My doctor switched me from the Fentanyl patch to OxyContin for my ER medication. I've never tried OxyContin. I am on oxycodone for breakthrough. Has anyone been on these meds and preferred the OxyContin? We switched because I've been on the patch for over 2 years, which always seemed to work, but hasn't been working as well lately. Plus, they have found more damage unfortunately.
