5 patient evaluations for Watson Fentanyl Patch

Mar 4, 2014 (Started Jul 01, 2011)

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for chronic pain)
  • Side effects
    Mild (chronic constipation)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 200 mcg M,W,F
Advice & Tips: I've noticed with the fentanyl patch that I become accustomed to the dose rather quickly. I don't know whether it's my overall tolerance to narcotic pain relievers or what, but every time my doctor increases my patch dosage, the relief seems very short-lived; I'm talking within a couple weeks, it seems like it's no longer helping as it should.
