I had my PM Doctor’s appt and I decided to inform my doctor that my current meds where not cutting it and I was in consistent pain. I decided not to mention the different types of meds that I might try to my doctor (as other members suggested I do on my other post). Even though I didn’t do what I originally planned to do by putting up my last post (which is ask for other’s what types of meds so I could make the suggestion to my doctor) none the less I am glad I posted it and received the answers , comments and concerns from everyone.
) My doctor decided to take me off my current pain meds; Oxycontin and my breakthrough Norco all together. He gave me Oxycotin 20mg to wean me off, I just started getting off and starting my new meds today and must say I am a little freaked out of the withdrawal :jawdrop: symptoms. My new meds my doctor gave me to replace the Oxycontin and Norco is Fentenyl patch 75mg and then my breakthrough med is Opana 10mg 1-2 tablets every 8 hours. I called the pharmacy and they said I could put the patch in the location of my pain; so I placed the patch on my low back more on my left-hand side. I was curious if people who use this medication could help me out and let me know what to expect? I would like to know where I can put it where it will stay put and work better. I have only had it on for one day and it is already lifting and coming off, is that normal? Today I felt very nauseas and felt sick all day, and then threw up the food I tried to eat. I am not sure if I am feeling like this because of the patch or if it is from the process of weaning off the other medication? Or maybe it’s both?? Thank you for all of your help and any information or input on these medications and what I should expect would be great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8>
