Re: Get off fentanyl with withdrawls?

ferd-
why would you think OP percocets are Norco? I have percocet(oxycodone)10mg w/325 acetaminophen for bt pain.

GMI-it depends on what strength of patch you are on and for how long-you should not stop the patch on your own CT-your doctor i am sure would taper you down. But if you do stop the patch CT and you have been on it stable for awhile-there will be no avoiding w/d's-even with the percocets-the W/D from fentanyl is fearce and you will take the percocet thinking it will help-it will very temporarily-and then you will be one hurting pup. Are you wanting to stop the patch because your pain no longer calls for a LA strong med? If that is the case-great-but you should have your doctor taper you off-there is no need to go through a nasty withdrawal.
