Fentanyl equivalent to Hysingla

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.

Fentanyl Patch / Withdrawal Symptoms

I am now down from 12mg fentanyl patch to half 6mg. What are withdrawal symptoms? e.g. anxiety? As i do suffer anxiety anyway. ## Yes, that can be a withdrawal symptoms, others may include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, chills and fever. Learn more: Are you working with your doctor? They may be able to help you with some ideas on how to alleviate some of the symptoms. ## I've been on 150 mcg of fentenyl, yes that means two patches at the same time. I also take 15 mg. of oxy 4X a day for over 2 years. This is for 39 years of Rheumatoid Arthritis, since I was a senior in highschool. Two days ago my Rheumatologist informed me he couldn't write scripts for narcotics. I have no where to go. It's cold turkey! HELP! ## Also, because of my awful insurance, I have no where to go. Not a ...

Fentanyl Patches Killing people!

I would like to know WHY the FDA has not taken the Fentanyl Patch off the market? This drug is being handed out like candy. Anyone who is not terminal or under Hospice care or in a hospital invironment should not be using this drug. Why would a person be prescribed a medication that is 80 times stronger than morphine for a backache. I do not believe patients know how powerful this medication is. The warning should be labled in RED. When are you FDA going to realize This medication is killing while relieving pain! I know because it killed my son. ## Very sorry to hear that you lost your son, from use of this medication. As to the warnings, those used by the FDA are black box warnings, to alert people to serious risks. While it can be dangerous, since it is so powerful and often abuse, it...

FENTANYL PATCH

CAN ANYONE TELL ME HOW TO KEEP THE PATCH FROM COMING OFF AFTER SECOND DAY ? I SHOWER A COUPLE TIMES A DAY AND ON THE SECOND DAY THE PATCH WON'T STAY ON.THEN YOU USE MORE THAN WHAT IS PERSCRIBED AND YOU RUN OUT OF PATCHES AND THE INSURANCE COMPANY WON'T PAY FOR ANY MORE THAN PERSCRIBED, THEN COMES WITHDRAWAL? ## The information I received with my patches indicate that the patch should not get wet. I have the same problem. In reading other post, there is a clear cover that can be obtained to protect the patch from water. I have not researched for any sourses, but will soon. I will contact you again if I find a resonable sourse, unless I see another post answers your question. This drug scares me, I have expereniced the DT's with much weaker drugs, and I would not wish that 10 ...

fentanyl patch withdrawal symptoms and duration

i have post surgical lower back pain. was in 50 mcg patch and had side effects and so decided to wean off. i finished with the 12 mcg patch a week ago and am still suffering from periodic nausea, irritability, daily joint and muscle pain, but the worst is the consistent restless legs. it is driving me crazy. my doctor says that is not withdrawal. is he right? i don't think so. if it is withdrawal, what can i do about it and how long will it last? i am going crazy. ## Of course it can be from the withdrawal, your doctor might be surprised if he talked to some former addicts and learned the various things they suffered, when withdrawing from their drug of choice and you don't have to be abusing a medication for such things to happen. Learn more Fentanyl details here. Fentanyl is a...

Is it safe to drive and use fentanyl

If fentanyl is 80 times stronger than morphine would you consider it safe to drive and work on the 50mg fentanyl mylan patch? ## I would not consider this safe. And I'm sure your Dr, and the local police would agree with me. A friend of mine was recently stopped by the local police. He is on dilaudid for chronic back pain, he got a DUI. Be careful and don't take dilaudids and drive. ## It's a 50 microgram patch, not 50 milligrams, because it is very potent. That said, it is usually best not to drive, operate heavy machinery, or engage in any activity that requires optimal mental alertness, when you first start taking any new medication, until you are aware of how it affects, since it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, and sedation. As Frankie has ...

I was given 150 mg of fentany patches I change every three days also the doctor gave me Hydromophone 8mg six three times a day. This medication was given to me over ten years ago for fibromyalgia.

