I have been on valium for a night time muscle relaxer and my doctor just put me on fentanyl 50mg patches for the next 2 months. I can't remember if he said to keep taking the valium or to stop taking the valium! I also take 200mgs of topamax per day and oxy ir 15mg for break thru pain.
This is something that you need to check with your Dr about. Fentanyl is very strong and it can be very dangerous for some to mix benzodiazepines, like Valium, with the patch because it can suppress breathing. The best thing for you to do is to call the office and ask.
