Is There Anyway To Calm The Feeling Of Anxiety From Withdrawl Fentanyl Patch
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...

Trying to kick the Fentanyl patch
This is my 1st post ever, anywhere. I am trying to get off Fentanyl. 7 years ago I was Rx'ed 25 mcg patches every 72 hrs. Went to every 48 hrs within a month. Went to a 50 every 48 to a 75 every 48 to the 100 mcg every 48 hrs.. Been on 100 mcg's (48 hrs) for several years now and I'm sick and tired of taking the patch. I have DDD, two failed rotator cuff surgeries as well as an elbow surgery (pain). The shoulder and back pain is the worst. I'm 52 years old, worked a steady job with Ma Bell as a lineman 25 years and wore my body out. Three weeks ago I started cutting my Mylan brand 100 mcgh patches in half. So far so good. I did notice that I started taking more of the Dilauid I'm rx'ed for breakthrough pain. My plan is to keep cutting the patches in half till I...

how long does fentanyl stay in system?
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...

fentanyl patch, temp sensitive etc
Hello, I am on fentanyl patch 50mcg. I think i got longer times on same medicine with pill medicine. This is longer times i have been on the medicine before needing an adjustment to a higher medicine. can you get tolerant faster on a patch verses a pill pain medicine? If a person naturually can heat up does the patch dump more medicine in the body and thus run out earlier then total three days? I also notice if you have lost muscle tone it seems the patch doesn't stick as well. IF the muscle is more away from the body could affect how medicine is delivered in body? I notice i can't water walk at all for if water gets to the patch i need another one before my time is up or more times when doesn't seem to work as well if water gets on it. I never take another patch but this is...

FENTANYL PATCH
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
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...

what happens if some 1 stops taking 250mcg off fentanyl
i am on 250mcg off fentanyl patches I change 2 100 ones every 48hours and the 50mcg one every 72 hours if I was to just stop them what would happen to me some help advice would be good ## Hello, Sammy! How are you? If you stopped suddenly, you'd experience pretty severe withdrawals effects, such as rebound pain, dizziness, drowsiness, vomiting and diarrhea. It is best to taper as slowly as possible. Is there anything else I can help with? ## It can be dangerous to stop such a high dose and go cold turkey. Taper off, as you would need a lot of any other opiate to take away the w/d.

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...

FENTANYL 50 MCG/HOUR TRANSDERMAL PATCH
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. THEY SAY THAT THE PATCH SHOULD NOT CAUSE ME ANY HARM BUT THE ONE TING THAT'S STOPPING ME FROM USING IT IS THE RESPIRATORY SIDE EFFECTS & POSSIBLE OVERDOSE. I'M SEEKING SOME ADVISE FROM PEOPLE THAT HAVE USED THIS DRUG BEFORE WHETHER IT WAS A GOOD OR BAD OUTCOME. I AM OPOID TOLERANT BECAUSE I'VE BEEN DEALING WITH THIS PAIN FOR THE LAST ...

I am taking Fentanyl patch 75mcg/hr
I am taking Fentanyl patch 75mcg/hr. can this med cause bad pain in the rectal area including butt bones sore to the touch? ## Hi Roadrunner, You know I haven't found anything actually that directly relates to the type of symptoms you're describing, listed on the drug monograph. However the closest side effects I did see mentioned were "indigestion and abdominal/stomach pain" - which makes me wonder if this discomfort/pain could potentially spread down to that region. None the less, if it's become too bothersome or severe, it's probably something you'd want to have your doctor check out just to be on the safe side. The U.S. National Library of Medicine also lists "body aches" under a category called 'Incidence not known': ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubm...

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

I have steel rods in my back for scoliosis. They have caused severe nerve damage and I am in constant pain.Fentanyl patches and oxycodone helps me be able to fix myself a microwave meal.I don't have family to help.I need a doctor to prescribe fentanyl patch and oxycodone in the kentucky area.I can't ride far cause i hurt bad. Please help.Thank you. ## Hello, Daise! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, 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 might be able to refer you to someone? If so, that will most likely be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need. I also want to caution you about asking a doctor for specific medicatio...

I started to get very restless and not able to controll movements not sleeping , snezzing, bowl movements. No concentration, heavy headed. Please I need help. I can not stand thisbarbar ## Hi Barbara! You should let your doctor know the way you're feeling. You could be going through withdrawals. ## @Barbara, You mentioned in your post that the doctor "thought" it was no longer working... Are you in direct communication with him letting him know whether it is or isn't working or is he just assuming these things without your input? Oxycontin is considered to a be weaker medication than Fentanyl in that regard,...

How are you? No, Fentanyl is the strongest narcotic available, it is even stronger than Oxycodone. 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, you may need a medication for breakthrough pain, in addition to the patches. Most doctors will prescribe a low dose Oxycodone or something similar. Have you let your doctor know that your current regimen isn't hand...

Pennsylvania pain doctors
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 ...

Fentanyl Withdrawal Symptoms
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...
