    I have just received a new prescription for the Duragesic patch. It is 25MCG/HR (fentanyl transdermal system). Do any of you use this, and if so, what should I expect. Is this considered a low dose? I haven't put it on yet because I have an appointment today that I will need to drive to. Didn't want to put it on and have any side affects the first day. Also, if you do use this strength, do you still have to use other pain meds for break-through pain? Also, it says each transdermal system contains: 2.5mg fentanyl.
