I started using the Fentanyl Patch about 2 years ago for chronic fibromyalgia pain. When I first started them I read the common side effects on the paper the Pharmacy put in the bag. About six months ago when I went to pick up my prescription, The Pharmacist alerted me to the fact that I should never use a heating pad, electric blanket or use a heated water bed, due to the fact that it will cause the fentanyl medicine to absorb to fast into my blood stream and could cause a overdose or death. Thank God I had never done any of those things.
When I first started using the patches I thought it was an answer to Prayer, a miracle because the patch helped my pain so much. You would have thought I was a FentanylPflaster online kaufen representative for a pharmaceutical company, I told everybody about them and how much they relieved my pain. OK so by now your probably wondering why I am telling you all this. About 3 months ago I started having problems urinating, I sometimes sat on the toilet for 15 minutes before I could start urinating. I started having to put my hand under cold running water so I could start. I also had another side effect that really irritated me, my legs would jerk and with no warning. I suspected that it might be the patches because prior to using them I had never had these symptoms before. I called my Doctor, asked her if the patches could be causing these side effects? I have other medications that I am taking but the Doctor told me it was most likely the patches. So I was gradually weened off them, Once I got from 75 mcg down to 25 mcg I started peeing right away with no hesitation and My legs have stopped jerking. Everyone is different and not everyone will experience these side effects, so if you are using them or prescribed Fentanyl Patches just beware of new side effects you did not have before.
