... in mg? My Dr said she had to cut me back to meet the CDC narcotics limit of 90 (mg or ? Not sure what they call it) per day I take 4 of 7.5mg Percocet per day and a 37.5 mcg fentanyl patch every 48 hours. How is the patch counted toward the limit per day since it is in vivo delivery of 37.5mcg/hr. This is for my chronic pain.
Finlander; Sorry I can't help you with this, You should talk to your doctor, They have a list from the CDC THAT CROSS REFERENCES THE TOTAL MG that all these different medications well be equal to. But I can see your up against it too because you're having to use the patches every 48 hours instead of 72 hours so that is going to increase the total Mg. Just check with the doctor at your next appointment and see where you're at. At least you have a doctor willing to switch you and not send you to a pain clinic. good luck Chuck1957
