So my doctor put me on Fentanyl patches, and Ive never been on any kind of medication like this before. I put it on my abdominal area, with tegaderm over it (suggested by pharmacist). Its been on for a couple hours, and I think I'm starting to feel better. How long does it usually take to feel the full effects? Does it last the whole 72 hours? Anything I can expect?
