    Yeah Man, I've been having to take opiate's for about 6 years now, due to overworking my body and self when I was younger, but anyway, the doctor has put me on a medicine used for people withopioid tolerance called fentanyl trasdermic pathches and the best part about them I feel, is the fact that the medicine being assigned by the patch and skin's ability(absorption rate) to intake last for 72 or at least up to 72 hours. The patch is called the duragesic patch and is expensive but so far My experience with the patch and my cronic back pain has been some what more peasurable in life, more time to enjoy and less to hurt. Have a good life and just a reminder these paches are strong with fentanyly and could be dangerous if not properly managed with as far as kids and pets go even aftr used just some food for thought good day.

    I don't understand why you would think it necessary to make that last
    post. I am assuming that perhaps you have attempted to use
    fentanyl recreationally and were disappointed by the results, or
    perhaps that you just like to hear yourself speak. Either way,
    making a comment like that without giving any reason or explanation
    isn't helping to answer this question, and I fail to see why you would
    think it worthwhile to throw it into the discussion.



    Anyway, that said, fentanyl patches can be a very good option for
    people legitimately looking for help with chronic pain. Fentanyl
    is among the most powerful opioids known, so the patches come in many
    different strengths, depending on how much tolerance a person
    has... The fact that the medicine in one patch is enough to last
    three days has led to a number of overdoses from people attempting to
    use duragesic recreationally. It's really unfortunate, because
    this sort of thing makes duragesic difficult to obtain even for those
    in most legitimate need of pain relief.



    Fentanyl is also available in Actiq, which is essentially a lollipop
    containing a small amount of fentanyl. It's not XR, so it's used
    for breakthrough pain PRN...
