Brief Answer: Possible side effects of wearing Duragesic patches Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX I have gone through your query and understood your concerns. With such presentations in my clinic, I would first rule out the side effects of Duragesic 100 patches. This is an opioid drug containing Fentanyl as the active ingredient. Dry mouth at the point of can't stop drinking and feeling dull and no energy are among side effects of long-term use of Duragesic 100 patches. I suggest to discuss further with your doctor to stop wearing Duragesic patches for a while until improvement. Meanwhile, your doctor will prescribe other alternatives suitable to your case. Hope it was of help! Dr.Bardha
