will increasing my fentynal patch prevent withdrawal symptoms? I'm wearing 25, have used 50 but after a few weeks I didn't like the effect it had on my skin so i went back to the 25 and tried to manage the pain with exercise. Haven't exercised in over a month and I'm in the midst of a flare up and have been so I've run out of my break thru meds....I had the restless legs today and I take Mirapex for that but it makes me sleepy. I'm thinking if I double my patch (dr won't even work with me on this, told me to go to the ER if i experience withdrawal symptons, yeah but what about the flare up?) that will help with the pain but will it help with the rls which I'm not so sure is related to the meds because I haven't taken any extra meds since yesterday. Don't withdrawals kick in sooner? Sorry for rambling. Thanks.
