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

Never chew your patch! Any portion could be lethal!

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??

My fiancé died 3 weeks ago from chewing a patch. Please think of the others you leave behind when doing this stupid s***.

I do not do it anymore because of the withdraws. I am trying to come off them as we speak. Thank you for all your input.

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.

hurting unit.. I want to fire my Dr. but I'm on pain meds and a friend said they would let me use there old patch when there done with it every three days, will an old patch give me any pain relief if I just put it on my body? or would I have to chew it?

I do all the time. But very high tolerance and take em in quarters after I've worn it a day or two. Of your not on oxcy 30 or something very high dose dont even try it. Out makes my patch last a couple days longer. Know your level. Or die.

Rick, are you chewing on an WHOLE unused/new 100mcg patch while wearing another? If so, that is so dangerous. No doctor would ever prescribe that to a patient, not legally.

I've built up a tolerance over the past 2 years also, but not near as far to put a whole new patch in my mouth, that would certainly kill me. Not sure how you intend to maintain that level, but my guess is that you will be suffering some horrible withdrawals one day soon when you cannot access enough of the patches your body has become accustomed to. Man, why would you want to do that to yourself? Is the pain that bad, or is it pure addiction?
