So if Fentynl (sp?) is totally synthetic, it's a true opioid? Which its' main function is to kill pain, lift mood, and motivate. If that's what opiates do, why did chemists mess with a good thing? Meaning enhancing a more naturally derived pain killer. Obviously both are addictive. But the synthetic meds seem more dangerous and easier to overdose. Would you agree on that?
Wow this is a question for Dave or Jason.I willl tell you what I know?!I was on fentanyl patches a couple yrs ago for a hip replaced numerous times,(w/ numerous infections and blood clots and hospitalizations,etc,)started at 25 (mg,or mcg?) patch every 3 days,and within 6 months I was up to 2-3 100 mg.patches every 3 days.Well I asked my P.M.S to give me something different and foolishly told him I was afraid I was addicted,and he dropped me like a hot potato went to my G.P.&told him what happened, he gave me percocet 10s',one every 4 hrs.I had the WORST 2 wks after that,even w/ the percs' it was .HORRIBLE:SWEATS,CHILLS NAUSEA,INSOMNIA,DIARRHEA,CRAMPS,DRY MOUTH,CRAMPS,TWITCHES... So this is my long,boring answer;for a synthetic drug it's definitely the most addictive drug I've ever had the misfortune of taking!I've only been on this narcotics merry-go-round for 5 yrs,seems like forever.I hope you're able to handle all the problems narcotics cause,you definitely are in need of them,!I feel like I've known you for yrs,you're a wonderful person,please keep in touch,&let us know what happens.God bless...
