Thank you for your input. I do already have quite an intolerance to the duragesic...staying in bed/lying down is the only time I can really feel it's working. The first patch I wore(this is the lowest dose-25mcg), I felt the respitory depression, but since then, this has not been a problem. I weigh only 106 lbs, and wouldn't risk going to a higher dose, as the other side effects are already bowling me over!
I hope the MSContin starts kicking in and giving you relief soon.
I am glad you have been writing in, I always enjoy reading your postings.
