Hello everyone. I want to ask how long it took people to find the right meds or combo of meds to give them significant relief. Ive tried Kadian oxycontin and now im on the fentanyl patch at quite a high dose at 75 mcg every 48 hrs with oxycodone 15 mg for breakthru pain ( 2 a day) Im finding that the breakthru med works better then the fentanyl. Is that normal? Im not looking to run a marathon but I would like to at least be somewhat active again. Right now, Im still in bed most of the day. I dont know what to do. My Dr usually asks me what do I want to do. I dont know what to tell him. Im really surprised the patch isnt working. I was better off on the oxycontin but I hated the roller coaster of pain from that. I hope everyone is feeling good these days!
