Pain Management board


Duragesic is a patch that is actually stronger than oxycontin. I'm currently on it and it's great for round the clock pain management. I'd say it defintely doesn't last its recomended 3 days, but you can negotiate the days with your doctor. Most know these really only last 2 days and change the script to reflect that fact. Good luck to you...

I have also had much more success on the patch than OC. I just couldn't get the OC to last more than about 6-8 hours.
