norspan to fentanyl patch
11 Replies RSS
hi ive been on a norspan patch (15mg) for some months. methadone tablets before that for some yrs post lower back fusion, S1-L5 in 2003. the norspan patch has not covered the pain control so my specialist ordered an MRI and now I have a protruding disc at L4. this was to be expected I was told due to the extra workload on my lower back. I have been given the fentanyl patch and told that it will be increasing next visit but I was not told to just stop the norspan or ween off slowly? Due to constant itching on the norspan Im coming off at 5mg/week anyway but not sure if now I should just take patch off and be done with it? I do not want to if possible go thru to many withdrawal symptoms? Thanks for any answers ## I am in a similar situation. Have been taking norspan 20mg for over 12 month...

fentanyl patch withdrawal symptoms and duration
155 Replies RSS
i have post sirgical lower back pain. was in 50 mcg pat. ch and had side effects ans so decided to wean off. i finished with the 12 mcg patch a week ago and am still suffering from peroidic nausea, irritability, daily joint and muscle pain, but the worst is the consistant restless leggs. it is driving me crazy. my doctor says that is not withdrawal. is he right? i don't think so. if it is withdrawal, what can i do about it and how long will it last? i am going crazy. ## Of course it can be from the withdrawal, your doctor might be surprised if he talked to some former addicts and learned the various things they suffered, when withdrawing from their drug of choice and you don't have to be abusing a medication for such things to happen.

does anyone take fentanyl patch and it burns my arm
4 Replies RSS
My Fentanyl patch burns my arm and makes my arm and fingers hurt terribly. I put it on my back and the pain was so bad I ended up at the hospital. When I took a breath my left side hurt so bad I could only take little breaths - Did anyone else have this problem? My doc said it is the adhesive I put over the patch, otherwise the fentanyl patch falls off in 1 day. ## Hello, Timster! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. That seems very odd, even for using extra adhesive to hold it on. Have you tried consulting another doctor and getting a second opinion? What did the hospital attribute the problem to? The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, ...

How Long Does Fentanyl Stay In Your System
2 Replies RSS
I have had a prescription for the fentanyl patches for servere back pain 25mcg/hr, I also take xodol 10-300 mg. The patch was so much trouble to use ( not staying stuck ) I stopped using them a few months ago. But recently the pain got so bad I decided to use a few that I had left over. Not thinking about them I had a routine urine test in my doctors office. Well the fetanyl showed up. The doctor understood that it was an unintenttional error on my part since I didn't have a current prescription for them. I thought since they were prescribed to me that I could still use them. Which I found out I couldn't. He told me if it happened again he could no longer treat me. I know now that I can not use them ( in fact I threw them away) if I don't have a current prescription but was ...

Can fentanyl be detected in a 12 panel rapid urine drug test? I am referring to the dip stick test, that's not sent to a lab! It's done right there in the bathroom with a dip stick!

how long does fentanyl patch stay in urine

does fentanyl show up in urine and if so how long after stopping does it show up ## Yes, Fentanyl is an opiate and will show up in your urine as such. Once you stop using them, narcotics are usually detectable in a urine test for up to 72 hours, though this can vary, depending on the dosage and length of time you've been using it. However, if you have a prescription, there is no need to worry, you simply need to tell them, when you go in for the test. Are there any comments or questions? ## Fentanyl is one of the fastest acting drugs due to it's administration routes, and the nature of the med. As a result, it's also one of the fastest to move through your body. Fast in and fast out. ## Does the fast in fast our include urine specifically being checked for fentanyl such as t...

Fentanyl Transdermal Patches

I've been using the 100mcg/hr of Fentanyl Patches and I've been using them for a long time. They stick well and they last almost 3 days and I'm prescrbed every 2 days, so I get extra relief by putting the new one on @48 hrs with the first one stil on; and I take 100mg of roxicodone, but the pain still is killing me and I've looked on the internet at the Patch by Par drugs, has anyone used this brand and would you give me a critique on them; how long do they last? do they stay on well?? I get my script of 9 boxes Monday and I need to make a decesion thanks, lakebum ## HI, Can anyone tell me all the manufactures of Fentanyl with the resovoir gel?

