Fentalyn Patch reaction?

I started using a Fentalyn patch on 8/9/2008. Since that time, I started experiencing stomach upset problems. My pharmacist mentioned that since I also take Mobic, that perhaps the two together were causing the problme. I'm thinking of stopping the Mobic to see what happens. Has anyone else had this happen?


  • I tried have Mobic and like aleve & Indocin(Nsaids) my stomach really hurt after a few months.Are you eating before taking?

    Never had those patches but they could cause stomach upset as well being opiate based.Your plan sounds good, tell your doctor of course, process of elimination should help.
  • I am also on Fantanyl patches - 150mcg and I was on the loo for 2.5hrs this morning, the doc had upped my dose by 50mcg and I wondered if that was the cause. Its a catch-22 situation though as I need the higher dose to try and ease my pain levels which are still an 8 on the higher dose

    Hope you are feeling better soon

  • ok, today arm was itchy, thought it was the surgical tape I had used to keep patches on as they wouldnt stick.

    Husband takes the patches off to find my skin had ulcerated underneath the patches - ouch it hurt when they were removed, so Im on Gabapentin, Diclofenac and Ibruprofen for my pain, instead of those plus 150mcg Fentanyl Patch (durogesic).

    Me want to be more free of pain than I am as I just want some good quality sleep, not 20mins here, 40mins there.

    Sorry for the moan

  • I just started the patch today. Mine i wear for 72 hrs. I've only had it on for 11 hours. Have noticed I am a little itchy.

    I cant tell if it is from that or partial withdrawls from my hydroco. I had RF done 1 week ago and have been pretty medicated because pain is so severe. Doc finally caved and put me on patch because i complain about being so loopy.

    I hate that feeling...I have kids to raise and I can't be in lala land. I want pain releif without that loopy feeling and he says this should solve that problem.

    I hope he is right. Good luck to all you guys finding pain releif!!
