Hello At pain clinic recently and they changing me from fentynal 75mcg 1 every 3 days to embeda 60. The pharmacy having problems filling this due to work comp restrictions so they send me HCD 30mg until they can get embeda filled. Is this equivalent in pain reduction as the fentynal? reason i ask is im in alot more pain than usual. It takes effort to walk, my knees, hips, back, shoulders hurt really bad, Im currently taking this medication because of problems with knees,hips, back and right shoulder.

OT os very doubtful that the pain relief is equivalent.

Fentanyl is really the strongest narcotic analgesic on the market, it is 80 times stronger than Morphine, which is what is in the Embeda.

The Hydrocodone is yet another step down on the pain relief scale, from the Morphine.

I mean they can hit an equal dosage for pain reduction, by having you take the right number of pills at the appropriate time intervals, but it seems you would have to take a lot of them to reach the efficacy of the Morphine or the Fentanyl.

Did your doctor okay this switch, while you are waiting for them to get the Embeda in?

Yes I usually see his assistant who writes or changes my meds. i went back a week later because im in so much pain and he wasnt in but i got message back to take ibuprofen with it, HaHaHa what a joke that is, i am on 200mg of celebrex with the hcd 30mg. the only relief i get is when i take 15mg of percocet with the hcd that i had before they moved me to fentynal. I seen all the bad side effects that go along with embeda so i told them up there i wasnt going to go with embeda and they sent message that they will change these meds when i go back in 3 very long and miserable weeks. Thanks for the response

If i were you i would report your doctors behaviour to athoritys because going down so ströngly in consumption of opioids, is associated with mayor withdrawal syndrome such as increesed pain, increased well being, feeling ill, feel frozen/fiver... alll thsi, including stress reactions could potentialy hurt you general condition profonded. This is not a very friendly or in sience aproved shortage of opioids, in that little time that he gave you.

My general tip to you is to include (if your anames supports the use of) : paracetamol, diklofenak or other NSAID -drug, Possibly addition of a sedative in small doesage, and/or considering Lyrica (Pregablin) Since your pain problems seems so server you should or your doctor should consult an antheologist specialist becase chronic pain is a very hard kind of pain to get rid of in many cases, and your main drug opioids might not be what you need, depending of your pain anamnes.
