Pain Medication Stronger Than Fentanyl
9 Replies RSS
At the hospital with heart and.chest pain. already on a fentanol patch and its not working. is there anything stronger than the fentanol patch? ## No, Fentanyl is really the strongest narcotic on the market, since it's over 80 times stronger than Morphine. However, there are medications they can give you that would work faster, but on that the relevant question is, what is causing the pain? ## I need a dr in Binghamton area for my medications fentanol and Percocet my dr went out with cancer and the other dr is not weighting he scripts for anyone any more new York Binghamton vestal plead help ## Ask at your hospital for the name of a Pain Specialist, or Rheumatologist. General Practitioners only know what the drug reps tell them. Attending a set of pain self-management sessions at yo...

Fentanyl 7 months off after five years of using the patch
11 Replies RSS
Just wanted to update and touch base with anyone wanting to stop using the patch or struggling through withdrawals. I was on the Fentanyl patch, ranging from 150 mcg to 25 mcg, for five years due to a rare debilitating, extremely painful disease called Dermatomyositis. This disease causes deep skin lesions and basically eats away the muscles of your upper arms and upper thighs and hips. It prevents you from doing anything requiring raising your arms above your shoulders, It also prevents you from walking up hills, stairs, etc. It eventually affects your lungs and swallowing. This disease crosses over with SLE and Fibromyalgia. I take 16 prescription drugs including a chemo injection and a med that is given to organ transplant patients to keep my body from rejecting itself plus the typic...

Using Fentanyl to get off methadone
33 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...

On Fentanyl How Long To Wait Take Suboxone
36 Replies RSS
i am on 100 mcg fentanyl patch every 48 and given the certain amount of waste each month with one or more galling off and whatnot i keep a couple suboxone from an old script on hand. how long should i wait to take a half an eight mg sub.??? thank you in advance ## To prevent them falling off, you might want to try using some waterproof medical tape to help keep them on, they also sell a clear sticky patch that can be used over them and it is fine to do so, unless your doctor has given you specific instructions not to. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Learn more Suboxone details here. As to the Suboxone, along with the narcotic Buprenorphine, it also contains Naloxone, which is used to help prevent the abuse of other opiates, while someone is under treatment with it, thus you have to be...

false positive drug tests for fentanyl
4 Replies RSS
I'm currently taking Trazodone for sleep. I am also involved in a outpatient drug program that uses Zubsolv rather than Suboxone. My last three drug screens have come back positive for fentanyl which I have never used even during my addiction. My question is, is it possible that the Trazodone would cause my urine screens to come up positive for the fentanyl? ## I AM ON A SUBOXONE PROGRAM AND EVERYTIME I DO A URINE TEST IT COMES BACK POSTIVE FOR FENTANYL AND I HAVE NEVER TAKEN FENTANYL OR ANY DRUG LIKE IT, I HAVE HEARD SOMETHING ABOUT FENTANYL AND TRAZODONE AND I DO TAKE TRAZODONE FOR SLEEPING IS THIS WHY I AM TESTING POSITIVE FOR FENTANYL, I AM GOING CRAZY BECAUSE I HAVE LOOKED EVERY WHERE AND CAN'T FIND ANY REASON WHY IT'S THERE, PLEASE HELP ME FIGURE THIS OUT. ## Hi Bonita...

Fentanyl patch falling off
21 Replies RSS
my patch keeps coming off prematurely. can you recommend a solution? ## You can buy Tegaderm at Walgreen's, it's an occlusive dressing and apply it over the patch and as long as you don't have adhesive allergies it should hold through showers, etc. until the next patch is needed. Sometimes happens, may ask doctor about changing brands, some do better than others, good luck. ## I had the same problem.Went to Walgreen's and purchased Nexcare (I believe that's the brand). It is a clear sticky cover which works keeping the patch on! Went swimming, showering & used the jacuzzi. At times it was difficult getting them off. Good luck. Judy ## The other posters are correct, sometimes something else is required to help keep them on, such as another adhesive product, or wat...

Do I need a prescription to get Fentanyl? I have a bad back with no Medicaid. I need to know if u can purchase it at CVS? ## Fentanyl is a very potent opiate narcotic, so it is only available via prescription. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Have you consulted a doctor for assistance?

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 Sweating
54 Replies RSS
I am a 33 yr old woman being treated by Pain Mgmt Dr. for chronic pain as a result of 3 failed elbow surgeries and nerve damage. My current dosage is 50mcg/hr every 48 hrs with up to 4 oxycodone per day for break through pain. I know the patch is suppose to be a good medication for pain control, but I am really considering asking to change to a different medication because of the sweating problems I have on the Fentanyl and I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem. I am constantly drenched sinced I have been on the patch. Dr tried hytrin to control sweating, but all that did was cause me to bloat. I tried HRT for a year to see if that would help...no luck, still sweating. I sleep with only a sheet over me and window open at night and still wake up soaked from sweat. If I do a...

will fentanyl show up in drug test as an opiate
103 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 ...

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...

how long does fentanyl patch stay in urine
142 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 t...

Fentanyl detection in urine tests using GC/MS

Ok...I am going to ask a very specific question. I am NOT a drug abuser nor have I ever been. I got my foot caught in the smallest and last loop on a Hoyer lift sling used to transfer non-ambulatory clients. I went a few feet, but then my world changed in an instant. The gentleman sitting on the sling wasn't going anywhere..he was safe. When I reached the slack limit on the sling, I went up in the air and twisted 180 degrees. I came down EXTREMELY hard on my right knee and the rest of me crumpled down on top. I curled up in a fetal position and saw stars for 20 minutes. The rest of my co-workers were doing ADL care with the other 7 residents of this eight bed state-funded group home serving the developmentally disabled in Massachusetts. So after quite a few minutes, I got up, could ...

Can You Cut The Fentanyl Patch In Half
33 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...
