    I was prescribed this medication for break through pain of Rheumatoid Arthritis and I think it is a very good medication for this condition. I do feel that Dr.s need to monitor their pt.s better to see if they need an increase in medication due to becoming tolerant of the medication as well.

    pain so bad that was unale to walk or move around. after working out the doseage, was a great help in the pain but must be checked by Dr. every month. Doseage changed once. This was a last resort med. some would last about a year and than become tolerante to the med and have to change it. This so far has kept the worst pain down to a bareable level.

    After three back surgeries I was tolerant to almost everything. Fentora was wonderful at controlling my pain and I didn't feel high. The only two issues were that tolerance comes quickly and the cost. After I got up to 9,600 mcg/day (12 x 800mcg) within a year I decided I needed to get off these.
