Fentanyl patch takes about 12 hrs to get into your system
There seams to be an unbelievable amount of misinformation going about Drug take about 12 hours to get into your system.a 25 patch is a relative low dose. If you are having all sorts if problems without it, for god sake call your dr. Patches usually have about 4 days worth drugs . If you are running out leave patch on for 4 days, and then you have 12 hours in you body that hasn't gotten to your blood system I have on a 100 patch and get a percocet every 4 hours: muscle relaxer and another pain medication every 8 hours, ## If you are having withdrawal symptoms after taking off a 12.5 patch, see a mental health specialist. Everyone here, please go to the web and search on the drugs you are taking, come back here and help people ## Hi Ron, Thanks for sharing your input on the Fentanyl ...

watson fentanyl 100 mcg patch
I have chronic back pain. My lower back has a compression fracture on my lumbar spine. I also have fractured vertebrae along my lumbar. I have neuropathy and a left foot drop due to my injury which happened in 2009. ## Hello, Alyse! How are you feeling? I am very sorry that you're in so much pain. However, this website does not manufacture, prescribe nor sell any medications or products. It is an information only resource. Are you currently on Fentanyl? 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. What has your doctor advised?

How Long Does it take for fentanyl 25 mcg withdrawals to start and stop
i have been on fentanyl 25mcg for about a yr. i am decreasing to 12.5 mcg for a week and then no more patches after. how long will it take to considering the info. will it take for the withdrawal to start and stop. i understand everyone is different. i will be taking valium 5mg for a couple days to ease the effects. any info would be great. ## Yes, everyone is different, so it really makes it hard to say, because it is going to vary. I stopped heavy doses of Oxycodone and Morphine cold turkey, after being on them for about 6 or 7 years for pain management and my withdrawal symptoms lasted for about a month. Hopefully the Valium will help. Has your doctor given you any other advice? ## Thanks for ur info. Several yrs ago I stopped fiorcet w codeine (on it for 4 yrs) and it took about tha...

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 ...

Liquid Fentanyl
Ive been on Fentanyl patches 200mcg for 10 years I think I need a stronger type of fentanyl. NOTHING else works. I use no other types off oills and when I have tried nothing works I have a cool doctor but he wants me to go to pain management to deal with this help $$$$but not doc ## Where are you ? ## Fentanyl is the strongest narcotic for pain that is on the market, there aren't any stronger options for you. Your doctor is right, pain management is probably going to be your best bet, as they have better training as to what combination of medications, or what other therapies, might help someone in your situation. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Does anyone else have any suggestions to add? ## Wow, where do you live? N.Y. laws are so strict with narcotics. Mothers across L.I. and N...

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...

Will Fentanyl Patch Show Up As Morphine In A Drug Test
will fentynal show up as morphine on a drug test i need to know if it will ## I am assuming you're talking about the fentanyl patch, is it a urine test or a blood test? I am on methadone and I have to give 2 urine samples a week..fentanyl doesn't even show up as an opiate in my urine when I have relapsed. I have sucked on a piece of a 100 mcg patch (NEVER do THIS it's extremely dangerous)..I have used the patch as prescribed amd it doesn't show in urine tests. ## Yes, on a test that looks for the specific drug, rather than just the presence of opiates, it should be detected as Fentanyl and its metabolites and not anything else. However, if the test being done is a non-certified one, then there is always the possibility of getting a false positive for something else, sinc...

started fentanyl 50mg 2 days ago with 15mg breakthru and pain is intolerable it safe to take 30mg roxicodone patch
I have had severe chronic nerve pain in my lower back from a botch-up surgery for 7 yrs. I was taking roxicodone 30mg with percocet 5/325 for breakthur til 2 days ago, my doc prescribed fentynl patch 50mg along with 15mg roxicodone for breakthru. having serious pain, is it safe for me to double the 15? I feel like I would be literally double-dosing but the pain is intolerable. I hope someone out there can offer me some good advice or a solution. ## Hi Juliette, Sorry to hear about your challenges with pain. Based on your description, it looks like the doc has substituted the percocet as well as 15mgs worth of roxicodone for the fentanyl patch. And this is just my theory but it seems to me that he's trying to taper you down off the roxicodone, perhaps as a way to keep your tolerance ...

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 ...

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 free
Just checking in after not logging on for awhile. Today is my 34th day Fentanyl patch free! I'm so thankful! I'm also back to my original pain level. Unfortunately I thought I could also go right into my hydrocodone cessation. I did. But I need it. Trying to cope for ten more days until my next appt ! ## Hello, Yvonne! I am so sorry that you are in pain, again. Has it eased up, any? When you go cold turkey off of such medications, there is a risk of rebound pain occurring, which can sometimes be worse than the pain you started taking it to treat, so you may be dealing with a double whammy, the rebound effect and your old pain returning. 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...

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...

Expired 5mg FENTANYL PATCH (circa 1999) vs MORPHINE 60MG - Still Good?
An expired 5mg Fentanyl patch circa 1999 ... Can this be taken in lieu of Morphine 60mg? Safe? ## No, that patch is very old and likely retains no efficacy. All medications degrade over time and this one is quite old. It would be best to stick with your Morphine, as prescribed. 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. Is there anything else I can help with?

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...

Fentanyl Transdermal Patches
I've been using the 100mcg/hr of Fentanyl Patches and I've been using them for a long time. They stick well and they last almost 3 days and I'm prescrbed every 2 days, so I get extra relief by putting the new one on @48 hrs with the first one stil on; and I take 100mg of roxicodone, but the pain still is killing me and I've looked on the internet at the Patch by Par drugs, has anyone used this brand and would you give me a critique on them; how long do they last? do they stay on well?? I get my script of 9 boxes Monday and I need to make a decesion thanks, lakebum ## HI, Can anyone tell me all the manufactures of Fentanyl with the resovoir gel? Was using actavis and it bearly last 45 hrs. ## You really don't want to use the patch by Par. Its just like a sticky adhesi...

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...

Fentanyl Does Not Last 48 Hours
I am currently on a Mylan Fentanyl patch 50mcg/hr. I was on 75mcg patch which worked well with my pain but the patches dont last 48 hours. After about 30-36 hours I start having major withdrawel symptoms and pain. I had these withdrawels with both doses of the fentanyl patches. My dr dropped my down to 50mcg to see if it would help but it does'nt. I have some Dilaudid for breakthrough pain but it does'nt work at all for pain or withdrawel syptoms. The dilaudid is basically useless to me. Has anyone had a Mylan Fentanyl patch thats doing this?? I saw my dr today and he's considering taking me off the patches and back to the pills again. This really sucks. The patches have worked well for about 10 months now. ## Very sorry for what you are going through. It is possible that yo...
