Thanks a bunch for the info. And thanks Jules for the wake up call. I looked up the info regarding the fentanyl patch and read it about four times.
Spark, unfortunately, Suboxone is not available in Canada. I already considered that route. Fortunately, fentanyl now comes in a 12.5 mg dose as well, so when I taper from 50mg I can go to 37.5 instead of 25...make sense? Essentially, I'll be wearing two patches(a 25mg and a 12.5mg), however it will be less of a drop.
I remember the girl who had a very hard time with fentanyl, so I mentioned this to my doctor today. Unfortunately, its our last option, as I cannot seem to hold anything down. I'm popping perks whenever I throw up, so we really don't know how much I'm getting. Now, I'm booked for a scope (tube down the throat, into the stomach) to see what else is going on. I'm only 31 and have so much on my plate right now - its amazing I haven't cracked!!
In terms of the potency, will I feel the fentanyl more than the oxy's and perks? I certainly hope not. The euphoria feeling is what I'm NOT supposed to feel, otherwise this is better for the addict, right? Hmm, so much to consider. I actually have been considering cold turkey, as I'm getting very frustrated. I just want to go away and deal with it, but my doctors have advised me NOT to, due to the other issues I'm facing at the moment.
Thanks again for the info, I appreciate it more than you know. Its better to hear from someone with experience, rather than some article on the internet stating "what if's" and such.
