I'm sure its been posted on here time and time again....I'm just a nervous wreck. I have severe fibro, Lyme and arthritis in my knees and hips. I've been on the fentanyl patch for the last 9 years. I was as 75 mg every other day, with oxy 15's for break thru pain. I've been backed down to the 50 patch for about 5 months.....my next patch refill is for 25 mg, with oxy's going from 130 slowly down to 100 this time. I'm pretty nervous, the 50 patches were ok, I sure felt a lot more pain, but I learned to deal with it. My doctor wants to have my off of the fent patches by June-or July....I'm super nervous because I work full time and I'm just scared I won't be able to handle the pain. Tylenol and and Advil don't do a think for me, toradol I think didn't do too much for me either. What is everyone doing? Just hanging in there and dealing with it I guess?? What else can I do.....I just don't think this will help the way the FDA or whoever is controlling and taking pain meds away from responsible people.....I think it will be worse, people will find a way to ease the pain. Am I wrong??? I'm so scared. Thanks for Listening!!
