New medicine...opinions wanted

I have bipolar disorder, along with arithis is both knees, back and left shoulder. I also suffer from chronic migraine headaches. As you can imagine I take quite a few medicines. My real question is that my doctor is getting ready to take me off my pain medicine for my headaches and my other problems and putting me on the pain patch.

If someone could give me their experiences with the pain patch I would very thankful and if anyone could give me their experiences with the pain patch and the medicines they are taking for their bipolar disorder and how the patch affected their other medicines.

Thank you in advance for any information you can provide me!

Re: New medicine...opinions wanted

I am a Chronic Pain patient as well as BiPolar and PTSD, Cluster Migraines and a Seizure Disorder. I'm on Fentanyl 50mcg every 48 hrs as well as Ultram 200mg/day, and Norco for BT pain. I also take Topomax 100mg, Lamictal 200mg, Seroquel 450mg, Zoloft 50mg, and Neurontin 600 mg and Singulair 10 mg. I also use Axert for onset Migraines. So I as well am on tons of meds but have never had a problem with my pain meds affecting my BP meds.
