Discussions that mention duragesic

Pain Management board


I went from Duragesic to Mylan and went through some of the worst withdrawal symptoms a person could go through. I didn't attribute the vomiting and sweats to the Mylan patches, but my PM did! So, I briefly went back to the Duragesic and started using the Sandoz when they were available. Going from Duragesic to the Sandoz was not even noticable! Yes, they are made by the same lab, and the printing on the patch looks identical.

The Mylan are constructed differently and function through the medication being mixed within the adhesive. The other forms of the patch have medication reservoirs that gently "soak in" over a period of time. The doctor explained this to me, as well as the paperwork inside each box explains.

Changing to Mylan is definitely worth a discussion with your doctor!
