Fentanyl is the strongest narcotic opiate that's available, it's over 80 times stronger than Morphine.

How often do you change the patch?

What other medications have you tried?

Hi Patch is very 3 days,, I cant recall the names, but there has been allot of different tablets etc over the last 24 months. People keep saying these patches are the strongest etc yet I find they dont really make any difference on me at all, If I don't take them there is no real noticeable change.

Is it that you dont get the high? Because I use it and I dont even feel like im on it. But it works great for the pain. Get dome percocet for breakthough pain, that worked for me, or for osteo buy some kratom on line. I give thst to my 82 year old mother, and it works great!. I dont want my mom on narcotics because it has too many horrible side effects. She gets loopy like we do, but im happier when she drinks her "cooking sherry"! St 82 she has the right to do anything that makes her happy! Yeah, check out the kratom! Google kratom, and my best vendor is *Specialty herb store" their website has a 20% discount on everything tomorrow only. But their the best vendor ive found. Kratom hits the same receptors that opiates do. No doctors, it's natural, and it's legal. And yes youll get high on it just likk norco, but it kills the pain better, & longer. Be well.....

These patches can be changed according to any time your physician feels is needed. Some get relief from it for 3 days/72 hours & some only have it work for 2 (or less) days. If you have chronic pain & are narcotic dependent (vs. "addicted" as that term is best used for those using narcotics, alcohol, street drugs to feel high), do not expect to "feel high" from fentanyl. It doesn't work that way. If you have chronic intractable pain & are correctly titrated on narcotic medications; you won't get that "high" feeling but will have a noticeable relief from your pain. For those claiming that fentanyl is "the strongest," you've got bad info. There are other narcotic medications stronger than fentanyl, but I refuse to name them in case there are "fakers" & "doctor shoppers" coming to peruse what to look for/ask for by name & sadly, you best believe there are MANY who would use such info for nefarious reasons. If your medication is not helping you, your doctor can prescribe an assortment of NSAIDs/non-narcotic medications & other narcotics until you find it is managed. Good luck.

Probably the newer Fentanyl Patches that have no Gel in them. They stopped the gel as people would put them on their but but when they sat down it burst open, leaked out too high of a dose, and killed people. But the GEL Was the BEST. Worked Perfectly.

try a different brand of patch some are better than others for different people and it is not that the patch isnt working it is that your body does not like the delivery method ...... different companies use different carriers and that can make a big differance ..... generics are bioequivilants but not the same kinda lik 2 apples and 2 oranges........ 2 kiwi and 2 lemons ....... 2 bananas 2mangos .......... these are all bioequivilants of 4 pieces of fruit but they are not the same and do not effect the body the same way

Re: Verwon (# 1)

Fentanyl is not the strongest opiate in the world it's the stongest prescribed to the masses but not the stongest. Depending on your dose it could be anywhere from 50 to 100 times stronger the. Morphine.

Just thought I'd let you know the facts about fentanyl.
