Is there a way to find out what brand pharmacys cary without calling them all? I am alergic to most but Mallinckrodt does not break my skin out and need to find a new place to buy. ## Unfortunately, no there isn't.

Fentanyl overdose

My son used fentanyl patches for pain relief should i be concerned if old patches were not taken off when new patches were put on it wasnt noticed for 12 hrs afterwards ## Hello, Luke! How is your son? Has he shown any signs of possible overdose, which the U.S. FDA lists as possibly including vomiting, severe dizziness, severe drowsiness, somnolence, lowered heart rate and shallow breathing? This is a very potent opiate, so there could still be a risk, even though the prior patch was mostly used up. ...

Fentanyl Rx process

My husband was just told by his doctors office that there is a new process for getting his patches. They are telling him that he can no longer pick up the triplicate form, but they have to send it to the pharmacy via ups. The pharmacy is a quarter mile away, this seems rather extreme. Anyone else have this issue? ...

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... ...

How long does a Mylan 12mcg fentanyl patch really last?
2 Replies RSS
I am new to fentanyl treatment but no stranger to narcotic treatment for severe sciatica in my left leg. I was prescribed the 12.5mcg and the pharmacy gave me the Mylan 12mcg. My first patch didn't do anything for over 6 hrs. so I put another one on. Took a hot shower, went to bed and woke up the next morning pain free for the first time in a VERY long time. Since I was only given 5 patches to last me 2 weeks, I was wondering how long they really last. I've heard that there's actually enough fentanyl in each patch to last 7 days. Is this really ture?? ## Hello, Dewy5150! How are you? You really shouldn't take a hot shower or be exposed to much heat, while wearing the patch, it tends to make it release faster, which could result in overdose. The FDA classifies this medica... ...

having trouble with rashes and not sticking fentanyl patch. is there something new out there similar ## Have you checked with your pharmacy? I suspect that you may have received the patches from a different manufacture than those you were used to using. There may be a different inactive ingredient in the glue, that's causing the rash and inability to stick. And no, this is really the strongest medication on the market. You can, however, ask the pharmacy about ordering other ones in for you. ## marelen, I just stumbled on this site, I usually post on another. But, I had the same thing, rashes and the patches not sticking after wearing them for awhile. The doctor prescribed me a nasal spray called Fluticasone or Fluconase that I spray on the site were I applied the patch. It worked fo... ...

Fentanyl-Not Working?
3 Replies RSS
Hello. I am on the Fentanyl 50mcg patch taken the standard way. Change every 72 hours. I have been on the patch for almost a week. I am on the patch for excruciating thigh and lower leg pain due to spinal problems.Tomorrow will be my third new patch. My questions are: I have yet to notice anything that seems like pain relief. Nothing. Should I have noticed any kind of relief by now, or does it take longer than I've allowed it so far. ## Hello, Greg! How are you? Yes, you should've noticed some pain relief within an hour or so of putting on the first one. However, it is possible that it just might not work for you. Have you contacted your doctor about it? This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizzines... ...

12 Replies RSS
for 3 years my dr. was prescribing me three 60mg morphine sulphate er and four 30mg ms ir daily. when it became impossible to get MS in Florida, he switched me to Fentanyl patch 12MCG/HR every 3 days and 7.5mg-200 hydrocordone , 1 every 8 hours. the pain was unbearable and I felt terrible. cold sweats, shakes, could'nt think straight. when I asked him to increase dosage, he increased the patch to 25 MCG, but said there was more MS in the 7.5-200 hydrocodone than the 30mg tabs of ms. do you agree? Also, how does the patch equate to the Three 60MG MS er I was taking daily? Prior to this Dr.,after I moved 200 miles away,, my orthopedic surgeon was prescribing me Oxycontin, or oxycodone. When I called him 3 years ago and told him The new pain management Dr. switched to MS, he said its l... ...

Please help.Thank you. ## Hello, Daise! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. Do you currently have a PCP that might be able to refer you to someone? If so, that will most likely be the quickest and easiest way to find the help you need. I also want to caution you about asking a doctor for specific medicatio... ...

Beware of starting on Fentanyl.
1 Reply RSS
Five years ago I was prescribed the Fentanyl patch for a rare autoimmune disease that literally destroys your shoulder and hip and thigh muscles. The highest I've ever gone is 100mcg. For the first two years I was in heaven. No pain. But something else started happening. Yes, it numbed the pain but it also numbed every other emotion. No libido. No desire to be with friends or family. No desire to do anything but lay in bed and watch television. I would dose off in the middle of a conversation. I was also on very serious DMARDS which caused me to throw up, lose hair, etc. And like most of you, there were several times I lost a patch, or put one on too soon, etc. and ended up in withdrawals until I could get the new script from my PM doc. The worst withdrawals EVER. Three months ago I... ...

Withdrawals - help from Fentanyl
5 Replies RSS
I was on liquid Methadone for chronic pain for years and while on waiting list to switch to a new Pain center, I was weaning off methadone rapidly at 2mgs a day from 120 to 38mg. I was also on 20 to 40 mgs a day oxycodone for breakthrough pain. Now, last month, my new doc put me on 25mcg/h patch. Yesterday, he informed me that I am now ONLY getting pain management from him (understandable) and cut me off and did not prescribe any more oxycodone and I was to stop at 38mgs methadone. Bottom line, will a 50mcg/h patch I started today be enough for my pain and withdrawals? I am scared. ## Did you discuss your concerns with him? The Fentanyl is a very strong narcotic, over 80 times stronger than Morphine actually, but while it can handle pain very well, you may still experience some breakthr... ...

Fentanyl equivalent to Hysingla
1 Reply RSS
My Dr. has switched my from Hysingla ER 60mg/daily (taken for 2 years) to 25 mcg/Fentanyl 1/every 3 days patch for a short time while I go through a tumor extraction in the rectal cavity. having to be on serious laxitives and bowel prep for the evaluations have left me with little to no pain meds in my system and the onset of withdrawl symptoms. Anyway I'm 24 hours on this new patch and Sometimes I feel okay but mostly in pain that I wasn't when on Hysingla. Am I getting adequate dosage, does it take awhile to help? Also take Cymbalta 60mg 1/daily and Nuerotin 30mg/ 2 daily ## The laxatives are depleting in your body of the opioid more quickly because that's what laxatives do, they clean you out, especially toxins, which can be a huge reason many people have constipation.

I'm new on 100 Fentanyl patches for the second day - feel OK, I've been on opioids for pain management for few years, read a lot of scary posts on misuse and deaths... I am so worried at this point, that taking a shower scares me.. Can anyone suggest any "coverage" for the patch area, while in a shower???

I like the patch, it does work ( I intend to use it EXACTLY as prescribe), but I am, as mentioned before, simply paranoid, I will get the patch wet, damage, etc., Also, I read a "hot showers are a BIG NOs" - anyone tell me more about it???