I have wing myself off half of what was persubscribe to me at the doctors office. My body is in so much pain everday no doctor want to help me. The doctor that prescribed this medication to me will not accept me back as a patient. What can I do ? ## Dear Rose, Sorry to hear about your situation with pain management.

Pain Medication Stronger Than Fentanyl

At the hospital with heart and.chest pain. already on a fentanol patch and its not working. is there anything stronger than the fentanol patch? ## No, Fentanyl is really the strongest narcotic on the market, since it's over 80 times stronger than Morphine. However, there are medications they can give you that would work faster, but on that the relevant question is, what is causing the pain? ## I need a dr in Binghamton area for my medications fentanol and Percocet my dr went out with cancer and the other dr is not weighting he scripts for anyone any more new York Binghamton vestal plead help ## Ask at your hospital for the name of a Pain Specialist, or Rheumatologist. General Practitioners only know what the drug reps tell them. Attending a set of pain self-management sessions at yo...

is it okay to chew a fentanyl 50mg pain patch

I've been prescribed fentanyl 50mg pain patches and i was just wondering if it's 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... some people need faster pain relief. That being the case don't over do it, and work with your doctor to ensure you're being safe. ## Keep in mind that fentanyl patches are close to 80 ...

Is There Anyway To Calm The Feeling Of Anxiety From Withdrawl Fentanyl Patch

I WAS ON THE FENTANYL 50 MG PATCH FOR A LONG WHILE THEN WAS PUT ON A LOWER DOSE OF 25 MG AND THEN 12 MG TO SLOWLY TAKE ME OFF, AS I NO LONGER AM IN PAIN. BUT I HAVE HAD FEELINGS OF ANXIETY AND CAN'T SEEM TO CALM DOWN. IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO TO CALM THESE ANXIOUS FEELINGS. OR DO I HAVE TO LET IT (THE ANXIETY) RUN IT'S COURSE?? ## Have you consulted your doctor? Sometimes they will prescribe a low dose Benzodiazepine, such as Xanax to be used for a short while. Other people have had success using something very mild, such as Benadryl. However, you need to check with your doctor to see what's right and safe for you to use. ## vERWON IS SPOT ON WITH ALL OF HIS ADVICE, ESP THE XANAX. Some people, like myself, have a paradox reaction to benedryl meaning that it makes them anxi...

fentanyl lozenges

I am on the 100 mcg fentanyl patch and 4 mgs hydromorphone for breakthrough pain, does anyone know about the fentanyl lozenges for breakthrough pain? I’d like to request my doctor take me off hydromorphine and change to the lozenges for my breakthrough pain, I’m wondering if someone is doing this already? Thank you ## In many cases, Fentanyl isn't doubled up due to the very real risk of overdosing the patient. It is a very potent narcotic, so a doctor has to be very cautious regarding how much they prescribe, and how frequently it is to be taken. The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. An overdose, however, may be fatal. Why do you want to swi...

Making the switch from years of fentanyl to medical marijuana

I came to my doctor and asked if we could try to decrease my fentanyl use (was 100mcg) and use medical marijuana in its place. Im down to 12mcg of fentanyl, and im coping, but the pain is worse. Im really scared when I'm supposed to stop the fentanyl altogether. I've been through the sickness of withdrawl before. An ER doctor didn't check my meds before he ordered Nubain. The nursing immediately counteracts against the fentanyl and i got really sick. I never want to feel that way again. Has anyone here done this successfully? ## I could not wait to get off the Fentanyl patches. They made me feel innebriated 24/7 and so my doctor decided due to sensitive issues we will discontinue it. Taper and discontinuation was a mutually agreed to action, it was consensual. I got pass and...

