I have been on the Fentanyl 25 patch for almost 4 months now for chronic neck pain. While I have experienced the best pain relief so far on this medication, I am noticing a pattern of break through pain days on the third day - patch change day. I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same problem. Within 2 hours of changing my patch, I feel a noticeable difference in the level of pain relief. I know that the patch is designed to last even longer than the 72 hour application time, but I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing this same problem. If so, what do you do to get through that last day or 2nd half of the last day? Any help, validation, or suggestions would be much appreciated!!
thank you- glo >:D<
