I.V. vs patch

I just wanted to say something in reference to the I.V. fentanyl. When it is given by I.V it is rapidly delivered at whatever dose they give you all at once and I was told that it was used for sedation purposes. With a patch the fentanly is absorbed through the skin a lot slower which is why you change the patch every 72 or every 48 hours depending on the amount of pain you have. I did notice some sleepiness the first week when I first started the Duragesic patch.

Also in reference to the lower dose patch of Duragesic, I did notice that it is 12mcg not 12.5mcg as I and someone else stated before. On the website that I found however, it said that it delivers 12.5mcg per hour so I'm a little confused by that. Anyway I hope this helps.
