Couldn't find what you looking for?


My father in law is 86 years old and is having severe pain in his back and legs. Cannot even walk without a walker. Someone was telling me about morphine patches. Do you think this would be an option he should talk to his doctor about?

Thank you so much, Betty


Hi, I have been taking/using the Fentanyl Patch 50mgu/72 hours, for quite some timenow !

They do have their side effects, mainly sleep related and the skin crawling for me ! I have had my sleep patterns quite disturbed...I hope he does not drive still as they make you very drowsey ! The skin crawling is also very uncomfortable...They do work though and would recommend that your father talks to the Doctor as a possibility for his pain relief.