Been on fentenyl for yrs for back pain, want off.
2 Replies RSS
If I'm on 150 every 72 hrs and want to get totally off by next dr appt on my own safely... Can I step down by 25mg every 3 days without causing major withdrawal. Feel like I'm seeing a drug pusher. Had hips replaced and back surgery and ddd and lupus and just keep getting put on medicines. Can I do this and get off safely by my next appt sept 10? ## Hi Gigi! I would suggest tapering VERY slowly. It might be best to speak with your doctor and taper under his supervision so you don't have bad withdrawals. ## Hello, Gigi! How are you? I have to agree with Cats68 here. (And a huge thank you to Cats68!) Fentanyl is a very potent narcotic, over 80 times stronger than Morphine, so too rapid of a taper could be very dangerous. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analges...

Can You Cut The Fentanyl Patch In Half
13 Replies RSS
I asked my doctor the same question yesterday, she said "no", because once it hits the air, the strength starts to dissipate, or weaken. So she put me on the lowest dose, as I hope to get off them and all meds eventually. ## No, you can't cut it in half and the reason for it is because it is time released and cutting the patch could cause you to get too much of the medication at once, which may result in a dangerous overdose. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Are there any other questions or comments? ## What about the new style without the gel. You know like the nicotine patches Can you cut those ones half? and just cut your dose.. thanks.. Dave ## I have been using the Mylan matrix (non-gel) patches for some time now and have had no problems with cutting them. I remove 1/6...

Shortage in Package
3 Replies RSS
I think I had a shortage in my box this month of fentanyl patches. Usually there are 5 per box. I started to change my patch this evening and I only had two in the package. There should had been 3. This is one of the few times that I didn't count my patches upon opening the box. I have a routine in the evenings when it is time for the change of the patch. So my husband and I spent time trying to construct my procedures for the last couple of changes trying to see if there was a possibility that I dropped one in the floor and it slid under something. Has anyone else had a problem with shortage of patches in your boxes? ## I have been on fentyal pain patches I have constant pain the first month I had the 25mg now second month he put me on 50 mg this time there is a shortage I'm mi...

Will Fentanyl Patch Show Up As Morphine In A Drug Test
54 Replies RSS
will fentynal show up as morphine on a drug test i need to know if it will ## I am assuming you're talking about the fentanyl patch, is it a urine test or a blood test? I am on methadone and I have to give 2 urine samples a week..fentanyl doesn't even show up as an opiate in my urine when I have relapsed. I have sucked on a piece of a 100 mcg patch (NEVER do THIS it's extremely dangerous)..I have used the patch as prescribed amd it doesn't show in urine tests. ## Yes, on a test that looks for the specific drug, rather than just the presence of opiates, it should be detected as Fentanyl and its metabolites and not anything else. However, if the test being done is a non-certified one, then there is always the possibility of getting a false positive for something else, sinc...

is it okay to chew a fentanyl 50mg pain patch
507 Replies RSS
ive been given fentanyl 50mg pain patches an i was just wondering if its okay to cut one in half an chew on it? ## I would say definitely NOT - The Fentanyl transdermal patch is supposed to be absorbed by the body gradually. If you were to chew on it you would be taking a very dangerous risk - this is a very strong medication! Chewing on it would essentially release 3 days worth of of a narcotic into your body which is more powerful than morphine! Please post back with any other thoughts you have about this and please be safe! ## Obviously, chewing the patch is unsafe, but again...people are going to chew them. You can chew em as long as you take only small portions at a time. Just moderate yourself and don't overdue it. ## Keep in mind that fentanyl patches are close to 80 TIMES mo...

will fentanyl show up in a urine serum test
Post a Reply
I was wearing my Fentanyl patch 100mcg on the day of the test and was changing every 48 hours and had no gaps in therapy of the patch. Was on oxycodone 10mg for breakthrough pain and neither showed up on a urine serum test. I couldn't pee at the office, so was sent to the hospital. The drugs that showed up were my anxiety meds. And it says my fentanyl and oxycodone were not. I took a tablet that morning before the office visit and was wearing my damned patch. But I got a letter telling me that I can no longer be seen at my pain mgmt office anymore and that was that. One more thing, I take for chronic pain from an accident. A year before the accident I had gastric bypass surgery, could that affect my results in any drug test?

