Withdrawal from Fentanyl is a beast all by itself.  I was on it for a couple of years and I could not get my rx on time one time and it was awful.  I was just changed from Fentanyl to MsContin and felt no withdrawls at all... but if I were to stop the MsContin I would go into withdrawal... when you use one drug to get off another it prolongs the ending that was coming all along... there will be some withdrawl.  Fentanyl is very powerful and so MsContin... anyway you look at it.  Good Luck!

You need to speak with your doctor and please stop self medicating to put off w/d. And please please please do not make any more ivs or shots from patches. You are putting your life in danger. CALL YOUR DOCTOR AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!!! Come clean about what you are doing and get the help you need FROM A DOCTOR. Good luck and please take care of you!!!!
