things about it! ,i,m currently taking lortab, have been for years! though it does not take all my pain away it does take 50 to 30% of it away and i,m able to do some stuff around the house with out severe pain! isn,t the patch stronger and more harmful to me and why should i change when i,m at least able to do some stuff to make my mind feel better and not feel use less about myself!
It's all how you respond to a higher amount of opiates,they all act the same but with higher degree of feeling the drug. You'll feel the same if they write a scrip for a small microgram patch,something similar to the amount of vicodin your taking,if they write a bigger say 50 microgram you'll feel like you would if you take say 2x the amount of vicodin. The stuff is very potent & I'm sure your doc will do the conversion right & you may feel a little more euphoric(high) but that will go away in time & you should just get pain relief.
I've used fentanyl before and It took ALL my pain away.. It even took any itchy area's I had on my body. It's an extremely strong narcotic but if the dosage is right like Buddie said you shouldn't feel to much of a difference. You also only have to change to patch every 72 hours and rarely every 48 hours as needed. It's a great narcotic and I believe is under used for patients with chronic pain. I've done a lot of research on the different generics and I've come up with MYLAN brand being the best Fentanyl Patch that's out there do to the fact that the size of the patch is smaller and its adhesive properties far surpass other generics and brand names. Hope this helps.
