To prevent them falling off, you might want to try using some waterproof medical tape to help keep them on, they also sell a clear sticky patch that can be used over them and it is fine to do so, unless your doctor has given you specific instructions not to.

Learn more Fentanyl details here.

Learn more Suboxone details here.

As to the Suboxone, along with the narcotic Buprenorphine, it also contains Naloxone, which is used to help prevent the abuse of other opiates, while someone is under treatment with it, thus you have to be in full withdrawal, before you take it, or it can throw you into severe, dangerous withdrawals.

So, you'd have to wait a few days, until you are in miserable withdrawals from the Fentanyl, before you can take Suboxone and then, to return to the Fentanyl, you'd have to wait several days after taking the Suboxone, which means that doing this is probably going to cause more trouble than it's worth.

Are there any other questions or comments?

Thank you...the tegaderm i have tried but are a bit expensive for my budget. I have decided if one comes off i will just where the next one for 72 hours instead of 48. I don't want to have to go thru a whole ordeal...plus it wasn't given to me by doc so drug interactions are a favor. A friend gave me 7 and said they were good for pain but i am not onto taking chances and defined.ity not into withdrawl. However after 2 and a half months on the fentanyl i am beginning to experience extreme fatigue...was on methadone and oxycodone/oxymorphone for eight years and never had this before. Not sure if this med is for me. Do you have personal experience w this medication?

I was on fentanyl 100 patch also, I took my first suboxone 20 hours after I removed it an was feeling so much better! Don't believe what all these wanna be doctors tell you.If you waited 48 to 72 hours to take one you've gone through the worst part and shouldn't take anything.Good luck on what ever you decide!

Hey Sick Doc " no bad pun I tented . After 2 years of 16 my of sub strips my pain receptors are all bleeped up. I just wanted to feel I depressed for at least one day in my misrable life from opiates to subs so I took 3 50mcg patch s sucked on one and planted the others they get u high real quick has in not depressed high but wear off in an hour. The strange part is I was an alcoholic for 25 years without the dope I never needed it even for a broken leg beer and Tylenol did wonders on the brain then one minor finger surgery where I had no choice to take Oxys and with in a year I lost my craving for alchoal I never thought in my dreams that would happen. It's been 3 years since I drank and I want to but afraid cause at the end of my drinking I was getting hangovers by my third drink and even 6 blues at the time wouldn't get rid of the pain. It's a strange brain we all have I know you would agree that even though I can't give a percentage some of the withdrawal pain is in your head. I'm not proud of taking fentanyl to get high and for what a temporary high that wears off quicker than blues when you suck on the patches . Well keep up the great advice cause real mds have no idea what pain meds really to people. Need to be a user or an abuser to really show just cause . Take care Doc" thanks for reading I hope!!

Yes The naloxone in suboxone will put u in withdrawal but only if u take one within 1 through about 10hours after u take off the patch or stop taking methadone within at least a day they say that it could kill u if u take a suboxone within like a couple weeks but that is overkill i was always good within a day or two easy with done im not quite sure about the fentanyl as much as i am the methadone. Naloxone is some nasty business i overdosed on methadone and xanax they shot me up with pure naloxone and adrenaline and the paddles but the naloxone was the worst its like going through a week of withdrawels all at once its gnarly. but this is just my experience and advice take or leave it.
