I can't find the post I began on this, so I will start a new one. I used the patch for a month and a half. First month was 25mcg, not too much change. Went up to 50mcg...for two weeks. NEVER AGAIN!!! First I had what was diagnosed as Pneumonia, and since I've read of side effects of the patch, I find out that breathing problems is the no.1 complaint of being on the patch. My feet, which I have not read as a side effect, and ankles were SO swollen they looked like balloons getting ready to pop. I walked like I was climbing stairs, just not quite as high. I felt high, yet sleepy. I took my last patch off last Friday. It's been five days and I'm feeling better. Strange thing is that my back pain hasn't returned yet. We'll see how long it takes before I start hurting, but for now I'm doing pretty darned good except for a constant headache!

Hi everyone. I was on the Fentynl Patch for many years but have been taken off of it via my pain management doctor. She is now giving me Norco but will be taking me off of those as well. Does anyone know of what helps with withdrawal symptoms? She seems to think that the Norco is equal to the Fentynl Patch but I have to vehmently disagree with her. Thank you and I'm really glad this site...
Hi all. Started treatment today. Just wondered if anyone wants to discuss anything, doesn't have to be treatment specifically. Would love to offer support and friendship to anyone needing. Have a good night.
