I have no quality of life but for now I have to live until my mother dies. She is 70. I have a stash of fentanyl patches in various doses up to 100 mcg/hour. These were prescribed in 2014. They are generic, not the gel based type. Right now my tolerance is close to zero. Do these old patches have a shelf life? Would this plus maybe alcohol or benzodiazepines be the way to go? I stopped using them originally because I ended up on a ventilator from accidental overdose. Funny they didn’t take off the patches or try narcan at the emergency room of a major metropolitan hospital. Anyway, I want to feel like I have my “out” for someday. Had enough.
