Re: Fentanyl Patch
I was on Fentanyl patch too. Not wanting to eat or smoke it just the "beginners" side effect. When your body gets used to it, the nausea and other unpleasant side effects subside. So don't plan to become skinny on the patch. LOL
Not a good thing if your patch doesn't stick. You don't get enough medication into your system. Make sure your skin is perfectly dry and oil free and than apply the patch. Make sure also not to be over heated, if this happens, patch can just pop. It happened to me once at the party summer time; it got too hot and even though i never drink alcohol, just from overheating my skin got wet and I lost my patch. Actually my DR said it's a good thing, b/c when we overheated we can get too much medication into our body and it can be deadly. I don't want to scare you by any means, just tell you my own experience and what I learned while using it, but if you read on Internet info about opiates, Fentanyl patch causes more deaths than other opiates and mostly b/c of wrong use. Please be careful.
