    Fentanyl for Pain (acute); Pain (chronic)

    For decades I have had severe pain (cervical vertebrae and back) with constant headaches. For about 3 years I go to the pain therapy and take the Fentanyl patch 25 mg / h. Unfortunately, the dosage is no longer sufficient, so I’m now (since 3 weeks) to 50 mg / h. So much for dependence! As soon as the effect wears off, I have an inner restlessness associated with feelings of anxiety (then I can not stand still, have this tingling sensation in my legs). Common side effects include constipation, depression, sweats, insomnia. Would like to sell the patch (gradually, despite the known side effects), but there are comparable alternatives?

    Fentanyl for Pain (joint)

    These are pain plasters from the family of opioids. The actual task of the drug, namely the pain suppression is excellently fulfilled, only with me the side effects were too strong. They expressed themselves in extremely severe depression, severe nausea, and complete insomnia. Insomnia has lasted until 2 weeks after weaning. Previously, I took a morphine (MST), which the doctor has coldly stopped when prescribing the fentanyl patch, so that still very strong withdrawal symptoms were added. And everyone who knows this, will understand that you can not stand both together. So after 3 days I stopped the bandages and did not take anything for 24 hours. Thereafter, with a reduced dose of MST, he got back in, and 1 hour later the withdrawal symptoms disappeared. That’s why I know first that it was.

    Side effects: Insomnia; Depressions; Nausea
