fentanyl false positive
25 Replies RSS
I have now tested positive 2 different times for Fentanyl which I have never taken. I'm prescribed Trazodone, Gabapentin, Suboxone and Bupropion. Is there any reason that this could happen, or should I be worried that I'm being drugged? ## I have also tested false-positive for Fentanyl on a mouth swab test for DCS. I also take Suboxone, Gabapentin, Remeron, Omeprazole, Cymbalta, Micronor (birth control), and Melatonin. I KNOW I haven't been exposed to this drug, what could cause this?? They are opening a DCS case and I could lose custody of my son because of this. The mouth swab took over 10 minutes too administer, and it did NOT turn blue, my mouth was so dry I couldn't get any spit to come out because I was having a panic attack. The Fentanyl showed up at 15.8 ng, whic...

is it okay to chew a fentanyl 50mg pain patch
684 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 ...

Fentanyl Can I Just Go Cold Turkey When Quitting
144 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...

Fentanyl 75mcg patch
Post a Reply
I was on oxycodone for 5 yrs, Doctor decides his practice doesn't want to go the oxy 30 route anymore... Gives me 50mcg fentanyl patch 1 every 72 hrs. To be honest I didn't feel anything really, but I didn't feel sick or like sh**.. Go to next appointment, and told him the same, didn't feel anything and my chronic back and neck pain is off the charts. He upped the patch to 75mcg.. still don't really feel anything except my pain problems.. tried cutting the 1st 75mcg patch and chewing a small size piece after wearing 1st patch for only 48hrs hoping it would help my pain problems along with a new 75mcg patch!!! Still the same, hurting but not feeling like crap at least... I've been reading on here about breakthrough pain help????? Any ideas?? Thanks

false positive drug tests for fentanyl

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...

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 ## Fentanyl is the strongest narcotic opiate available on the market, it is over 80 times stronger than Morphine. Learn more Fentanyl details here. How often do you change the patches? What other medications have you tried? ## I hope by now you've found a medication or mixture of meds that are helpful. As there are too many people handing out bad information & using these sorts of places to find drugs, it's not proper to ask for names of "better" medications. There are medications stronger than fentanyl & for osteo pain; a mix of NSAIDs & narcotics, as well as physical therapy & exercise, have been proven to be most beneficia...

Fentanyl Patches

Can anyone please tell me if the Fentanyl Patches show up in a Drug Screen as a Opiate. Please Help me. ## Yes, they most certainly will. They are a VERY, VERY strong opiate narcotic, so any screening done for opiates WILL come up positive if you are using these. ## No they do not on a standard urine test, they are a different synthetic and are delivered in small micrograms. The only way for them to detect it is to send it to a lab that has a Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS) which will then pick up the fentanyl (Duragesic) I hope this helps!!! ## Thanks so much for this info!! I just had an awful situation today with a doctor accusing me of cheating on a drug test because no opiates showed up in my system. I still think something should've showed up, I don't know if ...

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.

Fentanyl Patches Killing people!

I would like to know WHY the FDA has not taken the Fentanyl Patch off the market? This drug is being handed out like candy. Anyone who is not terminal or under Hospice care or in a hospital invironment should not be using this drug. Why would a person be prescribed a medication that is 80 times stronger than morphine for a backache. I do not believe patients know how powerful this medication is.The warning should be labled in RED. When are you FDA going to realize This medication is killing while relieving pain! I know because it killed my son. ## Very sorry to hear that you lost your son, from use of this medication. As to the warnings, those used by the FDA are black box warnings, to alert people to serious risks. While it can be dangerous, since it is so powerful and often abuse, it ...

How long does fentanyl remain in a patch after 3 days
2 Replies RSS
Is there any fentanyl left in a 50mg patch after 3 days? Because the paperwork days they could kill animals and small children ## Hello, Sherri! How are you? Yes, while most of the medication is absorbed and used, there are always traces of it still in the patch and, since this is a very potent narcotic, it could be enough to harm animals and small children, as reported by the manufacturer. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## After using a fentanyl patch 50 mcg/h for 3 days how much medication is left in the patch? My Dr reduced my patch from 75 mcg/h to 50 and I sometimes leave my used patch on for up to 2 weeks ...

how long does fentanyl patch stay in urine
201 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 ...

will fentanyl show up in drug test as an opiate
232 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 ...

Mallinckrodt Fentanyl Patch

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...

How long does fentanyl stay in your system? ## It's detectable for approximately 2 days in a standard urine test and about the same amount of time for blood testing. Learn more Fentanyl details here. The precise time frame will vary from person to person, depending on your metabolism, overall health, activity levels, fluid intake and etc. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Can you get the patch for severe constant back pain & migraines? ## A lot depends on how you do the Fentanyl also. Are you abusing it? Do you attach it to a fatty part of your skin, such as your buttocks? or do you attach it to your arm where there isn't much fat? These have a lot to do with how long the drugs stays a part of you... ## Fully rely on God!!!! All pm docs will fail you because they...

Besides being on the patch. It seems after the second day on. the night before I chang it every 3 days. I have much pain, and can not sleep. Where I live, not many stock this , and it seems I get a different one(brand) every month. My actual question is. Can I get the patch and use every two days, instead of three?? It would make my life ,so much better, and always having to call DR. a day or two for visit. I know I had read it takes some time without it. Not for me. I feel the withdrawls within 10-12 hours. Thank You. ## Yes, it can be changes as often as every 48 hours, instead of every 72. There are many people that have to use it that way, especially once they become tolerant to the higher dosage every 3 days and it is no longer effective, which seems to be exactly what you're e...

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 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???
