Thanks for your detailed response. Interesting on the Fentanyl. As for my Dilaudid, my PM doctor wrote it as take it 3 times a day. So, my case is a little different in that aspect. I'm just thankful that he's found a combo that doesn't have me in horrific pain.
Again, thanks for taking the time to write back to me explaining all of this. I've been on the patch before, but not for long and not at this dose (my last flare up wasn't as bad as this one)... plus I'm new to PM in general... so advice/support/help is appreciated
Hope you're having a good week.
