I knocked about 2 weeks worth of dilaudid down my sink by accident when I was brushing my teeth yesterday morning. I saved 4 pills. I take 4mg-4x per day and was switched last month from morphine to fentanyl 25mcg patches every 72 hours. I have been on the dilaudid for 5 months. I'm very concerned about the withdrawal I'm going to go thru without my meds. Do you think the patch and a few leftover morphine pills from last month will help my situation? Will they make the withdrawal go away faster? I also have 2 subutex pills that are older. Should I take the subs or will they put me in a precipitated withdrawal with the patches? I don't see my doctor for 13 days. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Please help.

Please be careful with the fentanyl. I'm going thru some crazy s*** with my Dr & pharmacy over patches. Been on them for 6 yrs. Withdrawals from fentanyl is bad, bad, bad. If I had a choice, I would take Opana for my pain & get off Fentanyl for good. I had to switch from pills to patch because I was diagnosed with breast cancer and going thru chemo, i couldn't swallow pills- I kept vomiting...so the patch was something i wore instead of eating. As far as withdrawals go...try to cut ur pills & wean yourself down. Fentanyl will definitely help. But they're patch form so it takes 6-8 hrs to work. Fentanyl works just like Dilaudid & morphine, also extremely addictive.

Taking those meds will help but when a drug panel is done they will come up and your Dr will drop you with no weaning.
