shipping Duragesic yet?

Does anyone know if shipment ofDuragesic Fetanyl patches has resumed?  Our HMO is out and generic Fetanyl causes severe breathing problems.

Hi Poohgyrr,

Sorry I do not know the answer to your question. You might want to talk to your pharmacist. They are usually up on what is happening with the different manufacturers.

Take Care,

Last I heard, in this area, at my pharmacy, there was no known date when the Duragesic patch would be available.  That was a few weeks ago.  I actually came off the Fentanyl due to that as I have trouble with the generic as well.

Thanks.  And yes the pharmacist advised both us and our Physician about this.  Our subsequent discussions involved several people & Departments at KP, with conflicting answers.  Bottom line is it's not available.  Another forum posted shipping has resumed for some patches; I haven't verified that.  

It is not just what they said in response to our questions.  It is also what they did not say.  Obviously something is being withheld and that bothers me.  Life is not boring....

If my memory serves me, Duragestic has a history if problems with their patches.
