Reviews for Duragesic-75
For Chronic Pain "In 7 yrs of going through every painkiller known to man my pain management doc finally found a combination that works very well for me and gave back some of my life. My combination is Fentanyl 25 and Norco 10/325 for breakthrough pain. I have practically no side effects and does very well at managing my pain 24/7. I can function up to 4 hrs before the pain levels start to rise and have to stop. My issues are severe lower back pain from degenerative and bulging disks L 3-6. Both hips broken and severe osteoarthritis, same for right knee. My right Achilles tendon was torn up by a dog resulting in every infection including MRSA and Cellulitis. Multiple surgery's and 18 months to close. Now very painful and always a burning pain. This combination knocks out 90%."

For Pain "I used this for several years with good results. Only problem was I metabolized the medicine too quickly and the third day was more painful. My decidedly low-tech solution was to remove only 2/3 of the backing plastic the first couple days, then remove the last bit for the third day. I take extended release morphine now and it works just as well. It's a toss-up between wearing the giant patch and dosage issues verses remembering to take a pill every 8 hours. "

For Pain "If this medicine works it's great, however a good amount of the time the patch was as full when it was time to change it as it was when I put it on. Then the side effects they list don't even come close to everything you go through. However ER Staff have stated that most patients taking this drug usually go back on it as the withdrawals are hard to handle."

For Pain "I have been on Duragesic 75mg for about 5 months now and it has helped more than all the other pain killers I have been on. I have had three major back surgery's plus DDD and osteoporosis. The only thing is make sure you have water proof tape around because they sometimes become loose and fall off and you don't want that."
