Please let me know if there is anyone on here who must use opiate-type pain meds familiar with the Duragesic (fentanyl) patch?

What is your ? Duragesic is a skin patch that contains fentanyl, a very powerful opioid that is chemically unrelated to morphine, Codeine etc., but is highly potent. The patch releases a certain amount of fentanyl over the course of 72 hours. They start at 25 mcg per hour and go up to 200 mcg per hour. They are best in people who cannot tolerate oral drugs because of nausea and vomiting, and are for severe pain.
