    I have been told that they will be giving me the Fentanyl pain patch and I just want to know if it does give you back some of your life that we had before this DD.

    I took it for about 2 months and then went off of it because I felt too drugged up.

    It works, but it is like mscontin, in that it sits in the background and you don't realize how much it is building up in your system until you take the patch off.

    Hello
    When I was on the patch the dosage was gradually increased there are several strengths and it can be very effective! They stay on reasonably well...nothing is perfect. I wore mine on my upper arms, and switched every three days. I eventually after almost a year developed a resistance to it. I do recommend it as long as they help you get aclimated sp?

    Take care
