Hi, I read this post and just wondered if you knew if they shipped this product to the united kingdom (whether this was still free?) and also what would the actual telephone number be that i'd dial from here? (international dialling codes etc!?) I have been prescribed (and it has a few names on the box so i'll put them all on here for you!) Fentynal or durogesic DTrans and/or transdermal patches. I think they are all different ways of saying the same thing. It is a 50 mcg/hr patch that i'm to change every 72 hours. Does that sound about right for the patches mentioned in your post that i've included for clarity below? Thank you in advance for any help you can provide... Take care, Shelby xx "Re: Can I get opinions on Fentynal pain patches 30/08/06 Hi there I just wanted to give you my input on the Patches. I have been a Chronic Pain Patient for 8 years now and have tried everything. About 5 years ago, I was put on the 100mcg/hr patch, 2 of them, every 2 days. My pain level went down tremendously, and absolutely no side effects. The only problem I had was keeping them on my skin! You can call Janssen at 1-800-526-7766 and tell them that you would like to order the covers to keep them on. You have to use the Janssen NDC # 50-458-0036-05 or they won't give them to you. These covers are free and they ship them for free. They are wonderful and allow you to get the most use out of the patch. I use the Generic made by Mylan because they're much smaller and they don't have the jelly-like stuff inside of them and they are much easier. But in order to get the covers, you have to tell them that you use their brand name, Duragesic. Anyway, please do give them a try. They do help a lot. I have never had one side effect from them except when my doctor would drag her tail in getting my refill because after you start wearing them, you can't just stop or you will feel really bad because of withdrawl. On another note, if your Dr told you that you HAVE to use these or they won't treat you, I would run fast to another clinic!! They have no right to tell you that you must do anything!! You have rights! Please look at the Pain Patients Bill Of Rights!! Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Oh, also, I now have the Morphine Pump Implant and I am still currently on the Patches as well as a lot of Lortab and Somas every day. It's working, but it takes a while till we can get it to the correct dose I wish you good and pain free days! diane "
