7.5 ug oral Pharms - Fentanyl (patch)
My friend recently acquired 2 boxes of 75mcg fentanyl patches prescribed for his father whom used to have severe back pain. I, curious in the experience, bought 1 patch from my friend for 20$ and tried chewing approximately 1/20th of it the first night I got it. That first night, the only effects were mild euphoria, a sort of loopiness and a general numbing.

Last night I decided to up the dose and chewed on approximately 1/10 of the patch cut off using scissors. I began chewing the patch and noticed the effects begin to kick in 10 minutes after I began chewing. After approxiamtely 30-45min of chewing I felt very stoned. I could barely read the websites I was surfing and when I stood up to walk, I had extreme trouble with my coordination similar to about 8 drinks of alcohol.

I layed down and began to watch tv. After about 5 minutes of that, I realized that I wasn't breathing. Knowing that respiratory depression was a possible side effect of opiates I immediately spit out the patch that I was chewing on and forced myself to stay awake for fear of falling asleep and not waking up. For 20 minutes I had to consciously remind myself to inhale. After that I began breathing regularly again and felt comfortable enough to try to sleep, I drifted off into a half awake, half asleep lucid dreaming state which was quite unique for me, and I've tried nearly every hallucinogen and never had such an experience.

I ended up waking up 2 hours later and making my way from the couch to my bed where I enjoyed a nice long sleep. This fentanyl is a highly addictive drug though, and ever since I first took it, I've been looking forward to taking it every night all throughout the day. Part of me can't wait to finish this patch and never look back again.
