Re: switched from methadone to fentynal patch having problems
It can be a difficult medication to get used to but if you can persevere things may improve after a bit. It took me quite a while to adjust but once it settled down I have had good pain relief now for a couple years. Some people decide not to continue with the patch as it does effect people differently and it is quite a strong medication. I hope you are able to adjust. You may still need to watch your diet and water intake. I find the patch much easier than taking tablets. Also there are things you can use in combination with the patch. There are lots of threads about the patches so try reading a few. Just do a search. Some of my older threads include lots of my experiences. Welcome to the boards, I hope you find some support here.
