Do not chew the fentanyl patch. I have a friend who's husband was using them for a bad car accident. Their daughter stole a patch chewed it and died. She was 20 years old with a daughter she will never know. Please don't chew them, your family is the ones who suffer.

"Stand next to a nurse's station to hear what they say about a patient"...??? Yeah right. That unlikely scenario is all in your own imagination, like Pain Sux says. I'm no fan of Oklahoma. There are far too many holes in that part of the Bible Belt, and the predominant redneck ways rival those in most any other southern state...but your "white gods" reference is over the top, dude. Just like your counterpart a few posts earlier, you are spewing the very racism you supposedly condemn. And just as man has this deep-seated need to create gods to reflect their own image, your reference to any imaginary racially bias gods are merely your own personal projections. And, I have no doubt that there are white racists in OK, but apparently your belt is strapped a bit too tight as well...and that is Not OK....not even in Oklahoma.

Don't be CRAZY. By chewing on it or having it in your mouth you are getting a LETHAL dose of Fentanyl. It would kill you.

I have diffused idiopathic skeletel hyperostosis of the lower spine; my right knee has been replaced twice ( the first one came apart); my hip was also replaced with a titanium hip but I was in an accident and the hip was broken in three places. the repaired hip is all wired up now; I also have fibromyalgia
The problem with the back though is the seat of the pain. I apply a 75 mcg patch every 72 hours ... I also take 6 to 8 oxycodone daily. I have been on this regimen for over 8 years. The present dose (above) I am on now was prescribed from the Pain Doctor at our local hospital. At present this combo works pretty good. I do not feel high or anything else other than greatly reduced pain. I function normal and drive and work with machinery that would really do damage otherwise. I take my grand children on camping trips for 5 days at a time ages 3 to 11. My grand daughter and I go biking all the time ... my right knee has only an 88 degree bend so I can't peddle a bike so I have a 2 wheel electric scooter.

OH NO - You have never gone to a doc in OKlahoma - if you don't think they don't accuse you of being a drunk and or drug seeker - - - Go stand by the nursing station - at any goody two shoes hospital - and you can plainly hear what they say - - - But I can see why your taking up for them after all their white GODS - - -

Steve, your concern about having access to proper pain management is valid, but some of your other ideas posted here are offensive. I feel for you, with a torn disk in your neck, and then you have to deal with being snubbed because of how others perceive you, (perhaps) based on your ethnicity. But I find it hard to believe that any doctor has ever come out and accused you of being a "drunk" or "drug seeker" because they see that you are Native American. If there is any racial profiling affecting you, I would imagine your geography would have some bearing on that part, but it's never okay to discriminate. Racism is just plain wrong!

But dear Steve, racial discrimination is a double-edge blade, buddy. You expressed your concerns about being discriminated against yourself, but then you turn around and make discriminatory accusations about "white" boys and girls? And you generalize by claiming to see: "druggies" getting "giant bottle full of meds - with no kind of reason - and all were white boys and girls - all living on social security disability..." You should know better than that, Steve. What goes around comes around. Are you sure YOU aren't the one who is doing all the discriminating?

Stop slinging mud at others who are different from you. That includes "white boys and girls" who you perceive as all being "actual druggies". You are guilty of the very behavior you are complaining about. Yes, there are "actual druggies" out there making it bad for all of us who legitimately need medication to live our very lives - but when you start profiling, YOU become the problem.

BUT Don't agree with the White boys N White girls on ssdi part...sounds like a Diff. issue there..believe me we all get looked at very hard now..it just is what it is..I've seen people almost harassed it feels like to them..even me at times because they want to make sure..states r very hard on docs now to ck.ck.ck. no matter who you r..it's harder for us all..at least where I am..and if u r on ssdi for a reason..the D states disability and alot of times a disability is physical which then leads to pain which can be treated by pain meds if u have a problem so it's not that they have a sore toe and get bottles of pills as u say..they have actual problems for the most part..they don't just pass these things out anymore..so if u can't get them they either feel u don't need them or have done something where they feel u r a risk to them n their practice if u r prescribed them..it's not saying u r but if u fail a U/A or call in and say opps I lost my pills cause you took a months worth in ten days or if they ever do a pill count n u r way off then they can take them away. You just have to be careful now they r hard on us now..but if you do need them and can't get them that sux now also because alot of people do need them but they r scared to prescribe like they used to n more people suffer for it.I've seen it then in alot of cases some of the people go to H to get that opiate they depend on and then it's 100xs worse so it sucks that they r being so hard..but if u don't do them right and you know if u dont..self ck..you may lose or not get them, just what it is now.

Good post..I have seen people that don't need these meds really screw it up for us looking for pain relief in the right ways..it's hard becuase it's the nature of the beast and people will always abuse drugs but it has made things alot harder for us who just want some relief to be active and a decent member of society and enjoy life n family...not look for sure new or higher high..bugs the crap outta me as well. I have seen alot more of a tightening down on r meds. And it's from all the abuse that has gone on for sure. But the people in pain r paying for it with the feeling of being almost harassed at times or feeling like u r looked at as a junky becuase of what people hear about pain med abuse. It's gotten harder in all sorts of ways from all sides. Kinda sad really.

Diet and excersize to deal with ruined joints and or many other issues someone may have,No Way! If u r overweight and have some pain issues a manageable weight would help a little...But in my case it would make no diff what so ever...I wish it would..God do I wish that would help my pain...Life would only be 100xs easier..as to ur post..sure it doesnt hurt to do those things ofcourse not..but it sure as hell is not close to a way to treat Chronic Pain.

A lot of people will do anything to feel high...some can do it and have a tolerance for it and whatever.. others r new to doing these kinda things and hear of a new or diff way to feel high and they do something stupid that their body can't handle and end up in a heap of trouble or dead...it's just not worth the risk. It's the whole it could never happen to me thoughts that eventually lead to it happening to them...it will catch up sooner or later It usually does and you can't undo what is already done..but it is what it is..it sux tho cause as with all things it hurts the people who try to do things right n makes the laws almost impossible even when your on the right path. But it's always been that way and always will be it's the cycle we live..but I'd rather not b chasing after something that always has me running and that i am always trying to catch and will do anything to get. Gets tiring n I've seen it wear alot of people out. But they have to find out for themselves in most cases..You just hope they don't pay to harshly while they figure out what It can n will do to them. The scary thing is when they really have no idea what they r doing or what they can handle and really do end up dead from it...it's scary that way..n it's usually someone telling them how great it is..yeah right.

Have the lot of you that are actually giving instructions on how to chew a TRANSDERMAL PAIN PATCH, lost leave of your senses?!
These patches say TRANSDERMAL for a reason, they are to be applied to your skin, for the love of God! People have literally died because they chose to chew a morphine patch.
