Discussions that mention duragesic

Pain Management board


I've been in PM and taking opioids since around the mid 90's. In the beginning it involved osteoarthritis of the knees and chronic daily migraine. I was taking mostly vicodin and Synalgos®-DC (dihydrocodeine/aspirin/caffeine). In the late '90s my doc prescribed Imitrex for my migraines and I've never taken an opioid for them again. From Vicodin & Synalgos I went to OxyContin, then Duragesic and Actiq, then methadone, now MS Contin and OxyDose for BT pain. I also take Ultram and Cymbalta.
