I think you are saying that you posted a comment to me, with more explanation some where else? I've looked and thus far I can't locate it
I'll keep searching and look forward to hearing from you upon your return from San Fran.

Hello and Welcome,
I am sorry to learn about your unrelenting pain. I caution you to be careful about the additional opiates you are taking with Fentanyl Transdermal Patch.. Be sure you take only what your physician has prescribed. Fentanyl is a very potent opiate.
That said, it may take up to 24 hours before the Fentanyl Patch is fully effective. If I am reading your post correctly you reached that 24 hours on Sunday morning at 11AM. It may be just taking a bit longer to be effective.
I assume you read the directions well and your skin was clean and dry where you applied the patch. Where did you place it?
I have been prescribed the Fentanyl Patch in the past. Due to allergy issues I couldn't continue it so I have little personal experience. My dose was much lower than yours but I did not note any pain decrease while wearing it. That was thought to be due to the low dose however that wouldn't seem to be the case with you. 100mcg is not a low dose.
I won't quote all the facts on Fentanyl that are available in the literate you received with the medication. I will encourage you to contact your prescribing physician. Tell him/her what you have told us. He/she will have the best answers for you. It is possible you may require an adjustment in the dosage.
Don't give up on Fentanyl yet, it's early. Our systems are all different and yours may just be requiring a bit more time. I do admit it should be effective after 24 hours by all accounts. Please contact your physician.
Please keep us posted and tell us how you are doing. I'll look forward to your responses and updates.
Best of Luck to You,
