In brief: Opiod use
Duragesic (fentanyl) is a very potent narcotic.
You need one on one help to wean off these meds. Get advice from your pcp. Good luck.

In brief: Yes
The medications should be weaned off rather than stopped suddenly.
Add up the total daily dose of medication and decrease the total amount by 10% every 5 days.
