David Says:

Two different pain medications can and usually do effect everyone differently whether it's the same dosage or not. The results would be different every time, based on tolerance, body chemistry, underlying health conditions, and several other personal factors.

Fentanyl is also regarded as a significantly more potent pain medication. If you tried to take the amount of Roxicodone that would equal Fentanyl, you may as well have overdosed on Roxicodone.

All in all, there is really no safe way to compare two very diiferent opiates. Narcotic conversions are innaccurate and are really just an educated guess. Be very careful when using Fentanyl. Many people are not aware that the 100mcg is only an hourly absorbtion rate and the patches come in doses from 2.5-10mg for a 72 hour period. Fentanyl is estimated at 80-100 times stronger than morphine, just to give an idea to its potency.

I hope this helps!

Additionally, the lowest dose of fentanyl spray (100mcg) should only be prescribed to patients who are opioid tolerant (taking at least the equivalent of 60 mg morphine daily) to reduce risk of respiratory depression.
