I have been using the 25 mcg duragesic matrix style patches for 4 months. They are no longer lasting the three days nor are they helping for the first 3 hours after the new one is places. Since there in no gel, can I cut them in quaters and placeone inside my mouth for about 30 min just to get the pain relief and then do the same when the pain gets bad again?

I took fentanyl patch for one year. I started on 25 mg and very quickly went to 100 mg because they were not helping my pain. I had seen a friend take one off his arm after he had worn it for a few days and he said that helped him a lot. So I got the bright ideal to do it myself. At first I would wear the patch for three days as prescribed then I would eat it. It didn't seem to help me at all. One day I decided to try eating a fresh one. I had the good kind where you could get all the medicine out of the patch and it wasnt necessary to eat it unless you wanted to. It helped with my pain a little better than wearing it. The only problem with that is I was eating one a day and one of them was supposed to last three days. That meant ever month I was going through withdrawals that was hell on earth it seemed.
Finally I ask my doctor if he could put me on something different that they just wasn't helping me that much. He switched me to another drug that works great and I don't even have to take as many as prescribed a day.
After reading all about fentanyl I realized it was the Grace of God that I'm alive. According to everything I've read on people abusing fentanyl I know with out a doubt I should be dead or in a vegatated state because I abused them worse than anyone I read about. I just thank the Lord Jesus Christ that I'm alive today.
The medicine I'm on now has been a life changer for me and it gets rid of almost all of my pain. I don't have the urge to take more than I'm supposed too. I always feel clear headed and not dopey.
The danger of fentanyl is you can put on several patches or eat several and never feel like you have overdosed. If you take to many oxy ot hydrocodone you get sick and throw up or just pass out and wake up in ICU. I know because I did that a few times.
The medication I'm on now is 10 mg of methadone. It is by far the best pain medication I ever took. I been on the same dosage for five years. I am mostly completely out of pain most of the time. For me it's been a life saver in more ways than one.
I'm thankful to be alive because by all rights I should be dead. I would not recommend fentanyl to my worse enemy.

I had a quarter of a 100 mg patch about two years ago when i was highly addicted to pills and opanas. I had it on for about an hour or so and then put the rest somewhere for later. Anyways. Now i have a 200$ a day opiate habit and i felt nothing from my two opana ir 10 mgs. I then put on an 1/8th of a 100 mcg fentanyl patch and felt okay. I woke up brutally sick this morning and used last nights piece and got slightly unsick. I then took the rest of my quarter with maybe a little more. I do recall not being able to breathe very easily.. I'm not sick and i feel decent but not as good as i usually do. I'm 110 lbs and 5 foot 3 so i'm not that big but i have a 6 year opiate tolerance so that's all i know!

30s win all day hands down in my opinion. They actually work for pain unlike fentanyl. I could get nothing from it. And yes I have a recently crushed lumbar

You are so misunderstood. If you're robbing pharmacies then yeah you might be part of the problem. But when you acquire them through other means how is that the buyers fault??? Oh yeah it isn't. Unless someone actually does od. Which sucks and I sympathize with family members or loved ones. But that was the users decision there. Not the supplier.

Oh and to all the people out there calling out the 'junkies' and blaming those who can't get their medicine from a doctor for whatever the reason. Lol. Where do we acquire them?? We don't brew that stuff up in a lab. Some of you people sicken me. Idc who it is or what kinda question they are asking about this stuff. They just want an honest opinion and are actually trying to be fairly safe about it. Who are you to judge and call names and look down on these people??? I just don't get it. I think if you od off of these things you probably shouldn't of had any business with even a hydrocodone or two. They are not all they are made out to be. Six norco tens treat me better than a patch every time.

Man I don't know what all the buzz about these things are honestly. I think they suck. I now have my fourth 75mcg patch. The previous three I was told not to chew and definitely not swallow. Albeit my tolerance is fairly high. Say 60mgs of oxycodone only do me good for about two maybe three hours if I'm lucky. Anyways long story short I took them and honestly I couldn't feel a damn thing. I think they are overrated. I'd rather have 30mgs of oxycodone of these worthless patches any day. Idk.

To MethaContin85:

Our streets are flooded with prescription pain killers and narcotics. It's easier to get illicit drugs than it is to find a deal at Walmart... lol but I just want to say @MethaContin85 you are NOT a recovering opiate addict.. All you did was switch dealers to a licensed and insured dealer.. They draw more profit than street dealers but if one of their customers overdoses then they are protected.. Methadone was the first physical addiction I ever had and that was from recreational use... The effects were just as good as Oxy but methadone lasts all day... You are not in recovery. You still feed your addiction daily. They have just led you to believe you are in "treatment/recovery"...

Hi
I am an opiate user, I have RX's from my dr, and have struggled with chronic constipation because of it. My friend recently died because he had chronic constipation which led to a tear in his intestines, he never went to the dr though which probably would have saved his life. I've tried everything and nothing worked. Finally my dr put me on Amitiza, it really saved me. It caused me no cramps or side effects personally. I did have to jump through hoops for the insurance to cover it, and then it's still pricey (depending on your insurance), but it's totally worth it. Hope this helps. I know how terrible it is to deal with pain your entire life, hugs.

To Meh125,

Yea the something that needs to be done is called "parenting". If it had been done there wouldnt be an issue. There are people in real pain and adults that can choose what life they want. Its not up to people to parent your children or suffer because of them.

If I were not on the fentanyl patch I would suffer everyday of my life with chronic nerve pain in my legs and feet and would rather be dead but because of the patch I have a life and can actually be comfortable and even work and I have tried it all so I disagree.
