Re: ATT: Fentanyl/Dilaudid/Oxy users... please help w/?'s!

Well you shouldn't have any w/d's the Fentanyl will replace the oxy in your system. The fentanyl should give you pretty good pain coverage, it's the strongest out patient narcotic, and dilaudid works on a different pain center, so they should compliment each other well.

When you put your patch on, make sure you place it somewhere above your breast line, this is the only way it works correctly....placement, body heat has a lot to do with how well it works.

Be careful of taking too hot of baths as this can make too much of the med release too soon.

Good luck and welcome to the PM boards!
