Fentyanl Patches
3 Replies RSS
I have a fentynal 100mg patch. I usually suck the gel out but this one is not gel its on sticky strip paper. so how do i get the medicine off now, suck on the paper? ## It's actually not safe to do so. Fentanyl is a very potent narcotic, it is actually over 80 times stronger than Morphine and using it in such a manner does create the very real risk of overdose. Learn more: The 100mcgs is the highest dosage patch available, so it is very dangerous. Are there any other questions or comments? ## You chew on it sticky side out. chew on it all day same affect as gel. I like them better ## What me and my boyfriend do with our fentynal patches is we cut little pieces off and just suck on that.. sticky side on my tounge :)

looking to purchase some fentanyl patches online and don't know where to go can anyone help me ## Hi my names Andrew garrison I'm 20 years old an I suffer from chronic jaw an collar bone pain from braking my jaw braking my collar bones 4 times I hurt every day an the only thing that I found that helps is fentanyl ## Express Scripts is a good mail order for prescriptions. I had no problems receiving all but my scheduled II prescriptions. When I called them to find out why I haven't received these prescriptions they claimed they never receive my scheduled II prescriptions. It was their word verses mine, so I started sending the scheduled II prescriptions certified with signature required. Once Express Scripts signed for the prescription the green card they signed was mailed ba...

I know Fentanyl is supposed to be stronger than Morphine however it does not help me near as much! !! I wish so bad that I could go back to MS Contin TR 100 mg three times a day with Morphine Instant 30 my PRN for break through pain. That worked so much better than Dilaudid or Fentanyl to me but I had to change doctors and now I can't get what works best! !! This leaves me in bed 90 % of the time! This SUCKS!!! This is not what I became a RN to do!!! ## Hello, Sis! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. Not every medications works well for everyone that tries it, regardless of how strong they are and your doctor should be aware of that. According to the NIH, it's normal to sometimes have someone that has to try several, before finding one that works best or hav...

Taper Down From 50mcg Fentanyl Patch To 25mcg Withdrawal Help
49 Replies RSS
So, I'm in a big big dilemma. For my own security and well being, I MUST come off my Fentanyl transdermal patch. I've Been using 50mcg/72 hours for about 6 mths straight. I have 3 of the 50mcg patches left and 4 of the 25mcg to help me taper off. I will no longer be using them anymore, just Norcos or oxymorphone IR. I'm absolutely terrified of withdrawals. My doc who put me on them has No idea what it's like to come off like this. Can someone please tell me if and how bad the withdrawals from going down that much will affect me? I can not take any benzos (Ativan, xanax, etc) I have come off the oxymorph about 75% in the last 2 mths. I'm literally freaking out. Again, I'm terrified but HAVE to do this for at least another 7 months. Any help would be appreciated. O...

Fentanyl Patch Withdrawal Symptoms

I have been on the 100 mg patch and percocet for my chrons and colitis for years. Last week I went cold turkey on my own recognance. I had my 2nd colostmy surgery which elevated my pain mostly, hence quitting. I am having insomnia and terrible joint pain but never had I been more clairvoiant inn years. I take Advil for my back and work out 4 days a week which helps sweat the toxins out. Exercise releases natural endorphans which are like a synthetic morphine so my specailist says lol. Its up to each individual to face their own truth. When your ready to kick, you know. I wouldn't advise you to do what I did but that's always been my personality. I quit smoking this way as well. Its not for everyone. Good luck all. After the storm comes the sunshine, TRUST ME! ## HI Iceman, Thank...

fentanyl patch withdrawal symptoms and duration

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.

fentanyl patch with opana er
1 Reply RSS
I just need to know how long I have to wait from removing a fentanyl patch to taking an opana er. Fentanyl patch is 12mcg/h and opana er is 15mg. ## Hello, Purple! How are you? Were you provided with any instructions for switching? Other than possibly some time, there shouldn't be any other reasons to have to wait, since they are both narcotics and don't cancel each other out. 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. However, the Opana isn't as strong as the Fentanyl, so you may still experience some withdrawal effects, such as nausea, dizziness, chills, headache and diarrhea, as listed in the databases.

