Fentanyl patches sideffects and withdrawal symptom
14 Replies RSS
My husband, age 77, developed severe acute pancreatitis and has been in the hospital for the past 8 months. He has been on Fentanyl patches (the lowest dose) plus some extra fentanyl injections anytime the nurses thought he might be feeling pain. His pancratitis healed in 3 months, but by then he developed a huge back bed sore. From the beginning, even when they were giving him morphine at the beginning, before the fentanyl patches, he developed breathing and sleeping problems, with intermittent rapid panicky breathing spells. With the patch, he has had also halluciantions and was forever either totally sleepless or totally drowsy. Because of the breathing problems, he has now a tracheatomy. His immune system was also compromised and he had several severe infections, i.e. lung and blood...

fentanyl patch withdrawal symptoms and duration
271 Replies RSS
i have post surgical lower back pain. was in 50 mcg patch and had side effects and so decided to wean off. i finished with the 12 mcg patch a week ago and am still suffering from periodic nausea, irritability, daily joint and muscle pain, but the worst is the consistent restless legs. 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. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Fentanyl is a...

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 false positive
15 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...

will fentanyl show up in drug test as an opiate
181 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 ...

Red warm legs after stopping fentanyl
Post a Reply
My doctor switched me from 125 fentanyl patches to OxyNeo 80 mg every 12 hours on Thursday. I wore new compression socks Saturday and removed them at bedtime. A couple hours later, my feet and lower legs were red and burning hot to the touch. I went to the ER, blood work is good. Could the red legs be a withdrawal symptom?

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 ...

Can withdrawal start after removing 1st Fentanyl patch?
Post a Reply
I've been on oxycodone for almost 2 years, following a bad automobile accident. I became dependent and was taking upwards of 75-85mg per day. I'm finally on a step-down regimen, starting with 60mg per day for a week, then 50mg a day/ per week, 40mg per day/week and so on, until I finish 10mg per day for a week. I foolishly took more than I was supposed to this week (had a death in the family that put me over the edge). I can't fill my next Rx until the end of this week and was petrified of withdrawal, so I slapped on a 25mcg fentanyl patch. It's been 25 hours and I developed a terrible headache. Last dose of oxycodone was yesterday afternoon, 5/325. Put patch on at 10pm. Just took patch off at 11:30pm tonight and was wondering - if I start taking my oxycodone again tomor...

Fentanyl Patches Killing people!
69 Replies RSS
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 ...

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...

Fentanyl Withdrawal Symptoms
1646 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 patches lowering dosage
Post a Reply
First let me start off by saying, I have definitely reduced my dosage from 3 100mcg to 2 100mcg patches. I am currently wearing only one and so far so good. I am praying that I can continue to work my way back down. Unfortunately, my chronic pain may not allow that to happen sadly, doctors don't really have a clue what is going on with my knees. I believe it to be restless leg syndrome coupled with polio syndrome. Anyone know of specialists that I can see in New York .

how long does fentanyl stay in your system for?
20 Replies RSS
I was on 200 mg of fentanyl every 72 hrs for one month and got a urine test 12 days later. It showed up in the results but I did not take anything 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 ...

How Long Does Fentanyl Stay In Your Blood System
17 Replies RSS
I have to take blood test in 2 weeks. IHave to know how long,it takes for my Fentanyl 100 mg Patch to get out of my blood stream. I have to take it my last one off in 3 days is it enough time for it to leave my body and blood system. ## If you have a prescription for the patches, then there is no need to worry, you just need to inform them of this, when you go in for testing. There are only certain exceptions, where someone can be denied the use of these types of medications. However, for a blood test, Fentanyl is usually only detectable for approximately 2 days, after last usage. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Rusty asked how long does fentanyl take to get out of the bloodstream. He/she did not asked if you approved whether or not there was a legit script.

is it okay to chew a fentanyl 50mg pain patch
667 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 ...
