Re: Anyone on Fentanyl patch for neuropathy pain?

I am not at that point yet but I know others who are on the patch and think it is a miracle for pain relief. Since you have already taken Percocets, you shouldn't have any problem but if you notice any trouble breathing, go to the ER right away. You can shower and do all your activities with the patch. The only downside is that it is not refillable so you have to go pick up your prescription every month. This makes it difficult to plan for trips. I know of one man who couldn't get his next prescription before he had to leave for a dream vacation. He had saved for years but forgot about his medication. He had to cancel the trip because he couldn't get itfilled. So just make sure you plan carefully.

And I wish you well with getting control of your pain! Let us know how it goes.
