Patches for pain?
Jan 28, 2000

Hi you mention in in one of your replies for pain patches, could you please describe them further to me? what are they ? and where can I get them?


Response from Dr. Feinberg

The patches contain a narcotic called fentanyl, which is released slowly across the skin and maintains constant levels of painkiller in the blood after the first 24 hours. They must be prescribed by a doctor.
