makes it possible to interact with my husband and children (eat at table, sit in living room and talk, help with homework,etc.)
my quality of life sucks, fent helped. you do have to be responsible, and take care of your teeth.
good luck to everyone, pain is awful.
