is it okay to chew a fentanyl 50mg pain patch
652 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 ...

will Fentanyl show up on a urine drug screen
1 Reply RSS
Will Fentanly show up on a urine screen at the pain clinic? They used Fentanly to sedate me for a procedure and then I had to give a urine screen. ## Just take your record showing what drug or drugs you were given for sedation or pain by an actual doctor's order and they can't say anything.

positive urine test for fentanyl

My husband puts on my fentanyl patches for me because i can not reach my back. He had also woke up with one of my patches stuck to his arm which came off some time when we were sleeping. He takes percocet only but when he went into take a urine test it came back positive for fentanyl and percocet. The patch that was stuck to his arm was a patch that was already on me for almost 2 days. Why would he show positive for fentanyl. He's upset with me because of that one getting stuck to him and that he has to touch them to put it on my back. Is this stuff really that strong to show up in his urine? ## Absolutely, The patch will still have between 25% and 50% of the drug still on the patch after 3 days of use. Many test come up with an average of 33 percent of the drug left after 72 hours ...

fentynal to methadone right choice?
1 Reply RSS
I was just taking fentynal 37.5 each day and found myself abusing it. I couldn't get enough. I was in an accident in 2013 and put on fentynal. I'm also an addict. Now I need to get off fentanyl because I'm addicted to it, I was abusing it and going thru the prescription fast and having a hard time finding a doctor to prescribe it to me. My pharmicist has sent me to a methadone clinic to help get off the fentynal. I have heard bad things about methadone. Like how hard it is to get off it. But so is fetynal. I want to be clean of opiates and options. Is taking methadone and going thru the program the right way? Has anyone successful got off methadone from being on fentanyl or another drug? ## Some people do successfully get off of other drugs by using Methadone, there are alwa...

Fentanyl Can I Just Go Cold Turkey When Quitting
125 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 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...

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...

will fentanyl show up in drug test as an opiate
113 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 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.

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...

Fentanyl Patches
17 Replies RSS
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 ...

Help getting off fentanyl patches

My mom has been on fentanyl patches for about 5 years now , 50 MCG/HR FENTANYL PATCH.... the pain clinic that is responsible for giving her the patches now says she needs to be off them, they have not lowered the dosage but now no longer are prescribing her any more, I agree that she needs to go off them, but she has experienced withdrawal symptoms so severe that she ended up in the ER, they gave her a one week supply until she could make other arrangements My question is...how can a pain clinic just cut her off after all of these years, I called them and told them that she needs help getting off and they gave me a number of a detox center, I called them, they haven't been a detox center for over 3 years, .so I called the pain clinic back, they said they were sorry and said they cou...

Can You Cut The Fentanyl Patch In Half
37 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..

Some doctors do prescribe these together, for breakthrough pain, what has your doctor suggested? Combining them can result in more severe side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, constipation and dry mouth. ## What is there to chew? My patch has sticky stuff with no gel.. How do you chew the sticky out? ## Mixing medications can be fatal especially narcotics. Check with any pharmacist they can tell you interactions.

Not seein doc for weeks pain getting worse just tryin different pain drugs ## Hello, Shaz! How are you? And yes, all drugs have the potential to do harm, if used improperly. Lorazepam is not a pain medication, it is a benzodiazepine that's used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. Learn more Lorazepam details here. And Fentanyl is a very potent narcotic analgesic that's over 80 times stronger than Morphine. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Both of these drugs have the potential to be addictive and taking too much of them could cause a fatal overdose. Why don't you see your doctor sooner, if you can? ## Please be careful mixing medications. As we get older our body does not process medications the same. Especially with narcotics.

how long does fentanyl patch stay in urine
146 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...

i take oxycottin 80 mgs 3 times a day i also take oxycodone 30mgs 5 times a day both prescribed by a doctor. I get drug tested every month both by urine than by a lab if i use a fentanyl patch will it show as that in my test? ## It depends on the type of test they do, but if Fentanyl is included in the panel, then yes, it will show up, if you use it near the time of the test. Most narcotics are only detectable for approximately 4 to 5 days, after last dosing. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Fentanyl WILL NOT appear on a simple Five Panel immunoassay as ANYTHING. Won't show up. Period. Source: just passed with a 75mcg patch, all tests negative. Happy testing! ## Will fentanyl show up in my urine test if I touched a patch? ## I take opana all my meds was stolen all I got...

i need to know how ong fentanyl 100mcg/hr stay in your urine. how long can it be detected after taking your patch off? ## If you have a valid prescription, then it does not matter, you simply need to make them aware of it when you have the test. Fentanyl has a short half-life of only 7 hours, so it will be out of your system in approximately 48 hours. ## Been on 100 mcg patch for several yrs..no trouble except patch is only effective for 48 hrs, not 72. Have no side effects. Starting to notice I'm not getting as much relief. tried two patches and was fine and got needed relief. ## I have been chewing fentanyl patches for the past couple of weeks. after I chew this last patch how long will it take to leave my system?

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.
