People just need to realize that being on a 25ug/hr PATCH
is still being on a pretty decent dose
of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>FENTANYL</span>
.....or opioid, for that matter. As far as FENTANYL
being like morphine, they are alike in their affinities to the mu opioid receptor and that is basically it. FENTANYL
is metabolized into an inactive metabolite (norFENTANYL
) where as morphine is metabolized into one active (m6g) and one inactive (m3g) metabolite. And, heroin is metabolized into morphine.
