I am a 71 y/o male in treatment for stage 4 prostate ca bone mets. I have previously not had good experience with Oxycontin, Oxycodone or time release morphine.
Fentanyl patches come in several dosages-so if the initial dosage they start you on doesn't control your pain maybe if you are on like the 25mcg call your Dr and maybe He will allow you to increase your dose by putting on another patch till you get pain relief. Sometimes people have to take oral medication in addition for breakthrough pain.Your pain should be under better control with the patches once your dosage is adjusted right. God Bless.
