hi all
after all the indeciding of to do or not to do the patch
i have been on the fentynl 50mc since sunday..
I didn't have pain relief but it did add to my breathing asthma problems...
I called doc and tried doing the patch for 2days instead of the 3 ...still no i took it off..
and will for now stick to the norco's till i see the doc next wk..and search for new plan..
I think giving it a wk is enough time..what do you all think...did you stay on them longer and then got relief...or are ther some of you that they also did nothing for???

neck,bone spurs pain started 04, back issues and fusion l4,l5 06~hardware removed.
good few yrs. 09 pain sharp, numbness feet,legs, diagnosed fibro, neurop. legs.lung issues.
daily goal do good thing for someone.


  • I tried them for a month with no relief.
    Why did I leave them on so long??? I kept hoping they would kick in. They never did.
    But they do help a lot ofpeople.....just not me.

    Cheers :H

  • Main pain relief came much sooner than one week. I don't think they are going to work if they haven't worked in a week unless they need to be stronger. Sorry you didn't get relief.
