Question: i suffer from chronic pancreatitis and my doctor just raised my fentynal patches to 100. I still have 75 left and some other 25 from before that. Can I use the 75 and 25 till they are gone first and then go to the 100 or is there a difference tween using a 75 and 25 or a 100. I want to make sure two patches won't be an issue. I usually have a few extra from hospital stays and I use case one falls off so I would like to keep a few 100s spare if the 75 and 25 would be okay. thank you

If your doctor has raised the fentanyl strength to 100 then you can use 75 and 25 till the stocks are gone and then continue with 100. No issues with that.
