I have a qestion to anyone who has used Fentyl patches. My pain Dr put me on Duragesic Patches a few months ago for pre fusion pain. When he put me on them he would not use any kind other than brand name Duragesic. He said based on his experience he woulodnt let me use any generic. My Surgeon upped the dosage but also put me on Duragesic as well with no generics. The cost to me is about 400 dollars a month. I am wondering if anyone can give me some insight as to other brands and how they worked. I am having a tough time paying so much more out of pocket, and thought I would see if anyone could tell me of reasons that these are superior or not.
