Sorry it took so long for me to answer you.
My husband is a truck driver & he's home, so I've been busy.
I was on the Fentanyl patch for 2 months.
25mcg & the 75 mcg.
I took off my patch for good on March 11th.
It was 2 weeks before i felt alive again.
I still have some syptoms, but RLS is gone, & my sleep is much improved.
The only thing that is left is the tiredness & lack of energy, but it's NOTHING like is was!
You can do this. Just know it might take a little while longer.
Fentanyl just about killed me & I was only on it 2 months.
I can promise you this: I might have to take something when I'm older for pain, but it won't be Fentanyl!
I've had 2 cervical surgeries & have a bad back.
So I know how you feel
Good luck & God Bless!
