Hello again everyone,

As some of you know, I'm experiencing pain now that I simply can no longer bear. I haven't taken painkillers because they make me sick.  Can those who've had experience with pain pops (and what do you call them again?) can you tell me if you have some control over the dosage by either finishing or not finishing the pop?  Does it make you constipated? Dizzy? Nauseus?  Put you to sleep? Control pain?  Any coments are appreciated.  I'm at the end of my rope here and can't continue like this. Thanks in advance.

Since I don't have any personal experience with Fentanyl pops, I can't answer any of your questions.  The link below may give you some answers.

I used dialed.  It controlled the pain well.  No nausea, no sleepy.  Like u I drink a lot of water and controlled my intake.  So no constipation for me.  Stool softness offer gentle relief. U will feel much better once the pain is under control?machine spell checker will not let me spell the medication properly.  Sorry.  There is a u where the e is, and still the spelling is wrong, I think.

Yes, you control how much if you don't finish the pop.  They are like hard lollipops and you just keep them in your mouth.  My bowels were irratic.  Going between constipation and diarrhea, so do not know if they would constipate or not.  Did not make me dizzy.  I took  hydro condone when I really needed to, but like you, the pain was incredible and the doctor added the pain pops (I'll see if I can find out what they are actually called.). They are a slow continuous pain release that helped me keep from being in total agony.  Pooping razor blades is not easy.....hugs, Lori
