A few months ago, in addition to 30 to 40 mgs of hydrocodone a day, I was prescribed the 25 mcg fenanyl patch to level out my pain. I hate it! I have terrible dreams, especially on the night before I change the patch. It also really spaces me out.
My question is.....how hard, now, is it to wean off of it and how do I do it? I am currently being considered for a spinal cord implant and I am hoping this will help me get off of opiods. I am 60 years old and I don't want to spend the rest of my life in a mental fog.
Anybody have any suggestions for me? I just can't deal with this drug! It seems to get worse the longer I am on it.......Weird, huh? Is it just me or has anyone else had these issues?
Thanks in advance for any advice you have to offer. I always benefit from it.
