decreasing fentanyl withdrawal help
Being weaned off of fentanyl. Just need to talk to others about it. I've dropped down from 100 to 75 it's been a month. Sometimes I have no appetite for days at a time. Now my whole body is aching really bad. I was put on this after I had sugery on my cervical spine and after I found out later that my back was just as bad and I couldn't stand the pain. They started me on a low dose and increased until I was doing ok. I just want to mentally feel good again. ## I am so sorry about what you're going through. Everything you've described are normal withdrawal effects, though. You will likely experience them for awhile each time you lower the dose. How fast are you tapering? ## My Dr says it will be a long process :(. I've been on the 75mcg for a month and a half. The...

On Fentanyl How Long To Wait Take Suboxone
i am on 100 mcg fentanyl patch every 48 and given the certain amount of waste each month with one or more galling off and whatnot i keep a couple suboxone from an old script on hand. how long should i wait to take a half an eight mg sub.??? thank you in advance ## To prevent them falling off, you might want to try using some waterproof medical tape to help keep them on, they also sell a clear sticky patch that can be used over them and it is fine to do so, unless your doctor has given you specific instructions not to. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Learn more Suboxone details here. As to the Suboxone, along with the narcotic Buprenorphine, it also contains Naloxone, which is used to help prevent the abuse of other opiates, while someone is under treatment with it, thus you have to be...

Fentanyl Withdrawal Symptoms
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 and problems with insurance and pharmacies
I have been on fentanyl / Duragesic since 2005 when i was not longer able to take oral opioids as my stomach lining was eroding since then the first couple years while i was continuing care under one pain management office i had little problem filling them other than then not having them in stock and i had to wait one day. Since i move to PA and then back to FL and now again back to PA i have been having non stop issues between the medicare insurance and prior authorizations some periods every month and now my pharmacist tells me that the script was written out to be taken orally .. has anyone else had issues with just about every darn excuse they can give you sometimes having to go through withdrawal for weeks on end? I am just wondering and if so who can you turn to in order to get re...

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...

Im in great pain . i'm a Vietnam vet and 66 years old . I have lot of nerve pain and severe bacj pain I cant find a doctor. I have been on fentanyl patches before 150 mcg , please help Louis Beridon ## Hello, Louis! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're suffering. However, it is illegal to obtain medications in such a manner. In the U.S. they require a doctor's prescription and regular doctor's visits to monitor their use. Have you tried your nearest VA? They usually have a pain management program. ## THE BEST AND ONLY WAY TO GET A FENTANYL PATCH PRESCRIPTIONS SEE A PAIN MANAGEMENT SECIALIST, BECAUSE IT IS A HIGHY ADDITVE MEICATION, NO OHE DOCOR OULD GIVE YOU A PRESCRIPTION FOR IT. I'M 56 YEARL OLD AND HAVE BEEN ON IT FOR OVER 4 YEARS AND I KNOW HOW DANGEROUS T...

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...

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...

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...

Sciatic Nerve
I've got a pinched sciatic nerve that has gotten progressively worse over the past 6 weeks. Finally went to an ER because the pain became unbearable. I had been trying yoga poses/stretches for the hamstrings. That really didn't help. I was in an ER yesterday, for about 5 hours or so, because after I had got up in the morning I was unable to move without excruciating pain in my right hip down through my right leg..I couldn't move on my own, and the paramedics that picked me up, OMG I was screaming and balling in pain.. Over the course of the 5 hours I was there in the ER, I got injected (through an IV) of FENTanyl 50mg (didn't help). About 40 mins later I got a shot of TORadol (30mg), didn;t help.. FINALLY, around 3:34pm, I got a shot of morphine.. OMG!! Was that the most re

So, I'm in a big big dilemma. For my own security and well being, I MUST come off my Fentanyl transdermal patch. I've Been using 50mcg/72 hours for about 6 mths straight. I have 3 of the 50mcg patches left and 4 of the 25mcg to help me taper off. I will no longer be using them anymore, just Norcos or oxymorphone IR. I'm absolutely terrified of withdrawals. My doc who put me on them has No idea what it's like to come off like this. Can someone please tell me if and how bad the withdrawals from going down that much will affect me?

Call your doctor now ## Take it from me if you double up on the fentyln patch without letting them take you up they will say you did it by yourself and let you go.I went to my pain ct. today and where I have been on the run from late last month I was in so much pain I had to take a few extra perocet which was a generic with ipo with a slash in the middle of it and it was not controlling my pain.I was doing back to back drs. appts plus doing mammagram where I have cancer in my lung breast and have lung cancer plus two failed back surgeries and beca...

sentanyl patch
what are the effects of sentanyl 25mg, patch. Are they dangerous? Who makes them? ## I believe you're referring to Fentanyl, which is also sold under the name brand Duragesic. It is a very potent narcotic pain reliever. That said, yes they can be dangerous if not used properly and they do carry the risk of side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and constipation. Read more: The name brand Duragesic is made by Mylan Pharmaceuticals, the generics are made by several different companies. Do you have any other questions? ## let me tell you something most people taking this will not know unless you are subjected to the nightmare i was for year while being prescribe this drug. for reasons unknown to me i was not able to fill my scripts for weeks and sometimes months.. finally...

Fentanyl Patches
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 ...

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 ...

Fentanyl Sweating
I am a 33 yr old woman being treated by Pain Mgmt Dr. for chronic pain as a result of 3 failed elbow surgeries and nerve damage. My current dosage is 50mcg/hr every 48 hrs with up to 4 oxycodone per day for break through pain. I know the patch is suppose to be a good medication for pain control, but I am really considering asking to change to a different medication because of the sweating problems I have on the Fentanyl and I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem. I am constantly drenched sinced I have been on the patch. Dr tried hytrin to control sweating, but all that did was cause me to bloat. I tried HRT for a year to see if that would help...no luck, still sweating. I sleep with only a sheet over me and window open at night and still wake up soaked from sweat. If I do a...

how long does fentanyl 100mcghr stay in your urine
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?