Suboxone use, need help getting off

I have been on suboxone for over 2 years now. I have attempted several times to stop using them but I haven't been successful. I take 1-2mg a day. I have tried weening more than that but suffered terrible withdrawals. I would like to know if anyone has been successful at this or have found another way to stop using suboxone. I thought this was a miracle drug for opioid dependency but its worse than opioid addiction. ## From what I can tell based on your description, I would honestly consider asking a pain clinic for assistance in tapering, since it seems to effect you so significantly. Just keep in mind that you definitely aren't alone on this matter. There are quite a few threads posted here with individuals trying to withdrawal from this dangerous drug. In the meantime you may...

Fentanyl Withdrawal Symptoms

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 7 months off after five years of using the patch

Just wanted to update and touch base with anyone wanting to stop using the patch or struggling through withdrawals. I was on the Fentanyl patch, ranging from 150 mcg to 25 mcg, for five years due to a rare debilitating, extremely painful disease called Dermatomyositis. This disease causes deep skin lesions and basically eats away the muscles of your upper arms and upper thighs and hips. It prevents you from doing anything requiring raising your arms above your shoulders, It also prevents you from walking up hills, stairs, etc. It eventually affects your lungs and swallowing. This disease crosses over with SLE and Fibromyalgia. I take 16 prescription drugs including a chemo injection and a med that is given to organ transplant patients to keep my body from rejecting itself plus the typic...

Putting Patches Over Tattoos

I've used just about every area on both my arm for patch placement except over a tattoo on my right arm. The tattoo is over 30 years old but it was done with a lot ink saturation. Can the patch be applied directly over this? I've never put one there because I thought it might inhibit the medicine from penetrating. Any help is greatly appreciated. This is my second post. ## Yes, you can place it over your tatts. My arms are sleeves and I am on 100 every 48 hours for chronic pancreatitis. ## has anyone tryed the new sandoz 75mcg transderm patch. just got them. And have been haveing bad stomach problems?? ## Yes you can put a patch over a tattoo I had one on my lower abbs and had no problem,but should alternate where you put it every time,arm upper backside,but not on the waist. ##...

Blue triangular pill no imprints

I found a pill that is blue, triangular shaped with rounded edges, it has no imprint on either side. The packaging had silver stars embedded in blue circles. Please help! ## I tried searching for these, using the packaging, but I can't find anything and without any markings, it is going to be very difficult to narrow down what is in these tablets. The packaging, however, leads me to suspect that it is some type of over the counter product. Do you know what country they came from? ## Have you had any luck identifing these pills. It matches some that I have found and I am worried. ## I suspect that they are something illicit such as ecstasy or fentanyl.

Fentanyl jelly patch

what is the difference between liquid and jelly types ## I'am on 75 mcg of fentanyl patch jelly form. I found when i used the other fentanyl patches with the glue all over them i would break out from the glue. So what is the difference between the patches and do they work as well. I was told to use a steroid nasal spray under the patch before applying it, but everyone i've asked has never heard of using the spray before applying patch. So i've decided to just stay with the jelly form. Has anyone else had this problem and do the patches work the same jelly patches versus the ones with glue all over them. I'm still not getting much relief anyway, i've had chronic pain for some time and i'm only 52 but due to all my health problems i really don't have a life any...

Fentanyl Citrate Powder...Made into a Compound Cream

Hello- I have had stage 4 breast cancer and a Bone Marrow Transplant, double Mastectomies, total Hysterectomy, 7 months of Chemo, 7 weeks of daily radiation, a 360 Spinal Fusion w hardware, getting another Spinal Fusion soon, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Nerve and Bone Pain...many other surgeries and autoimmune disorders. I have been using my Fentanly Compound Cream in a very low dose (micrograms) for over 13 years. I have now been told by my Medicare part D plan that the Fentanyl Citrate Bulk Powder lacks an Food and Drug (FDA) approved new drug application (NDA) Abbreviated New Drug Application and therefore is not eligible as a Part D benefit and is not covered under a Part D Prescription Drug Plan. The first denial was that Part D did not cover compound medications...then the lack...
