Well, if you are on a transdermal system, I'm going to assume (yes I know) that it is fentanyl (aka duragesic) morphine and fentanyl are in the same drug class but are different drugs with different delivery systems. With the patch, you will get a consistent dose all the time and should change the patch as directed.....so actually there is no correct answer for your question as those drugs are actually different.
