For those of you on Fentanyl or have used the product in the past,…did you notice any difference in the performance, if the brand/maker was switched.
I have used both the gel filled patch and the tape coated product, and feel that my pain reduction is not as good when on the tape coated type.
I do see my PCD on the 15th (Friday) for a review of my med's, (every 30 days) .....and will do so as long as changes are being made to script
s and dosage. At the moment, I'm on the 25mcg, and at first it seemed to work fairly well, but has not lately ever since I change brands. I also have a complaint with the 72hr length of time I'm supposed to wear it.
I have not noticed a difference of wether I'm working in a warmer environment (Work) or staying at home where it is cooler, and I also switch body placement as well. My PCD also script
ed me 120ct of the 7.5 Percocet's,... and I have been keeping a tight reign on use of it, as Im allowed X4…but have been trying to limit them to X2. I just hate using two different narcotics at the same time. I realize the Percocet's are for BT, but it sure seems like they are used as an addition to my baseline if used on a regular basis.
Any thoughts and or past experience would be appreciated. (forgot to add that I'm hitting the BT med's…all four of them on the third day, and is so aggravating!)
