I am still trying to figure out if my depression is related to my medication. Or maybe I'm just trying to figure out how fentanyl affects other people so I can understand how it affects me. I have such a high tolerance to pain medication. I wear a 100 mg patch and a 50 mg patch daily (changed every 72 hours) I also take codeine sulfate (60mg) 7 times a day for breakthrough pain if needed. I have ARD (adhesion related disease) and it is a real challenge to deal with. At least I have found a doctor that doesn't think the pain doesn't exist because it can't be seen on most tests. This is a disease that they are only now admitting causes great pain. The adhesions (scar tissue) are caused by multiple abdominal surgeries. To cure the adhesions they want to do more surgery, which only causes more adhesions. It is enough to drive you crazy. So I am trying to live with mine. If there is anyone out there that is using fentanyl all the time, I really need to hear about your experience with the drug.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
