I was given duragesic patches, first 25 then increased to 50. I found that they started to fade before it was time to switch them (72 hours)
Also, did anyone else have a tough time getting adjusted to them either initially or if a day or so was missed? I was extremely nauseated at first and vomited a lot! I really think it was just too strong at first as I had not been on any constant pain medication.
I have recently had to stop using these due to lack of insurance, and my doctor prescribed Lortab 10/325 (cheaper without insurance) how do you figure these equate? I know it sounds like a dumb questions...but I am trying to figure this since he wrote the Lortab prescription "take two tablets three times per day" does that sound like a 50 duragesic??? (I realize this is comparing apples to oranges!!! lol)
