does 90mg aday compare to 25 mcg fentanyl patch
2 Replies RSS
My pain doc. changed me from 30 mg methadone 3 times a day to a 25mcg fentanyl patch every 48 hours since I started I have had nothing but hot and cold flashes / withdrawal for 3 days and almost zero pain control does anyone know what the conversion rate of 90 milligrams methadone per day vs 25mcg fentynal over 48 hours is? I honestly don't believe that the fentanyl is a equal dose to the methadone am I right or wrong any help would be greatly appreciated thank you very much ## I'm very sorry that you're so miserable. However, to be honest, there is no direct conversion for your doctor, or anyone else, to use going from Methadone to another medication. Methadone is very well known, as reported by the NIH, for causing withdrawals, regardless of what it is replaced with or how...

Fentanyl Can I Just Go Cold Turkey When Quitting
140 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 withdrawals. 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 withdrawals. 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/arthr...

fentanyl and Xanax false positive Update
Post a Reply
Well I was discharged because they say my urine came up for fentanyl again. However I went to another lab the same day as my second test and has testing and it came up negative. They don't care about the proof. I KNEW something was not right with the people at there office. I have proof but an injunction to have my chart cleared is 5 figures cost wise. I have weaned on my Percoset and doing great. I was actually only taking approx 2 a day. The only thing I wish for is there to be an investigation so this doesn't happen to others. I have been in chronic pain for years. I actually read that "some" places are doing this on purpose because of the insurance. They would rather have the CASH. I have found that this place has mostly cash based patients oddly. It seems like a DRUG p

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...

Fentanyl 26mcg paych

My sister is on the 25mcg Fentanyl patch. She is having problems with the adhesive. Her arm is turging red, puffing up and burning and itching. After the patch is removed getting the adhesite residue off has been a problem. She was using rubbing alcohol but is now using vegetable oil. If anything since starting to use the vegetable oil the redness, and swelling seems worse. She has switched pharmacies hoping a different brand of patch might help. She is wondering if Fentanyl can be taken in a way other than by a patch. Such as pill form etc. ## Wow! I am so sorry to hear about what she's dealing with. It sounds like she might be allergic to something in the adhesive. I experience those symptoms any time I use a latex bandage, I have to avoid them. And yes, it is available in other f...

how long does fentanyl patch stay in urine
187 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 ...

will fentanyl show up in drug test as an opiate
175 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 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? I have to pass pee test on january 20th. Will it show up then? ## P...

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
13 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
7 Replies RSS
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...

fentanyl and xanax false positive
Post a Reply
I supposedly tested positive for Fetanyl and Xanax on my first drug screen at my first appt. She says I wasn't under her care previously and she is not discharging me but I did not do either substances EVER. My pm doc prescribes Percocet 7.5 mg 3x a day. I also take Gabapentin, Zoloft, Buspar and Meloxicam and occasionally Trazodone and Flexeril. Not daily for those. I don't think it's likely that I tested positive for both of these substances and they sounded way TOO determined that I was guilty which didn't add up. I also have a 7 month old baby and only took pain meds for 2 days post C Section. After these major herniations + other issues I couldn't take the pain. Something was fishy sounding with how the girl that took my urine couldn't look me in the eye and...

is it okay to chew a fentanyl 50mg pain patch
665 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 ...

The man I give care to has had a fentanyl patch on consistently for 2+ years. For the last 3 months he has tested NO fentanyl in his urine! These specimens were taken WHILE he was wearing his patch.

tested positive for norfentanyl

Hello, I am a RN and DO NOT use fentanyl. I was going to my MD for chronic pain related to a back injury. He wanted a blood test for drug screen before i started taking Vicodin. I did it and it came back + for norfentanyl. I am perplexed. The only way i can think of being exposed to Fentanyl is for Patients who take the patch at work. I do give Fentanyl patches to my patients occasionally. Could skin exposure to the patch IE: me putting it on a clients skin cause the positive result? (No, i dont always wear gloves when giving meds!) ## It's always possible, but generally you wouldn't get a detectable amount that way. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Do you take any medications regularly, even over the counter products? ## It depends on how many patches you administer in a day n...

Can you have withdrawls from oxycodone when switching to fentanyl patch?
8 Replies RSS
Seven years of back pain with long history of muscle relaxant and more recently oxycodone and lorazepam. Docs finally did MRI and found Spondylolisthesis Grade 3-4 with bulging disc and appears vertebrae have already fused. Still being worked up by Neuro surgeon. Pain mgmt. just switched me from 10mg Vicodin every 4 hrs to 25mcg Fentanyl patch every 3 days with 7.5 Vicodin every 6-8 hrs for breakthrough. Started patch last week. First seemed to work okay but over the last two patches breakthrough pain has increased with increased pain down my legs. I get sweats then chills with pain in all my joints, arms, legs, hands, feet. Seems increasing my Vicodin and taking it more frequently is the only thing that relieves it but sometimes need 30mg of Vicodin in a short time-frame. Not sure if t...

fentanyl patch withdrawal symptoms and duration

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.
