I have my appointment with pain management tomorrow. I am on fentanyl patch 25 every 48 hours and norco 10/325 four times a day it isn't working and my quality of life stinks any suggestions what I could be switched to. Since it has to be done when I see him. ## I need help finding a stronger or different medicine for my pain management . Fentanyl patch 25 every 48 hours and norco 10/325 four times a day it wears off to fast and I can't enjoy my life ## I would be surprised if your pain doc. didn't put you a higher patch. The 25mg is just a starting dosage to see how you tolerate the drug. I was on a 25. every 72 hrs. plus narco's as needed, then upped 50mg every 72hrs. Now am on 75mg. every 72 hrs. plus narco's as needed and get good pain relief from that plus twice...

Fentanyl Patch Withdrawal Symptoms
16 Replies RSS
I have been on the 100 mg patch and percocet for my chrons and colitis for years. Last week I went cold turkey on my own recognance. I had my 2nd colostmy surgery which elevated my pain mostly, hence quitting. I am having insomnia and terrible joint pain but never had I been more clairvoiant inn years. I take Advil for my back and work out 4 days a week which helps sweat the toxins out. Exercise releases natural endorphans which are like a synthetic morphine so my specailist says lol. Its up to each individual to face their own truth. When your ready to kick, you know. I wouldn't advise you to do what I did but that's always been my personality. I quit smoking this way as well. Its not for everyone. Good luck all. After the storm comes the sunshine, TRUST ME! ## HI Iceman, Thank...

Duragesic Transdermal Patch
26 Replies RSS
I have been on the Duragesic Transdermal Patch for years. I've never used the generic form, so I can't compare the two. I've been on Narcotics for many years, due to a chronic back, hip, and knee condition. The Duragesic Patch has been more effective than anything else. I've had it all...Percocet, Hydrocodone, Oxycotin, methadone...Unlike a pill, the medication doesn't wear off in 3 to 4 hours. Unlike pills, I don't suffer from nausea. I think the benefts of the patch outweigh any negative results from other narcotics. I only have one complaint about the Duragesic Patch...It won't stay stuck on me. It always falls off. However, the maker of patch, does offer overlay dressings, free of charge. The overlay dressing is a clear, thin sheet, that is applied over t...

Fentanyl 7 months off after five years of using the patch
Post a Reply
Just wanted to update and touch base with anyone wanting to stop using the patch or struggling through withdrawals. I was on the Fentanyl patch, ranging from 150 mcg to 25 mcg, for five years due to a rare debilitating, extremely painful disease called Dermatomyositis. This disease causes deep skin lesions and basically eats away the muscles of your upper arms and upper thighs and hips. It prevents you from doing anything requiring raising your arms above your shoulders, It also prevents you from walking up hills, stairs, etc. It eventually affects your lungs and swallowing. This disease crosses over with SLE and Fibromyalgia. I take 16 prescription drugs including a chemo injection and a med that is given to organ transplant patients to keep my body from rejecting itself plus the typical

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.

Does fentanyl cause long term brain damage

Hi.. It is my understanding that some opiates like H cause some changes in your brain over the long term and I was wondering if this was the case with fentanyl? It is a regularly prescribed medicine so I was hoping no. Anyone?

will fentanyl show up in drug test as an opiate
5 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 ...

using fentanyl patches after they get wet
1 Reply RSS
People are talking on a site about sucking on F patches.if I lose one in the shower its no longer good after being can the patch b wet and then used effectively? ## Well, that is the fact of relevance here, they aren't using them appropriately and effectively. Sucking on them is abusing them, they are trying to get all of the narcotic out to get high, rather than using it as designed by letting it slowly release to alleviate their pain. The FDA classifies this medication as being 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?

Can You Inject Fentynal Gel
3 Replies RSS
I was prescribed 25mcg fentanyl patches, and i was wondering if there was any way of taking them intravenously for better pain relief? ## It is not safe to try and inject any medication that has not been specially formulated to be used in such a manner. These patches contains special substances that help control the time release of the medication and these are not intended to be taken internally and broken down by the human body. Trying to inject them could result in blockages, that could cause embolism, or stroke. That is, of course, on top of the risk of overdose, which is a very great possibility, since Fentanyl is over 80 time stronger than Morphine. Are there any comments or questions? ## thanx!!!!! :) ## My friend abused them and died Instantly. The funeral was devastating... it w...

topical pain medication for knees

is there a topical pain medication for the knees that i can add to fentenyl patch ## Hello, Laura! How are you? Yes, there some available both via prescription and as over the counter products. However, you'll likely want to stay away from products such as Icy Hot, since they may raise your body temperature and cause problems with the patch. It would likely be best to check with your doctor to see what is safest for you to use.

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

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...

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 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?

Desperately seeking a quality and caring pain doctor in the Phoenix Tempe East Valley area
1 Reply RSS
Desperately seeking a new pain management dr or personal care provider in the Tempe/Phoenix/East Valley are that will be considerate enough to let me partake in the "mandatory" drug panels by means other than urinary. I am a spastic paraplegic that is incontinent, I use self catheterization which can produce severe discomfort under normal conditions, let alone from a chair or in an uncomfortable position or place. I have actually been hospitalized for a condition which can be brought on called autonomic dysreflexia (AD). I have been on fentanyl and oxycodone for the last 7 years due to a bullet in my spine. My normal blood pressure is 120/80. My blood pressure has been recorded at 160/122 without the dr taking notice that things were going wrong even after my complaints. 160/122...

My ex-husband has had 5 lower back surgeries and has permanent nerve damage. He also has rods and pins in his back that one screw pushed on his spinal cord and had to be removed-lots of scar tissue. He's having a neurologist for many years. My ex has been on fentanyl 100 patch putting a new patch every 48 hours and oxycotin 5 was 6 times a day now he has been cut to 4 a day. His doctor won't give him any higher dosage and in extreme debilitating pain. He was in pain management years ago, but the doctor changed his percocet he took then and put him on morphine. He took to many for the week he was on it. It wasn't working and let pain management doctor know it and was thrown out of pain management. He of course is addicted. His meds of course aren't working very well any m...

fentanyl 75 not enough. Will Pain Doc increase dose?
2 Replies RSS
These past weeks have been very difficult pain-wise. I fell on ice and injured major joint. I am prescribed Fentanyl 75 (matrix) patches for my DDD/DJD, one every 48 hours. I've cutting one up into quarters to get additional pain relief. I will often use 1/4 extra patch, in addition to the one full patch. Now I cannot tolerate anything less! My pain is bad, but now I'm going to be a little short before next refill. If I tell my Pain Management Doc about this on my appointment, will he kick me out, or will he help me? What I really need is a higher dose for my pain. ## Hello, DNvest! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. It really would have been best to inform your doctor ahead of time that your current dosage was no longer handling your pain. There is no way ...

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...
