    After 2 years on the 100's I'm now on 75's, (for three days now) the pain has not increased. I'll stay with the 75's for 15 days (this is how many patches I have) and see what happens. At that time I'll drop to the 50's. My doc knows this is what I want to do and he is okay about it as long as I contact him if I should have withdrawals. Thanks for the concern.
