[QUOTE=Shoreline;3584658]...there are reasons to avoid the use of Fentanyl , specifically the fact it's a NMDA receptor agonsit, an NMDA anatagonsits can slow tolerance, increase pain thresholds and help more with neuro pain...


Yet more education at your feet!

I had no idea that fentanyl was an NMDA receptor agonist. But it sure explains a lot, and why I developed tolerance so quickly to the Duragesic patches and the Actiq.

Thanks once again for enlightening me.:)

And, have a great time in Cancun.
