Can I Take My Fentanyl Patch Off, I Am Having Weird Feelings?

I am having a crazy headache. I am slow and having really sleepy times that seem strange. It feels like I am in a trance or something. Should I just remove it to be safe? I can always put another one on later. This one maybe leaking or something. I am very nauseated at times with the headache.

Answer

I think I would remove it. You don't want to take a chance on accidently overdosing. If you've been using this same strength of fentanyl patch for awhile with no problems, it may be that this particular patch is defective. If you've just started using the patch or have just increased the dosage, you'll need to talk to your doctor about the symptoms you're experiencing.
