Oxycodone Vs Fentanyl Withdrawals
I have just switched from oxycodone to fentanyl patches. I will be withdrawing from them following sugery. any suggestions as to which is easier to withdraw from? Thanks!!! ## Well, the Fentanyl is actually much stronger than the Oxycodone, a 0.025mg dosage of it is equal to 5mgs of Oxycodone, so it is going to be the harder one to withdraw from, if it is stopped abruptly. However, the other fact of relevance is how long you will be using it. If it is only for a short period of time, them the withdrawals may not be too rough, though they may still be annoying. Has your doctor provided you with any advice? ## i have been on fentanyl for a long time. prior to this was on a bunch of oxycodone. to give you an idea i was taking anywhere to 3 or 4 of the 80s per day and 5 or 6 of the Roxi 30s...

Watson is now actavis generic percocet 5/325 what is up with this
I had been taking 5/325 generic Watson percocet for 4 years. Suddenly I get notified by Walgreens which I have insurance that there is no more Watson brand and I was given generic percocet 5/325 by Actavis. It is not the same at all. It has no pain relief for me. I used to break the watsons in half sometimes and never had a funny taste. I just broke one of the actavis white tablets in half and it immediately tasted like salt or alka seltzer? Has anyone had any issues with this drug too. Also, along with it not working right it has made my GI tract and stomach so ill feeling and cramping. This is not right how can they take away a medicine that someone has been on for 4 years without any problems and tell them to suddenly switch. Would a peson who has been on a certain heart medication f...

Ketamine for Depression?
This thread is an offshoot of a related one that discussed Scopolamine as a treatment for depression. /Discuss/is-anybody-being-prescribed-scopolamine-for-depression-209022_s2.htm It was recommended by the members of that thread that one be started that directly relates to ketamine and it's use to treat depression.

endocet vs oxycodone
I HAVE BEEN ON OXYCODONE FOR OVER 2 YEARS AND MY DRUG STORE RAN OUT AND GAVE ME ENDOCET ?SAID IT WAS THE SAME THING BUT MY BODY TELLS ME THAT IT'S NOT THE SAME.HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH THIS CHANGE? ## in reply to jim, i have to agree, i have been taking oxycodone for a while now, and got a new script for endocet, and it does not do anywhere near as much as the last prescription did... ## Well, I am not sure what you were on previously, since you just say Oxycodone, but Endocet is a combination drug containing both Acetaminophen and Oxycodone. The reason you may be having a problem, however, is due to the fact that generic meds ARE allowed, by law, to differ from name brands by as much as PLUS OR MINUS 20%. They also DO NOT HAVE TO BE EXACTLY IDENTICAL. I know the doctor...

what exactly does suboxone do? is it addicitive?
i have a friend who desperately wants to get off of methadone and pain pills. will suboxone work? is it addicitive too? if someone can please help me that would be great! also is it very expensive, that's what i've heard. ## Well, first off, yes, it can be addictive as well, however, it has distince advantages over narcotic meds, Benzos, and even Methadone. Suboxone works on many of the same receptors, since it is a narcotic agent, however, it does not give the same high effect and euphoria that most addicts enjoyed, which is what made them get addicted in the first place. It also contains an opiate neutralizer, so it neutralizes anything in your system from the other drugs you were using, and of course prevents someone from continuing to use while they are on it. Most people wh...

Mandated oxycodone withdrawl
I must of posted my problem somewhere else on this site, sorry but I can not think straight. For 6 years I have taken oxy's for RSD. Something I never heard of in my life until after 4 surgeries, including titanium cage, in a period of less than 2 years I developed firery burning sensation in right thigh. The edema made my legs look like tree trunks. Nothing could touch that leg. Being a female I was able to switch to wearing skirts and sleeping with blankets held up with a contraption. No matter how much Vicodin or hydrcodone I was given nothing touched the pain. When, for those of you who can remember, I became like Linda Blair in the Exorcist, screaming I was on fire and feeling like my head was spinning around. I was taken to psychotherapist ( Dr's who study pain for additio...

caraco 187 oxycodone is this oxycotin
I would like to know if this is oxycotin Caraco 187? ## No, that is a regular release Oxycodone tablet, so a generic for Roxicodone, this one contains 15mgs, to be precise. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

zubsolv
Im thinking of switching from strips to zubsolv next month because I have no insurance is there anyone whos switched and liked it? ## It is the same, just under a different formulation and brand name, so it should work the same. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there a big price difference?

taking subutex and percocet together
My doctor just put me on subutex along with percocet. I've been on percocet for yrs for severe and chronic migraines. He told me to take the subutex and if it doesn't work to take a perc. I take 15mg percs at a time. I've read some stuff online that worries me. Some people say if you take percs with subutex you'll go into withdrawals. I went through severe withdrawals with fioricet months ago and I don't want to go through that hell again. I took my first subutex about an hour ago and I still have a migraine so I want to take a perc now. Can I do that or will I get sick? ## I have been taking subutex for the last month or so. about 2 weeks ago i had a terrible migraine, so I took a 10mg percocet. I went into full withdrawal. Throwing up constantly, nausea, still had ...

methadone dr chronic pain lowell ma area
After 10+'years new Dr. stopped methadone and break thru Meds. for no reason, nor would give me one. Thankfully I try to take as little as needed.So I still didn't have a great time withdrawing, not fun at all. At 57 with a rare autoimmune disease that causes blood clots+ had first stroke at 36. Second at 50. Plus A-Fib. and many other related issues. No suggestions,no referral and honestly took anything other than he prescribed. So he has blacklisted me in two states, and I truly don't know why. And when I asked, he yelled one more word and I'll have you throw out. So now Constance pain, feel totally lost and WHAT about Quality of Life. And do no harm. Just want a true honest doctor, that also believes in Quality of a human beings life. Live in NH banned and also MA. Do...

Tolerance Level
I was prescribed 15 mg oxycontin 3x per day along with 10 mg oxycodone up to 3x per day. I didn't seem to need to oxycodone at first but a week later I find myself taking it all 3 times. Could I have become tolerant to the 15mg oxycontin already? ## I doubt you've developed a tolerance that fast, but your body may have gotten more used to it, so the affect isn't as pronounced as it first was. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Are there any other questions or concerns?
