Verwon Says:

Have you consulted a doctor? Where they prescribed to be used together?

Since these are both controlled release medications, they are rarely used together, in this manner, due to the risks it can cause, since they both cause depression of the central nervous system. This is usually only done in cases of very severe, chronic pain, where the person has already built up a tolerance to the narcotics and is no longer getting effective relief from them.

Normally, if someone is using the Fentanyl patch and requires a medication for breakthrough pain, they are given a regular release or instant release medication.

Did a doctor prescribe these? If so, did one doctor prescribe the morphine and one the fentanyl? Odd combination, as they arent typically taken together. We're you given fentanyl for maintenance and morphine for breakthrough pain?
If a doctor is not aware of your having both these medications I urge you to NEVER mix narcotics or any drugs not evaluated and prescribed together by the same doctor or by two physicians both aware of the combination. If you're taking them for a "high", you would be taking a big gamble with your health and your life in generally. Mixing the two could cause respiratory failure.

My husband is on 75 mcg fentalyl patch, with 30 mg morphine sulfate for breakthrough pain. Although he can have as much as one dose of morphine every two hours, he only requires it about four times a day. He has had a very painful cancer, and is recovering from radiation to his head and neck. Since the radiation has caused severe mucositis and throat pain, he has been thinking the morphine helps to reduce the mucus in his throat as well as the pain. Is this likely?

Brim Says:

@ Jacq: I'm so sorry to hear that your husband has been enduring such a tough and painful disease, and my prayers are with you both. As for the morphine, it is sometimes prescribed to suppress the cough reflex, so it does have implications in that arena. I'm not sure how it actually affects the mucus itself, but it can definitely control cough. God bless!

In answer to the feeling weird with the fentanyl. No, I never have and have been on it for 10 years. I did experience nausea and vomiting on initial prescription and with every increase from 25 to 50 and from 50 to 75. It was prescribed because many pain meds messed with my head too much and my neurologist prescribed it after my head injury. I have just been switched to morphine sulfate er with my fentanyl.patch. The doctor decreased my patch to 50mcg/hr every three days. I was on 75 fentanyl.and oxymorphone but my insurance would not up my dosage on the opana/oxymorphone. Kinda scared about the switch since I had been on the one combo for five years now. Just hoping I have less pain days. I am also concerned
because I went from oxymorphone IR to the morphine sulfate ER .

Are you trying to krill yourself? Really is life that bad. Don't you people have boba fide pharmacists you're able to ask. I think anyone of them would tell you it's a no no. Phentnly is so dangerous as it is. I think only anesthesiologists should be able to administer it

Fentanyl caused me to throw up thick, white slimy mucus. When I check out why, they said it was medication poisoning! Pulled the patch, took 24 hours to stop throwing up! Hung over for a while too.

It is probably the fentanyl that caused the mucus in your throat. This happened to both my mom and years earlier to me. They backed down the amount given to my mom and the phlegm was a lot less. It didn't go away till she was off it totally!

Since you can't even spell fentanyl correctly I think you should keep your opinions to yourself.

I have lung disease & I do notice that when I take my morphine sulphate it makes my breathing worse & makes mucus harder to come up,this can cause me to get chest infections.
My Doctor also told me that morphine does in fact make breathing worse.
I now only take morphine if I'm in agony with pain.
Hope this helps you.

I am very sorry to hear that and feel kind of shame due my abuse of the same medications! If your husband suffer so much, i can only recomend that he don't need Morphine, maybe latest, but Fentanyl patch is best absorbed due oral usage. If he use pathc and chew about 3 howers, this would be 24h of great effect for pain. However, mst take care about dosage, 1/3 of patch from 75 mg, than if nothing happened he can use half of patch and it should be enough! Than add Morphine, also 30mg. I am addicted to Morphine and more and more often i use half of Fentanyl patch 75mg.
I have developed opioid tolerance, but from bad habbit, not as medication really maded!
It is my problem, i really want to help to all people who really need it due i also was studied farmacy, i know a lot about meds, of all kind.
God bless you and your husband and sorry on my bad English, i am not from English language area.

ALL pain management doctors are bona fide anaesthesiologists.. they are experts on pain pharmacology. As long as your pm physician has prescribed the medication and you are under their constant care you are fine. Always call your dr with ANY concerns or side effects. Do not EVER take these meds for recreational use and if you dont value your life enough to be wary of these meds you probably need a phycologist, not a pain medical physician. Hope everyone who suffers with pain on a daily basis finds a good doctor who sympathizes with your condition.
