if used for 60 hours how long does it take fentanyl to cause withdrawal
2 Replies RSS
IF I ONLY USED TWO 50 MCG FENTANYL PATCHES, REMOVED THEN WITH SIXTY HOURS, HOW LONG WILL IT BE IN MY SYSTEM? ## Hello, Olivia! How are you? Fentanyl is a very strong opiate that can also be habit forming, it's over 80 times stronger than Morphine, so it's possible to experience withdrawals even after just using it for a very short time. The half-life for Fentanyl is approximately 20 to 27 hours, that's the amount of time it will take to reach 50% in your body and full elimination takes 5 to 6 half-lives, so that would be 100 to 162 hours (4.17 to 6.75 days). With will most likely start around that 50% mark. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Having only used it for a short period of time, they shouldn't be severe, but you may still experience chills, fever, nausea, dizzin... ...

how long will fentanyl remain in your body
Post a Reply
I was on hydrocodone, xanax, soma and I was given a fentanyl patch 100mcg due to a fall. It damn near killed me. Because of sheer stupidity, I cut this patch and took a minuscule amount of the gel, evidently an extreme amount went into my system. My nurse at the time (I actually had a HH RN) was there 30 minutes after I took it, I was having chest pain, was very confused. And a ROOKIE paramedic gave me Morphine! 4mg IV push was added to the prior "recipe/concoction" and it through me in to SEVERE Respiratory Depression. I was breathing 6RPM in less than a 7 minute ride to the ER / unconscious of course; and a Nurse Practitioner in her infinite wisdom without looking at my med list, or seeing I was taking medication for chronic pain gave me Narcan which could have put me in full ... ...

Hi I'm on Fentanyl Transdermal System 100mcg every 72 HR. for chronic back and I take Hydrocod 10/325. I have a T12 fracture Osteoporosis(bad) and severe after affect of shingles. My Dr said I should have no pain but I do it's like I'm not taking anything for this pain! does anyone have any Ideas whats going on here HELP it's been a year but only on Fentanyl 6 months. thanks ## Oh, I've been to those types of doctors before and I am very sorry to hear what you are going through. The simple fact of the matter is that no matter how strong a medication is, they just don't all work for everyone. It would be wonderful if they did, but they don't. Unfortunately, with all the medication abuse that goes on, some doctors are very reluctant to believe a patient in rega... ...

it is a patch that is called transdermal system and it says 25 mcg/hr and also says each transdermal system contains: 2.55 mg fentanyl Iam a first time user on this meaication what would it do to me????? ## Well, this can have some adverse effects. I am not sure if you have previously used narcotics, I know this should not be used by anyone who has not already built up a narcotic tolerance as it is a very, very strong med. 80 times stronger than Morphine as a matter of fact. My doctor tried taking from Darvocet to the patch 25s and I was so sick, for days, that I couldn't even hold down water, even when she gave me the strongest antinausea that she could. Some people love these, they can work wonders for pain, but they don't agree with some people, so you will basically have to ... ...

I have been on fentanyl 100mcg/hr, In vivo delivery of 100mcg/hr for 72 hours and I change them every 2 days instead of every 3 days so the amt of medication dosen't drop to low. I am wondering how the withdrawl is with this drug. How severe, how long it takes to get out of your system and if there is another drug used to help with the wean? Does one need to be hospitalized & under a doctors care? There are also other drugs involved- Hydromorphone 8mg,2 every 4 hrs,Tizanidine 4mg 2/4 times daily,& Baclofen 10 mg 1 twice a day. ## Ask your doctor about Suboxin. it is a truly miracle pill. you will have absolutely no problem at all going through withdrawal, i personally know for a fact that suboxin will supress all symptoms and will keep you energized, like youve never done fe... ...

Fentanyl Withdrawal Symptoms
1631 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 Patch Withdrawal

I sit with a 73 year old lady. I take care of all her meds and refills. I thought she had a refill on file...long story short,she didn't. She is on 25 mg patches. Her patch was supposed to be changed this morning at 9 but they wont be ready til mnday morning. Should I give her as needed lortab to keep her out of withdrawal or will she be fine til Monday from Saturday? ## HI Cheryl, I believe that the lady you care for should be fine until Monday since it's only a couple days and there should still be some of the Fentynal medication in her system. However, if you she doesn't get the medication Monday she might experience some signs of withdrawal ie: nausea, vomiting, insomnia, headaches etc..

Is this normal to feel like death ## Hi J, Sorry to hear about your experience with Fentanyl. While I don't think it's common to feel this way, Fentanyl is regarded as a very powerful medication. So it could be that your body just isn't used to having something so potent in its system. Also, from what I've read in other discussion threads, the side effects of this medication can and often do take their toll on the body, in a way that may make some people feel "lifeless", weak, or very ill. My suggestion is, if you don't like how your body is responding to it, then you should probably consider other forms of pain management. Perhaps something natural that can be used as an adjunctive therapy, alongside something weaker than Fentanyl (that you can more easily t... ...

I herniated a disc in Feb 2011 that didn't respond to a microdiscectomy, so was going thru intensive PT before deciding whether or not to do a fusion. Well, in early Dec of 2011, I came down with Guillian-Barre Syndrome, a rare syndrome where your immune system attacks your peripheral nervous system. Recovering from GBS can be extremely painful. My case left me temporarily paralyzed from the waist down and I've been I'm the wheelchair for almost 9mos. I have a wonderful therapist and am using my walker more and more each week. Anyway, I've been on oxycodone 5mg and tramadol since Oct and the pain relief has been minimal. So, my PCP (handling pain meds in lieu of ortho right now- not seeing ortho until GBS "gets fixed.") put me on the 50ug fentanyl patch. The firs... ...

Do I put patch on and continue to take my norco till the fentanyl patch gets in to my system at full strength? I take two nor ps 10-325 every 6 hrs and they wear off at 4-5 hrs so pain comes on strong. I've read that it takes 12 to 24 hours for fentanyl to reach its peak so till it kicks it will I be safe to take reg dose of norco? Do not want to go to sleep and not wake up! Scary ## It would be best to be cautious and check with your doctor, before taking the Norco with the patch, since there can be some risk of increased sedation or overdose. However, in most cases it is prescribe that way, the time released patch is meant to control most of your pain, then a regular release medication is prescribed for breakthrough pain. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic,... ...

Hello, friends! I started the Fentanyl patch 100mc today after OxyContin treatment my highest dose was 80OP up to 4 per 24 hours. I suffer from agonizing chronic pain due to severe nerve damage in my feet (medical neglect and misdiagnosed 3 years ago). I've build up opioid tolerance pretty quickly, so my doctor suggested the Fentanyl patches, plus, I felt "victimized by the system" - all and everyone plays the "Cops", lecturing me about the risks of opioids, treating me like a "junkie". Nothing against those that use these meds recreationally, but because of those very people, I will convulse in ER, and the attending doctor will insist on reaching my neurologist first before administering the pain relief... Finally, my doctor suggested these patches - I am MO... ...
