FENTANYL 12
Ive recently being prescribed fentanyl patches to try out by my GP, the idea is to replace the ammount of tablets that i take each day. I'm worried as to when to start them as I am working solid over the next 7 days then i get two days off ? also I attend a pilates class to help with my spondalitis.

Liquid Fentanyl
Ive been on Fentanyl patches 200mcg for 10 years I think I need a stronger type of fentanyl. NOTHING else works. I use no other types off oills and when I have tried nothing works I have a cool doctor but he wants me to go to pain management to deal with this help $$$$but not doc ## Where are you ? ## Fentanyl is the strongest narcotic for pain that is on the market, there aren't any stronger options for you. Your doctor is right, pain management is probably going to be your best bet, as they have better training as to what combination of medications, or what other therapies, might help someone in your situation. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Does anyone else have any suggestions to add? ...

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... ...

iv pain medication for cancer patient
my husband is in late stage lung cancer with metastases to several bones. that pain is getting harder to control. are there IV pain medications that can be administered at home by an RN? we have home health and do not wish to change to Hospice. thank you for your help ## Hello, Jerri! How is your husband doing? I'm so sorry that he's so ill. And yes, there are IV medications that a home RN could administer, there are also skin patches available that contain a very potent narcotic called Fentanyl, so they might help him more, too. This is 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. Has his doctor made any suggestions? ...

Can Teeth Rot Because Of Oxycontin Use
ive been on these for about 7 years and was just asking coz my teeth are slowly getting worse also on oxynorm amitriptoline seratail co-codamol and have just started on fentanyl patches please help ## Your teeth can be affected by many medications, especially narcotics. The problem is caused due to the fact that they tend to sap the minerals from your body, plus they cause dry mouth, which allows more bacteria to sit on your teeth. From the medications you are taking, all of the narcotics, the Oxycontin, Co-Codamol, Oxynorm and the Fentanyl can cause a loss of calcium, as well as dry mouth. And the Amitryptiline can also cause dry mouth as a side effect. Many people on long-term narcotic pain management end up with severe dental issues and a lot have lost all their teeth and required de... ...

54 411 subutex 8mg
I have run out of options with "pain pills" have been inquiring about subutex as a pain reliever for chronic pain due to a spinal injury. Ive been on just about every pain pill there is and they just don't seem to have enough "power" to keep my pain level at a acceptable position. Anyone with factual information that I can present to my healthcare provider would be my hero. Thanks ## Hello, Lee! How are you? What type of factual information are you looking for? Anything that would be available on this site or others online is the same as what your doctor already has access to for information. There is nothing new I can provide you with. Have you ever tried the Fentanyl patches? It is a very potent narcotic in a time released patch that sometimes helps those who have ... ...

fentanol
nt 16 ## This is not Fentanyl. It is 600mg Gabapentin, or name brand Neurontin. It is used for various types of seizure disorders, convulsions and nerve pain. Side effects include nausea, headache, drowsiness, among others. ## As I recall, this isn't even available in regular pill form, they have the lozenges, and the patches, and that is all that is available anymore that I can find listed. ## That's exactly right, except for the IV doses available in the hospital, nothing else exists. ## That is what I thought, I even did a search and double checked. As I recall they had trouble getting the dosage set properly and stabilized, so they were unable to make it into tablets. They had a problem with Demerol for years, before they finally had a breakthrough and discovered other ways ... ...
