I really need all your help on this one. I have been using fentanyl patches,150 mcg every 72 hrs for three months. I have wished (prayed) so hard that this would work for me, so much to the point, I have made excuses to my husband and myself and tried to ignore the side effects. But I can't do it any longer. The side effects have now really affected the quality of my life. Vomiting, anxiety, sweating, sleep apnea, depression, lethargy, and severe rashes. I am also still taking a lot of my breakthrough medication (codeine sulfate, 60mg up to 7x's per day). I have ARD (adhesion related disease). I see my pm doc next week, along with my husband, who said to me last nite "this isn't working". Could I please hear from others who are successfully living with their pain, what are you being prescribed? and how is it working for you? Thank you, thank you thank you.
