    I have had to switch to the fentanyl patches b/c of the cost of the duragesic patches. I don't find them to work as well. Anyobe else's view on the 2 patches?

    one is the Brand name and one is the
    Generic. I find most generic products do NOT work as well for me. If you can afford the brand name always request it. It's ok to try generics on most prescriptions but for something as important as our pain control, or heart medication or various medications for serious conditions I stick with the brand names. I did try my pain medication's generic at the advice of one of the pharmacists that was on duty that day. I had to go a month of it not working well. I asked the other pharmacist and she said they have had many complaints...I wish the first one had told me!

    Thanks for your reply. I don't think the generic works as well.
