Comment:
Had lumbar facet injections past week; doctor used Fentanyl as an anesthetic. Broke out in severe rash/itching, which has lasted for over a week. Extremely distressful. Medication to stop this is also very scary; i.e., Prednisone and Hydroxyzine. Will NEVER have them use this on me again...not worth the hell I've gone through this past week!

Comment:
After being given this medication while in the hospital I have been experiencing severe muscle pain (not associated with my illness) irregular heartbeats, overactive nervous system and trouble seeing. I would not reccomend this medication to anyone who has trouble with pain medications not working right for them.