Fentanyl Can I Just Go Cold Turkey When Quitting

My doctor has had me on the 100 fentanyl patch for 1 year now. He is going to take me off it. Can you just stop taking it with out side effects or withdrawls. Please tell me the proper way to get off this patch. Please help me, I have the doctor appointment tomorrow and want to know what to say. So far it sounds like his plan is just to take me off cold turkey. I am scared of withdrawls I am a mom of 5 kids and need to be ok. Please help. ## No, it is not safe to go cold turkey. I have had a doctor tell me that no one has ever died from withdrawal. Fentanyl withdrawal can slow or even stop your breathing. I have been on a 350 mcg dose of fentanyl patcheds every 48 hours for 10+ years. I was in a serious car accident w/ligament & tendon injury, then they thought chronic pain/arthriti...

Combining it with the other medications can cause some depression of the central nervous system, which is likely contributing to his feeling drowsy. What you should...

getting off fentenyl patch

How long will it take and how dangerous to me . I have been on same 100 Mcgraw for approx 15 years for degeneration of disc , spinal stenois, 3 back surgeries at 4 levels and still some herniation going on but done with surgeries that just make it even worse and oh yea I also have knee damage in both knees but can still pop back into place not as painful as back. ## Hello, Annie! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. If you were on it for that many years, it will likely take several months to do a proper slow and safe taper. This is a very potent narcotic, over 80 times stronger than Morphine, so you have to stop it very slowly, to avoid severe withdrawal symptoms and rebound pain. However, by working with your doctor, you can set up a proper tapering schedule and they can...

is it okay to chew a fentanyl 50mg pain patch
449 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...

My mom has been on fentanyl patches for about 5 years now , 50 MCG/HR FENTANYL PATCH.... the pain clinic that is responsible for giving her the patches now says she needs to be off them, they have not lowered the dosage but now no longer are prescribing her any more, I agree that she needs to go off them, but she has experienced withdrawal symptoms so severe that she ended up in the ER, they gave her a one week supply until she could make other arrangements My question is...how can a pain clinic just cut her off after all of these years, I called them and told them that she needs help getting off and they gave me a number of a detox center, I called them, they haven't been a detox center for over 3 years, .so I called the pain clinic back, they said they were sorry and said they cou...

Hi I'm on 100 I do know when they run but they don't desalt seem to do much what is better then this for osteo pain? Thanks ## The 100mcg Fentanyl patches are actually the strongest narcotic analgesic on the market, it's over 80 times stronger than Morphine. Learn more Fentanyl details here. What other medications have you tried? How long do you wear each patch? ## Fentanyl should NEVER be used for osteo pain. It works on nerve pain but I've never know it to work on knee replacement, etc. 100 mcg/hr is the MAXIMUM dose. Any more than that can be FATAL. I'm not a physician, but I'd recommend Naproxin 500 mg twice a day. It is the active ingredient in Alieve BUT it is the prescription strength and is cheaper than any other drug I've found that works.

im wanting to purchase fentanyl online.Does anyone know about a website thats legit were i can have prescription drugs sent to me without a prescription? ## Looking for injectable fentynal or 100mcg patches depending on prices. Are they shipped discreet. I believe we dealt with other things before. ## This site does not manufacture, nor sell any medications or products, it is an information only website. And as to a legitimate place to get Fentanyl without a prescription, such a place does not exist. If they were legitimate, they'd require a prescription. If you order somewhere without one, then you would have to take the associated risks. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Hi, I live here in the Philippines and have level four prostate cancer which has metastasized to my...

forced withdrawal need help

My pain doctor was out of the country for 2 months. I was seeing her P.A. who was amazing. I hadn't planned to stay with this new pain doctor anyway she was horrible. Anyway, I called for over a week to ask the nurse what I should do because I couldn't keep the fentanyl patches secured and used more of them, I was on my last one. I called everyday and left a message. She calls me back saying I couldn't get any refills until my appt. In 4 more days. I pleaded with her that I'd read the leaflet and feared the extent of the withdrawl. No answer. So I took some old (expired) meds that I had so I could fight the withdrawl. I brought them with me and told the P.A. While I was there what I did. She sympathized and seemed to know there were issues like this. I found out that day...

Tolerence Fentanyl Transdermal Patch
6 Replies RSS
I've been using the the 25mcg patch for chronic pain for 3mos. and feel it is not working as well as it did in the beginning. Could I be building a tolerence this soon? Should I ask my neurologist to increase the dosage? or should I ask for other pain med to use with the patch? ## You have definitely built up a tolerance. Also, the problem with extremely strong narcotics like fentanyl is when you become dependent (NOT addicted, big difference), your brain starts to send out a false sense of pain that is telling you that you need more and more. It is all up to you and your doc. The more and the longer you stay on it the worse it will be to get off of it (withdrawals). Also they could could give you something else on top of the fent for breakthrough pain, but it will just probably be ...
