Pain meds

Hi everyone I have been on 400mg of tramadol for pain over a few years, as things were getting worse the doc changed me to fentanyl patches 50mcg, but after 24hrs I was sick and could not even keep down fluids, this lasted three days even after I took the patch off, I tryed this a few times but always this terrible sickness , now back on 800mg tramadol ,the doc has also given me some 12mcg fentanyl patches to try ,but so far I am to scared to try them ,but the tramadol it's self is not enough to help much with the pain, any ideas I would appreciate .

Hi Jacqui, sorry to hear of your struggle.Maybe you will be able to tolerate the lower dose of fentanyl better, Sometimes a mix of 2 meds works better, I may be getting fentanyl but it alters thyroid levels and I am on meds for overactive thyroid so jurynis out, As this forum is mainly about restless legs you will probably be better postingnon healthunlcked pain concern whete you are likely to get better advice.I am a member on thete and many discussions about pain relief, Good lucj ...kim x
