I am having the same problems. I am under 100lbs and can't stop losing the weight. I have had all kinds of tests and nothing is wrong other then the patches. After reading all this I am going to get off the patch and try something else as I can't lose any more weight. I eat fatening foods and still loose the weight. Good luck and hope we all stop the weight loss and start to enjoy eating again

Dear Chelley, Karol, & anyone experiencing the same side effects,

I have been on the Fentanyl patch for about 2 years & am experiencing exactly the same symptoms.
I recently saw a surgeon who recommended that I get off the patch before surgery. My PVP agreed to wean me off. I was told about the horrific withdrawals & was very concerned until I read about Asorbic acid (found in Vitamin C) & how properly taken depending on Wright will help wash the Fentanyl drug out of your system faster causing withdrawals to be minimum.

I'm sorry I don't have the online address but if you Google it, you will find It.
Costco has a Kirkland powder form of Ascorbic Acid that is inexpensive & will work just fine.
I am going to start in 1 week & invite you to consider trying it.
Prayer doesn't hurt either

Requip (ropineral) works like a charm but you have to take it when you feel like restless leg is about to start. I get a strange feeling in my chest when it is about to start

I don't call it a problem. When I first started taking this drug-after others did not work, I was sick for a year. I crawled around furniture, and I lost my appetite for food PERIOD. I lost 87 pounds. I was 225 and 5 ft 8. I ate wheat crackers when I wanted 0. It finally stopped and steadied at 160. I have been that weight for about 3 years now.
My system will only let me take 25mg, which is not enough to control the pain, so I just have to bear the rest constantly.I had one of two bad hips replaced, but use a handicapped cart, and don't go to places there is none, for more than a few minutes. About an hour in a restaurant is all I can handle. Sitting and standing are both a problem for more than a few minutes standing. The Hips and back spurs cause this.. The Good hip lets me walk after a wheel chair stint, but just some. I am happy for that.
I too know when the patch is giving out because of twitching. I have no current memory because of a brain aneurysm (Stroke). And Though I mark a calendar, a forget to look at it.(And many other things)
Now I have kidney failure-caused by too much anesthetic,when my record ask for only a little. so no more surgery...and no stronger medication. (I tried two other popular brands of pills, and they cause even worse problems with sleep and creepy feelings)
So I am stuck with this 25 Mg- and the symptom, but the weight loss was needed and I am able to eat sweets, though I don't want a lot, for the first time since my 20's. I dieted all my life- losing 50 lbs twice. I still have a small appetite, and the person who did the sonogram that found my kidney's one dead and one at 25% was surprised at the small size of my stomach.I am 80- and of course know that something will take me before long-anyhow- so I drift on with what I have to. Glad of the weight loss and small appetite. A meal out- last me 3 meals...with the to go part. My cats eat well with what my finicky appetite does not want.

I have no insurance, so I have to purchase fake oxycodone pills on the street. They are definitely fentanyl. I have lost almost 100lbs. Hate to say it, but it’s the best thing to ever happen as a side effect. I do need to get off the pills soon before I end up a statistic. Very dangerous buying street drugs like that. Any one of those pills can easily contain a “hot spot” which will render it a fatal dose. It will be interesting to see what happens when I get off these pills.
