There are many other meds available at much lower doses. Fentanyl
is approx 88 times stronger than morphine
. I am just bewildered as to
why he would start with 50mcg, maybe it was a mistake.
The advice above is very good. Especially in the summer, you need to watch that the patch stays on, because they fall off and then you have to make sure that your mother doesn't get overheated, because the medicine can be released at a much faster rate...
