duragesic patch

I am in the pharmacy program that pays for my patched until i get my DSS and I cannot find the brandname anywhere due to the new DEA guidelines on sched 2 narcotics. Any ideas? none of the pharmacies in my county or surrounding counties have the name brand and I can't afford to buy my own generic right now.Does anyone know of a generic equivalent patch that the drug company will give me for free?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Duragesic or fentanyl patches. The generic version will be less expensive than the branded formats. The other pain killers would be hydrocodone, oxycodone to name a few. But as these are controlled medications, you will need to consult your doctor for a prescription.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
