Hi all. I normally post nowadays in the spinal cord implant forum but I would like some advise from you guys if you don't mind. I have weaned myself from 25 mcgs of fentayl (patch) to 12 mcgs. It wasn't awful but I just felt like I had the flu, mostly. I am now getting ready, after about 5 weeks on 12 mcgs, going to stop fentanyl altogether. I am still on other pain killers, primarily hydrocodone 10 mgs X 4 a day and have oxycontin that I have been prescribed in a lower dose to begin once I exhaust my hydrocodone prescription.
Has anyone followed a similar path and should going from 12 mcgs to none be worse than going from 25 mcgs to 12?????
Thanks for your help in advance! Kathy
