I've been on 50mcg/hr Fentanyl Transdermal patch, for 9 years. I've had 4 major back surgeries and kidney stones and the patch does not work any more take the patch every 48 hours and now i'm going to a pain clinic and told them that i want off the patch;they told me to leave the patch on for 72 hours and they would give me 10mg off oxycodone to take 3 times a day. Is that enough because i'm hurting in such a way i cannot explain,i have been taking up to 4 or 5 a day and it seems to help a little better. what do you think i should do?

Hello, Ozark! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in so much pain.

However, there is a higher dose of the patches available that you could switch to, it is also available in a 100mcg dosage.

At this time, I doubt the Oxycodone is going to help much, due to the fact that the Fentanyl is the most potent opiate available, so it is much stronger than the Oxycodone.

The FDA lists these medications as being narcotic analgesics, so they have the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

And usually, to come off of the Fentanyl, it must be tapered very slowly.

Does anyone else have any suggestions or advice to offer?

If your in that much pain your best result is to stay on the patch at 50mcg and to get 10-325 Percocet for break thru pain,I could write a book on all the crap I have been thru,so trust me try this first.Godbless take care.