Does a fentanyl patch go bad ?
2 Replies RSS
I found a fentanyl patch in the closet that's probably 3 months old , it wasnt ever used but it's out of its packaging . Can I still use it ? ## Hello Hunter, Yes like all medications they have an expiration date. I'm looking right now at some old 100mcg/hr for 72 hours that I use to use. I got them from the pharmacy about 6 months ago and their expiration date is Aug. 2016 So that would be about a 1 year and 8 months expiration since it was dispensed. As long as the backing hasn't been removed it should be OK and stick to the skin. Be sure to apply it where you have the most fat tissue for best absorption. DO NOT try and ingest any part of the patch's active ingredient. It can cause an overdose! The total amount of Fentanyl in the 100mcg/hr patch is 11mg total and t...

There seams to be an unbelievable amount of misinformation going about Drug take about 12 hours to get into your system.a 25 patch is a relative low dose. If you are having all sorts if problems without it, for god sake call your dr. Patches usually have about 4 days worth drugs . If you are running out leave patch on for 4 days, and then you have 12 hours in you body that hasn't gotten to your blood system I have on a 100 patch and get a percocet every 4 hours: muscle relaxer and another pain medication every 8 hours, ## If you are having withdrawal symptoms after taking off a 12.5 patch, see a mental health specialist.

Fentanyl Withdrawal Help
6 Replies RSS
Hi all. I have seen a lot of posts in the drugs forum about Fentanyl withdrawal. I too have been struggling with the withdrawal symptoms for 10 days now. Trust me when I say it DOES and WILL get easier. I know that if you have just recently started a taper or have gone cold turkey because a taper hasn't worked for you, you're probably not feeling very well right now.Trust me when I say it will get better. It may take weeks to finally feel normal again, but the worst will be over before you know it! I was on 100mcg/hr for about a year, and just recently tapered to 12.5 but went through withdrawal anyhow. Here are a few things that might help, and that have helped me get through the worst of it. ****REMEMBER***** To consult your doctor before pulling yourself off any medication :)...

I was on the original trial 4 or the scent in December 2006 is it still available by prescription ## Hello, Mikel! How are you? This contained the active ingredient Fentanyl and it is still available via prescription in several forms. The tablets from Cephalon are now called Fentora. The FDA classifies this medication as 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?

i need to know how ong fentanyl 100mcg/hr stay in your urine. how long can it be detected after taking your patch off? ## If you have a valid prescription, then it does not matter, you simply need to make them aware of it when you have the test. Fentanyl has a short half-life of only 7 hours, so it will be out of your system in approximately 48 hours. ## Been on 100 mcg patch for several yrs..no trouble except patch is only effective for 48 hrs, not 72. Have no side effects. Starting to notice I'm not getting as much relief. tried two patches and was fine and got needed relief. ## I have been chewing fentanyl patches for the past couple of weeks. after I chew this last patch how long will it take to leave my system?

25 mg fentanyl patch
1 Reply RSS
I am currently wearing the Fentanyl 25 patch. I have had some (4) bad experiences this month alone. Exerting myself - gardening, carrying groceries, lifting anything; I become short of breath, extremely rapid heart rate and my legs and upper body become very weak. Has anyone else ever experienced something like this. I honestly thought I was having a heart attack. To be fair, I had awful leg weakness before I started taking or using anything. I don't know what to do. I took an OxyContin (30) mg and had an even worse experience than mentioned above. (Shortness of breath & rapid heart beat went on longer). I have ruptured disks and extreme leg pain that's why I started pain med. I hope someone can help me. ## Hello, KathyB! How are you feeling? I'm sorry about the experien...
