Fentanyl

My doctor prescribed Fentanyl for my pain management so that I don't have to keep taking Vicodin every 4 hours. The Fentanyl is a dermal patch that is supposed to be good for 72 hours. So far, I'm not too impressed. I put it on at 1:00pm today and ended up having to take a Vicodin at 6:00. Hopefully there is an adjustment period or something. I like the idea of not having to keep popping the pills, but other than generally feeling like crap today, it's tough to say how effective it is so far. Time will tell.
