My pain doc has me currently on Lorcet 10 mg bid, and 25 mcg fentenyl duragrsic patch for past injuries to my right leg, degen disc disease, fibromyalgia, joint pain, arthritis, and nerve damage to my right leg and knee. I was just switched from oxycontin 20 mg every evening due to severe nausea to the duragesic patch. The fentenyl patch is making me severely depressed,lethargic and extremely tired. I hate them and Ive told my doctor about all of these things and she still has not changed and/or adjusted my medicines. Im close to miserable. What can I do to get her to change this med to a different med? Hopefully one that's effective without these terrible side effects?? Please any Suggestions???
Ask your doc for Opana, it certainly wouldn't hurt to give it a try. It may make you drowsy as well, yet I suspect not as badly as the patch.
Doesn't hurt to ask!!
I've fibro too, and I must tell you that Baclofen has been a wonder med for me!
You might want to ask for it as well.
Best wishes angelgal !!
