    Hi all

    My pain consultant wants to start using this medication in a very low dosage administered by a stick-on patch.

    Anyone any experience of same? He says it may make me feel sick for a while but shouldn't be a problem thereafter. However, he also says as I begin to tolerate the dosage I'll need to keep stepping it up. I'm only 52 and this sounds like a life-sentence of taking this drug and I'm anxious about it.

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers

    for this response.

    Bumping to see if there are anymore, given the speed at which the board moves now.
