Hi. I just got back from trying to fill my new scropt for pain meds. I am currently on Fentanyl 100 mcg every 3 days and 30 mg of oxycodone for bt. I went to pain Dr as my current pain meds are not working and we dicussed changing to Opana ER 40 mg 2x a day and Opana IR 5 mg every 6 hours or as needed.
Imagine my surprise at the cost. The extended relief was 1500.00 per month and the IR was 500.oo per month. Has anyone switched from fentanyl to something else and can tell me what to do? I cant afford that per month. I have a 5000.00 ded for my health insurance.
