Addisons disease. Over the years I have been on many opiode medications. I started Fentanyl 50mcg afew days ago. I was previously on Morephine ER 30mg 3 x per day. I was told to change patch every 48hrs and I was not adequetly pain controlled and was in withdrawl with headache and cold sweats. Am I simply not on a high enough dose?
It does take a couple of patches to build a blood level so you may be better once you have worn 2-3 patches. Usually they give you some immediate release medication to help you while the medication builds up in your system. You may want to let the Dr know that you are not getting good relief just yet but give it time. You may do quite well on this dose once it gets into your system fully.
