Re: Which meds do you think work better

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.
Fentanyl worked great for me but I had to change them every 36-48 hours which I did not like usin so quickly. Recently had good results with Nucynta ER. But each of us are so different.
