My husband wants to stop and I am concerned since it is saturday and I can not talk to his doc. Thanks.
because patches are given to patients for pain I wonder why he would want to stop using them... does he have "breakthrough" pain meds? if he does and is more comfortable with just those then he should talk to his doctor first and allow the Dr to know why - withdraw is likely because it only takes hours for the meds from the patch to enter your blood stream, be careful. GOOD LUCK
