It's odd to think anyone would want to chew these patches to feel high. I've been prescribed these patches for a few years now, and there's no way you can feel "HIGH" from taking more than prescribed - not even by chewing them. these patches provide excellent pain relief, and it makes you sleepy.

I never get that "false sense of euphoria", not even when I've put more on than I was supposed to - just more pain relief, which was my goal. Not even when I put a very small strip of a used patch under my tongue a few times when my pain was unbearable --it only gave me almost instant pain relief-- but no "HIGH". And there has been an occasion or two when I had to quickly yank off my patch(es) due to flushes of hives, super hot and heavy heartbeat/breathing. But, did I feel "HIGH"?? Hell no!

Thank you for speaking your truth! My son was injured in a car accident in 2013 and after relocating to a rural area earlier this year, he has had one hell of a time finding a dr. who will prescribe his pain meds. It appears that due to the high rate of prescription drug abuse (by those they are prescribed for and those who obtain them illegally), medical professionals are becoming more reluctant to write scripts for pain meds. They are opting to send their patients to pain management clinica instead. Unfortunately for my son, his insurance denied the referral to the pain clinic. We had to "shop" for a doctor in this area that would cover his meds.....and he isnt on anything stronger than Tramadol. Then you got this guy....with patches that he wants to know how to they're candy. Frankly, it really pisses me off. What a sorry set of circumstances....

Wow lady it's not their fault they were trying to educate their self to not hurt them self it's his choice whether to do it or not so put him trying to kill himself on him he needs to go to a doctor and u can have him admitted any parent can now stop trying to blame every one else no one forced him to do that it's his own choice he's 20 some freaking years old maybe u didn't raise him right put the blame on yourself and he makes his own decisions.

People - it's not mg it's mcg - 100 mg of Fentnyl would stop your heart in about 2 minutes. Sucking the gel via the gums only puts more drug into your system faster thus increasing risk of OD. If you don't die you will pass out or fall asleep. You won't feel high only put to sleep / it's like killing a sick dog or cat. Fentanyl patches can only be used as a patch because you have no idea how much of the drug will get into your body and only an i**** would risk life for what will only be a dirt nap or a 13 hour sleep coma

While I agree that chewing a fentanyl patch is not a good idea, as I know two people who died doing this, this year. However you need to realize that some people are going to try it no matter what you tell them. In fact telling them not to do it at all, may increase their desire to take their high to a new level. Keeping all this in mind, I would tell people that if they are going to do this, they should first chew on a TINY little piece of the patch, and then wait an hour and see how they feel. You can always add more, but you cant remove it if you are over dosing. I, personally know 2 people who died of this in the last nine months. So, if you must try this, a 100 mcg patch has a total of almost 17mg of Fentanyl. So, even if you cut the patch into 16 pieces and chew one piece, you are taking over 1000 mcg's of Fentanyl. More than enough to kill an average person in the 160 pound weight of a person who has no tolerance to it.
Also, I get so angry at people who abuse this type of drug because I suffered a spinal chord injury, and I am in chronic pain. I have had surgery but it was too late, as the nerve is permanently damaged, and too much time went by the time I got injured and the time I got to surgery. I legitimately need pain medication, and have always taken them as prescribed, and never gave even one pill to anyone, ever. So because these stupid kids and adults are getting their hands on these drugs they are dying by the bus load, and making it nearly impossible to find a doctor to prescribe me any medication that comes anywhere near relieving my pain

If I take the patch normally would it make me feel high?

I was in a almost fatal car accident 7 years ago, i get worse every year that goes by,my back is in terrible shape,i have fibromyalgia ,my knees are very bad,etc...,the doctors started me on hydrocodone after the wreck been on them ever since,and i tell right now i use to get around partying tried alot of things but alcohol was my drug of choice,been sober for 10 years,i use to see people take hands full of pills,i tried two norcos 10 mg which is what i am prescribed but not 2 at a time ,it nearly made me puke,i do not see how people can take pills like that,but it does hurt the people that need it for chronic pain because the doctors are so funny about giving pain meds,if i knew how to produce my own pain pills i would instead of dealing with doctors.

Cutting 100mcg patch into 4 doesn't make each 1/4 a 25mcg!
Put it on your skin where it belongs, unless you have a death wish!

7 patches should last you 21 days...
RX = 1 patch every 72 hours... Use a heating pad to quick start it but not for more than 5-10 mins per patch!
I've also found they work best on the chest covered by a tegrederm bandage.

Please do NOT chew this FENTANYL patch. My fiance was in pain. For some reason thought it was ok to chew a 50mg patch, had a few beers and was a deadly mix. Please DO NOT CHEW THIS PATCH.

I take 24mcg fentynal patches. I placed a partially used on in my mouth on the way to dispose because my hands were full and accidentally swallowed it last night. I didn't die in my sleep but am a little tired but no "high". Am I OK

HOW so are you a 'recovering' addict IF you are still on drugs (methadone)? You have just traded one drug for a different one and 'recovery' is about being clean & SOBER, is it not??

I have cut a 100 mg in half (being only 16 and a 115lb female) my tolerance is very high. I have ingested all of the gelitin. put it in the side of your gums and let it sit and soak up through the blood vessels. Youll get a high quicker than the 3 day wait. 50 mg is okay depending on your tolerance.
