Hi- I think the answer is...it may do both. It does work to replace the fent addiction but is addicting unto itself. The trick is to try it, make an after care plan for support, and then taper off of it.  Taking Sub should really be a short term plan. Most important would be to have the Sub administered by a trained physician.

I hope that helps. How long have you been taking fentanyl?

Is it 100-200 mg or mcg?

Oh man. Fentanyl is strong and if you are opening it and getting the liquid out that is not good. And 100-200 MCG is ALOT.

You need to stop. But you have to taper down on fentanyl to do it safely. And even then the wd's are tough

Honestly in this case I'm going to say you need to go to a clinic or rehab etc. Suboxone or monitored detox. Im not sure you can do this yourself.

Please give more info. I've seen this before. I know exactly what you are doing.  No judgement. Ever. Just want to help.

I was on fentanly for almost two years.  I never opened one, but wore the patch.  
What you are doing is extremely dangerous.  It is like playing Russian Roulette with your life.
People are dying every day for abusing fentanly.  Please tell someone and get help.  I do not think you will be able to do this on your own.  Chewing fentanly or abusing it is extremely dangerous
