Dear liz d,
You will hear from a few people on this, but a couple I was on that was stronger was Opana Er and Nucynta Er. There is also Dilaudid I think. Like I said that is just a couple. That being stronger than the percocet... not the fentanyl. Your friend Ruth

Thanks for info,I am researching meds I have been on Percocet and Vic since 2004 and now started fent patch. Pain is a lot better but still hurt. I feel as though I'm getting to a better spot with patch and want to find a strong pill er . I guess it's trial and error at this point. I am new to this Internet communication but find it to be helpful to me and possibly others.thanks again. Liz

The ones the previous poster mentioned are long acting drugs. It sounds like you are looking for a good breakthrough drug since you are already on Fentanyl. The next step up for you would be the plain oxycodone 15mg then 30mg. Percocet has acetaminophen in it so it is dose limited. Roxicodone or plain oxycodone comes in a 15mg and 30mg.

Thank you Dzoo, I probably should have caught that and mentioned those instead. You are very correct. :) Ruth

I've been thinking about you a lot. How r u today and how did the dr appt go? Isn't oxycodone Percocet? How aRe the side effects on rox? I am a busy mom of 3 boys so I need to be okay... you know what I mean. I am a little bit afraid to go up to 100 mcg patch even thought they are working well

Hi Liz, guess I should have read the other respones ,but it is getting late tonight & want to go to bed! I would ask to have your patch increased to 100mg & then you should be able to cut down on the percs. If you are having to take that many, your patch just isn't strong enough... Mary

Thats another good idea because, really, your pain control should come more from your long acting that the short acting.

Thanks... I'm still very new to the patches and they are wonderful so far. I'm a little afraid to go up to 100 but I think that would work out great and lessen my pill intake. Do you know about OxyContin in an er form. I rather take a few breakthrough pills that last a long time than instead of the perc 10 I take every 4hours. What do. Think... thanks much

I don't think your doctor would prescribe a long acting drug like oxycontin with the fentanyl patch. Just my thoughts... Mary free discount card
