Hello 🌹
Im on fentanyl patches... 😶so it takes about 8hrs until a pain patch is fully into the system at that dose! 🤔If u r unsure... read the leaflet in the box... or google ur above question 🤗 ...or even google the patch name and go to the makers website 🌹
What patches do u have SB?

Glad u sorted it out SB ⚘...I was on BUNORPHRAPINE patches for a while...🐪 they werent much ☔cop for me...🐫 as i powered up the dosage rather fast 🐴and ended up on fentanyl patches. 🤔But patches were always much much better than oral meds. 😁Bunorphrapine 👍is a good drug tho...🤗 so it will kick right in soon sweetie 🌹

I've never used morphine patches because I'm allergic to morphine. I'm on Fentanyl patches post op, and I think they work rather well.
