Hi everybody. I am on fentanyl patches right now 100mcg and I have read that some people may think you can get a bad batch of them where they just wont work. Is it true that that can happen? I think I have some bad ones. I was just upped to 100mcgs after being on the 75's...and I swear the 1oo;s aren't doing anything!!! I also take norco for pain...and usually i just need one for BT pain...well this morning i had extreme sciatic pain and took two norcos, after already having a patch on that i put on lastnight. The norco took the edge off...and usually it doesnt really do much cuz I know the patches are way stronger.
So my main question is, Is it really possible to get patches that dont work? Thanks so much! I am so happy I found spine-health message boards..you all seem very informative and supportive.
