Using Fentanyl to get off methadone
43 Replies RSS
I have been on Methadone for about 5 years. I had an addiction to oxycontin and the went on methadone to quit. My highest dose was 120mg and I have managed to wean myself down to 17mg. The problem is I am having a really hard time getting off of it. Doing some reading I have learned that methadone is one of the worst for trying to quit. I have a perscription for 12mcg/h fentanyl for back pain which I havent been using but was thinking about quiting the methadone and using the patch instead so when I eventually drop it the withdraws won't be as bad. Has anyone tried this? is 12mcg enough? Any other thoughts or advice? ## I'm sending only a suggestion for you and that is...... If I were you the 12mcg. will be way way too low of a dose when coming off of oxycontin!!!! You should be...

How Long Does it take for fentanyl 25 mcg withdrawals to start and stop
52 Replies RSS
i have been on fentanyl 25mcg for about a yr. i am decreasing to 12.5 mcg for a week and then no more patches after. how long will it take to considering the info. will it take for the withdrawal to start and stop. i understand everyone is different. i will be taking valium 5mg for a couple days to ease the effects. any info would be great. ## Yes, everyone is different, so it really makes it hard to say, because it is going to vary. I stopped heavy doses of Oxycodone and Morphine cold turkey, after being on them for about 6 or 7 years for pain management and my withdrawal symptoms lasted for about a month. Hopefully the Valium will help. Has your doctor given you any other advice? ## Thanks for ur info. Several yrs ago I stopped fiorcet w codeine (on it for 4 yrs) and it took about tha...

how long does fentanyl patch stay in urine
191 Replies RSS
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 ...

Fentanyl is Extremely Dangerous and Very Addicting. If You Can Avoid Being Put On This Medication-Then PLEASE, PLEASE DO SO... They do not call Fentanyl Patches "The Devil's Drug" for nothing.

Fentanyl patch and insurance refusal
3 Replies RSS
My doctor changed my patch dose from every 72 to every 48 hours. 75 mcg dose. My insurance refused to allow it. I have AARP (united healthcare). For me it would have been much better as on the third day I get no relief.... ## Hello, Aaron! How are you? I am very sorry about what happened. Most insurances will not cover it being used every 2 days, instead of every 3, unless someone has intractable due to a possibly fatal condition such as stage 4 cancer. I know that isn't really helpful, or comforting, I am just stating the facts. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Has your doctor made any other suggestions? They might be able to prescribe an additiona...

Taper Down From 50mcg Fentanyl Patch To 25mcg Withdrawal Help
110 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...

will fentanyl show up in drug test as an opiate
201 Replies RSS
Man the amount of people who have no clue what they are talking about yet spitting advice on it like they are an expert is bewildering. NO FENTANYL does not show up as an opiate on any test anywhere. In fact the only things that will show up as an opiate are morphine, codeine, and heroin and that is because heroin and morphine metabolize into morphine. Not even oxycodone or hydrocodone can be detected as an opiate they have to be specifically tested for as they metabolize differently, same with methadone, methadone has to be specifically tested for, it will not show up as anything but methadone. So unless the test you are taking is specifically testing for fentanyl then you will be fine. The question is whether or not the test you are taking is testing for fentanyl. I have yet to see a ...

is it okay to chew a fentanyl 50mg pain patch
672 Replies RSS
I've been prescribed fentanyl 50mg pain patches and i was just wondering if it's 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... some people need faster pain relief. That being the case don't over do it, and work with your doctor to ensure you're being safe. ## Keep in mind that fentanyl patches are close to 80 ...

Is There Anyway To Calm The Feeling Of Anxiety From Withdrawl Fentanyl Patch
13 Replies RSS
I WAS ON THE FENTANYL 50 MG PATCH FOR A LONG WHILE THEN WAS PUT ON A LOWER DOSE OF 25 MG AND THEN 12 MG TO SLOWLY TAKE ME OFF, AS I NO LONGER AM IN PAIN. BUT I HAVE HAD FEELINGS OF ANXIETY AND CAN'T SEEM TO CALM DOWN. IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO TO CALM THESE ANXIOUS FEELINGS. OR DO I HAVE TO LET IT (THE ANXIETY) RUN IT'S COURSE?? ## Have you consulted your doctor? Sometimes they will prescribe a low dose Benzodiazepine, such as Xanax to be used for a short while. Other people have had success using something very mild, such as Benadryl. However, you need to check with your doctor to see what's right and safe for you to use. ## vERWON IS SPOT ON WITH ALL OF HIS ADVICE, ESP THE XANAX. Some people, like myself, have a paradox reaction to benedryl meaning that it makes them anxi...

Fentanyl Patch Withdrawal Symptoms
32 Replies RSS
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...

Will Fentanyl Patch Show Up As Morphine In A Drug Test
85 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...

fentanyl and xanax false positive
2 Replies RSS
I supposedly tested positive for Fetanyl and Xanax on my first drug screen at my first appt. She says I wasn't under her care previously and she is not discharging me but I did not do either substances EVER. My pm doc prescribes Percocet 7.5 mg 3x a day. I also take Gabapentin, Zoloft, Buspar and Meloxicam and occasionally Trazodone and Flexeril. Not daily for those. I don't think it's likely that I tested positive for both of these substances and they sounded way TOO determined that I was guilty which didn't add up. I also have a 7 month old baby and only took pain meds for 2 days post C Section. After these major herniations + other issues I couldn't take the pain. Something was fishy sounding with how the girl that took my urine couldn't look me in the eye and...

How Long Does Fentanyl Stay In Your Blood System
18 Replies RSS
I have to take blood test in 2 weeks. IHave to know how long,it takes for my Fentanyl 100 mg Patch to get out of my blood stream. I have to take it my last one off in 3 days is it enough time for it to leave my body and blood system. ## If you have a prescription for the patches, then there is no need to worry, you just need to inform them of this, when you go in for testing. There are only certain exceptions, where someone can be denied the use of these types of medications. However, for a blood test, Fentanyl is usually only detectable for approximately 2 days, after last usage. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Rusty asked how long does fentanyl take to get out of the bloodstream. He/she did not asked if you approved whether or not there was a legit script.

Does anyone know how it is made? Does it have the medicine woven into the fabric of the patch or is it in a pouch form? Thank you ## No, I'm sorry, due to the risks of then being abused, such as people trying to smoke the medication from a patch, they no longer publicly list the specifics of its make up. They are really only required to list it with the FDA safety filings anyway, so they can get away with doing this quite easily. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Have you gotten some manufactured by them from your pharmacy? ## If the patch has a gel filled pouch....what would the gel be there for if it wasn't impregnated with the medicine? ## I have been using Fentanyl patches for about 2 years, the 75 Mcg. I usually get the Mylan brand. Drug store was low on the Wty they had so...

Fentanyl Vs Percocet For Chronic Pain
2 Replies RSS
I live with severe chronic pain for 3+ years, degenerative disc disease, cervical spine. Life is at times and quite often, hell. I don't know how else to describe it and the worst if the constipation from the percocets. Are the fentanyl patches a reasonable alternative to percocets? Do they cause constipation? Should my doctor consider prescribing me patches to try? Cannabis by the way has helped me reduce my opioid intake my 75%. Do a search for beyondthc and find out the facts. Unfortunately my pain is more severe and so a combination has helped me do this major reduction, however the constipation is still a problem. Help! ## Hi Tudo, Sorry to hear about your complications with Percocet. From what I could gather, Fentanyl patches list the following gastrointestinal related side ef...
