Hi Judy. I think that Duragesic is probably one of the better formulations if you're taking opioids long-term. It's very smooth, and fentanyl is supposed to have fewer side effects than other opioids. How are you tolerating it -- any side effects? What dose are you on?

> I'm amazed at how ignorant some (most?) pdocs are when it comes to narcotics, I hope your buprenorphine is helping.

It certainly is, and I've been taking it on a regular basis for nearly a year now (I was using it intermittently before I started taking it daily).

I agree, pdocs sure aren't educated enough about opioids, which I think are a valuable tool for mood and anxiety disorders that haven't responded adequately to more conventional treatments.

What symptom(s) did you have that were only relieved by fentanyl?

> Take care, Judy

You too. :-)
