Re: Which meds do you think work better

Hi Chris. I find for me the patch is the way to go, for a couple of reasons. First, I have memory difficulty due to a TBI (traumatic brain injury) and remembering to take meds is a complicated affair. I wear the 75mcg/hr. At one time I thought I was allergic to the adhesive, so I switched to Morphine ER. I went back to the patch, and no more rash. It just works out better to not have to forget to take a pill, have the pain go up, and then battle that. Your doctor is the one who will make the ultimate decision, but for me, the patch is the way to go. Remember though, everyone is different, and what might work for me, may not be the best for you. Good luck.
