Fentanyl 50mcg, Dilaudid 4mg, Nubane & Colace Inj.

tenkisses Says:

Can anyone tell me if the fentanyl 50mcg and dilaudid 4mg, which I had taken two of by that time along with an inj. of Nubane & colace caused me to have a horrific seizure within a half hour after dosing? I have never taken colace before and some meds alone cause me to seize. Need to know.

I'm very sorry about what happened to you.

However, I really don't think anyone is going to be able to give you a definitive answer to this. It is possible, thought not common and, if you've had seizures before, it could have been entirely unrelated to any of these medications.

Has your doctor ordered testing, such as brain scan, as recommended by the NIH?

If something causes some type of chemical imbalance in your brain, then it could very well cause a seizure.

Are these the only medications you were taking?

The FDA lists narcotic analgesics as having the potential to be habit forming and they may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

I had a stroke due to the combination of Dilaudid and Fentanyl . Don't let any doctor tell you they are safe to take together. Mine was over time. But first had immediate memory problems then after a week of being taken off it, finally, I had a procedure done with mild sedation. Couldnt talk for 2 months. Intense speech therapy worked. The doctor I saw was supposively the best of the best. No one questioned the dosage but me. By then,
It was too late. I still have memory problems.

Same thing happened to my dad. He cannot talk or move the right side of his body. Can we take legal action?

I have been on the FENTANYL patch, 75mg for over 10 years now. I have to change my patch every 2 days vs 3 days because that's as long as it usually helps. So my doc writes the prescription for every two days to be changed and not three. Sometines I can go for 3 days...it just helps if I get a few that don't stay on more than a day.
I've done really well in them, never abuse them abd see my Neurologist every 5-6 weeks.
I hope this helps!
Not sure if it can cause a seizure. Call your prescribing physician and ask your local pharmacist. They are extremely knowledgeable in these areas.

Fentanyl and Dilaudid don't go well together, at all! The interactions are endless.

I doubt it was the colace as it is a stool softener. I had a 20 minute grand mal seizure after surgery for a crushed foot 3 rods 12 screws. I was soo out of it on the pain meds that I quit taking my neurontin AND xanax at the same time. Within 8 hours I went into no memory mode for hours and then the seizure hit full force. You really need to have ALL your medications reviewed by one doctors. Sometimes you have to start ruling out drugs to find out where the problem lies. I can't take any fentanyl, I fall, walk , in my sleep, have zero memory. It almost killed me. I had to stop it and 2 other meds to get back to normal. Good luck!!!!
