I don't understand, are you aking Oxycontin? it comes in dosages on 10mg, 15mg, 20mg, 30mg, 40mg, 60mg, and 80mgs (in canada it comes in 5mgs). In fentanyl patches, it comes in 12.5mcg, 25mcg, 50mcg, 75mcgs, and 100mcgs. The patches do work well for some people, but it's not good if you live in a hot place, or sweat alot or run fevers often as it can make the medication release too fast and cause side effects and even death. I didn't like the patches cause they never would stick for me, even with the special tapes and patches you put over them, and eventhough they're suppose to last 72 hours,they never lasted that long for me sometimes, and some doctors wont change it for 48hours. But it all depends, it has it's pros and cons, like it's nice not having to worry about medications for a few days, just slap it on and go, but for people like me, it didn't work like that. Also I built a tolerence to it too fast, fentanyl is a nasty pain medcation to me, I remember I once had it come off during the night and I woke up in the worst withdrawals ever, I was kicking the couch so hard from my legs kicking like crazy uncontrollably, I'm surprised I didn't break the couch. I ended up going the ED and they had to give me a shot of pain medication to help me til the next patch started working, it wasnt fun at all. But this is just my experieince of course, everyone's is diffrent. Also there are several diffrent brands out there of the fentanyl patch, people have their prefence in what works better and which one doesnt. I hope this helps some, just my 2 cents worth.
