Hi Kat, Just writing to let you know I was put on the patch awhile back 50, 75, mcg's. They did not help me to much pain wise, in fact they put me in more pain. The reason why I was allergic to it, strange isn't it?? I had more luck with the Methadone for my illness, everybody has a different pain relief then other's. I know how you feel i was in the same way a few weeks ago. Hang In there things will get better for you!!!!

Hey pirate! I'm curious about your allergy to the fentanyl patch...how did that happen? Were you able to make it stick well? Did you have any "tricks" you could share in keeping it on? I'm about 4 months in on this patch thing, and it seems when it sticks, and I first up my dose - it's great...then came the humidity and my body doesn't seem to reach that level of relief it did in the beginning, plus my sweating is causing the adhesion to deactivate. I'm considering switching back to oral meds, but scared too. I'm so glad you have had luck with Methadone; I hope you continue down that path.

Take care, and next time when you post, you could post this as a discussion, that way everyone will see it all the time; instead of just when they first log on in the "What's happening Now" tab. Good luck, B
