will fentanyl show up in drug test as an opiate
152 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 WAS ON 200 MG OF FENTANYL EVERY 72 HRS FOR ONE MONTH GOT A URINE TEST 12 DAYS LATER SHOWED UP IN RESULTS DID NOT TAKE ANY EXCEPT MY MS CONTIN WHY DID THIS HAPPEN THEY WANT TO TAKE AWAY MY MEDS ## You're question is kind of confusing... You said you we're on 200mg for a month did you have a script for it or just for fun? If you had a script then they wouldn't take away your meds. They'll most likely give you a second chance but make sure you come up clean next time or they will take the morphine away. ## In reply to T: who the hell are u to question ppl In such a way? Second why in the hell would u think Sumone would use a 200 mcg fentanyl patch "FOR FUN" Are u 4Real ?? Ppl can die from that "FUN TIME" u think they can just get a hold of sumthin That jus...

I have multiple horrendous back problems, to say the least. I used to be on fentanyl patches, somas, percs, and methadone before the patches. I live in a very rural area and the drs make it clear that they no longer prescribe narcotics period. That's so unfare. I despertly need pain relief. Plz help. ## Hello, Aimer! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain and having such a problem. There were new regulations put in place last year that restrict what PCPs can prescribe, so you will need to find a pain management specialist to continue such medications. Have you tried asking your current doctor to refer you to someone? And can you please post back with your general area of PA? I am originally from there and may know of some doctors you can try in your area. This is a ...

I WAS PRESCRIBED THE 50 MCG/HR FENTANYL PATCH FOR CHRONIC BACK PAIN & DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE. I WAS GIVEN THE PRESCRIPTION SEVERAL WEEKS AGO. I JUST GOT IT FILLED 2 DAYS AGO BECAUSE I'M AFRIAD TO USE IT. I HAVE READ ALL THE PATIENT INFO, RESEARCHED IT ON THE NET & TALKED TO SEVERAL PHARMACISTS AS WELL AS MY PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN. ALL OF THE PHYSICIANS & PHARMACISTS TELL ME THAT THE PATCH WILL HELP ME WITH THE DAILY PAIN.

Can You Cut The Fentanyl Patch In Half
47 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...

I am on disability for chronic back pain and degenerative disk disease, in the past I have been on 80 mil oxicontin for about eight years, but have not been on any medications in the past year. I am now at the point of needing pain meds again. ## Hello, Stan! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. If you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. Do you currently have a PCP that you see regularly? If so, asking them to refer you to someone would most likely be the quickest and easiest way to get the help you need. 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. ## There are no new regu...

CAN ANYONE TELL ME HOW TO KEEP THE PATCH FROM COMING OFF AFTER SECOND DAY ? I SHOWER A COUPLE TIMES A DAY AND ON THE SECOND DAY THE PATCH WON'T STAY ON.THEN YOU USE MORE THAN WHAT IS PERSCRIBED AND YOU RUN OUT OF PATCHES AND THE INSURANCE COMPANY WON'T PAY FOR ANY MORE THAN PERSCRIBED,THEN COMES WITH DRAW ? ## The information I received with my patches indicate that the patch should not get wet. I have the same problem. In reading other post, there is a clear cover that can be obtained to protect the patch from water. I have not researched for any sourses, but will soon. I will contact you again if I find a resonable sourse, unless I see another post answers your question. This drug scares me, I have expereniced the DT's with much weaker drugs, and I would not wish that 10 d...

how long does fentanyl patch stay in urine
169 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 Can I Just Go Cold Turkey When Quitting
134 Replies RSS
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 withdrawals. 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 withdrawals. 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/arthr...

...about to take my first shower with Fentanyl patch - help friends! I'm afraid, suggestions anyone???
12 Replies RSS
I'm new on 100 Fentanyl patches for the second day - feel OK, I've been on opioids for pain management for few years, read a lot of scary posts on misuse and deaths... I am so worried at this point, that taking a shower scares me.. Can anyone suggest any "coverage" for the patch area, while in a shower??? I don't think I can just "take a shower as is", it will come off, I'm sure... I like the patch, it does work ( I intend to use it EXACTLY as prescribe), but I am, as mentioned before, simply paranoid, I will get the patch wet, damage, etc., Also, I read a "hot showers are a BIG NOs" - anyone tell me more about it??? Please friends, I need a shower badly, it's not fair to others and members of my family, the girl needs her hair done! :) Thank ...

Fentanyl Withdrawal Symptoms
1637 Replies RSS
I'm trying to wean myself off the Fentanyl patch. I went from 75 micro-gms to 50 now I'm on 25. Having a problem and not sure it is related to the decrease in the med. It's been 20 days on the 25 micro-gm and I'm going crazy. I need to keep rocking, moving in any way b/c my body is very restless. Is this a symptom of withdrawal and what do I do? I cannot take it any more. ## Yes, that can be caused by withdrawal, you probably jumped down in dosage a little too fast. This med is very, very strong, 80 times stronger than Morphine and it has a half-life of 17 hours, so that means once you take off the patch, it takes 17 hours until it has dwindled to 50% off the full dose in your body, then it slows and actually takes 3 or 4 days before it is all out of your system. So if y...

Fentanyl Sweating

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...

Is the writing a clue that the patch is, or isn't working ?? ## I have never heard of a patch that used such a thing to show that it was working.

Going From Fent Patch to Dilaudid in Pain Pump-Withdrawal?
6 Replies RSS
My doctors don't seem to think there's much withdrawal if there is med in the pump. I know the change in med will cause withdrawal. Has anyone been in this situation? I've read about handling withdrawal here. I just wonder how this may work and how much the med in the pump will help. ## It really depends on what dosage they are giving you of the Dilaudid, if they make sure it is equivalent to, or a little higher than the amount in your Fentanyl patch, then you shouldn't experience any withdrawal issues. Withdrawal only occurs if a medication like this is completely stopped, without being replaced with anything else. Your doctors should calculate an equivalent dosage and set the pump up to deliver that amount, which is why they probably aren't worried about withdrawal...

Looking for some help on fentanyl
Post a Reply
I have a bad back. I'm missing a vertebra and have a metal spacer now and a lot of screws, total 20 surgeries. I now have a pain pump (fentanyl) and take 30mg Oxy 3x a day. Screwed my back up Jan 1999, so I've been on this stuff a while and never abused it as I chase the pain, not the high. I fell and knocked my shoulder out and chipping bone off the rim of the socket and had surgery. My surgeon said he would not give me anything for pain because I have a pain management Dr. Just before surgery I went to my pain Dr and told him about this. My back injury was work related, so he told me he couldn't treat me for my shoulder. Anyone that's had shoulder surgery knows the pain level of it and the long & painful recovery. I can't believe these Dr won't do anything....

Fentanyl Oxy...Genetic testing shows fast metabolism of meds

After being hit head on by a drunk driver when I was 14 (I'm now 43) I lived until my mid twenties literally in agony. In my late 20's I was referred to a pain management Dr because of the severity of my injury and lack of trying everything else under the sun to relieve my symptoms, all to no avail. After years of seeing the same pain Dr I ended up in ICU due to an unrelated but still a very excruciating life threatening emergency. Unfortunately and too my complete surprise (while simultaneously praying for someone to just please put me out of my misery) I wasn't able to receive ANYTHING at all for pain in the ER out of fear of an overdose. I had been taking my prescribed medications for many many years which were 200mcg of the Fentanyl patch to be changed every 48 hrs as we...

Fentanyl Withdrawal Help

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 :)...

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...
