what pain medications can be prescribed along with diladud k/4 to help with pain?

my diladud is working but good enough on at least 3 days a week where i'm bed stuck., Is there another pain medication that can be added safely to help me through these days. These people have helped me a lot but sometimes i just dont know whether to speak up for myself or what to ask for,,thanks ## Hello, Bug! How are you? Of course you can talk to your doctor about the problem, no one is going to be your advocate, except for you! However, it would be a bad idea to try to ask for any specific medication, because most doctors will see that as being drug seeking behavior. It would be best to just discuss the issue with them and let them suggest a solution. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I wear a pain patch - duragesic to go with my dilaudid this way I only have to take th...

help for severe migraine pain current medications 100 mcg Duragesic and Vicodin

I have severe migraines I am currently taking 100 mcg of Duragesic patch changed every 48 hours and 5 10mg Vicodin. I have have bad reactions to preventative medications, chiropractic antidepressants and have built up a tolerance to pain meds. My pain is so severe I can't keep my food down. Does any one know if there is a higher dosage of Duragesic/Fentynal that would help with the pain. I am miserable and so sick I don't want to get up. ## Ask your doctor for vistaril it will cut that nausa down . It is both drugs giving you the nausea but you have to eat something .. Soup.. Canned broth ## Durgesic does come in higher doses. I've heard if 250 mcg. Be aware if you get a terminally ill disease such as cancer, this is what is used to treat it. Nothing stronger. ## I have canc...

Fentanyl patches

I'm in mass and just lost my blue cross that was covering the duragesic Jansen 100 and 25 mg patches and now im on mass health and they wont cover the brand name which compared to the generic is a big difference in the amount of Fentanyl. For example the 100 has 16.8mg of Fentanyl per patch vs the generic only has 10.55 by mylan. The 25 only has 2.4 i believe and the brand name is 4.2. That's a big difference to me when these name brand are barely making my pain tolerable. I've been on the generic before and they are definitely not even close to the brand name. My question is, I found the Sandoz brand generic that has equivalent amount of medicine in each patch but I cant find pharmacies that carry it or that will order it for me. Like i said im in Massachusetts on the Rhode...

No Duragesic In Los Angeles

My pharmacy and spine doctor are both very reputable. I went in as normal to get my 45 duragesic (fentanyl) patches in 50 mcg strength and was told pharmacy is out of stock and cannot order anymore! Each and every pharmacy says they have it and when I go in to get the prescription filled they say they are out. The range is Walgreens, CVS, hospital pharmacies, you name it and I have spent all day on buses to other locations. I live in SFV and Santa Monica. I called the Attorney General, the Governor, the manufacturer, DEA - no one will talk and most say they are unaware of the problem. All pharmacies tell me they are unable to order them. What is going on? I must be targeted for some reason and have asked. No one is complaining or posting any concerns. THIS IS VERY SERIOUS. I AM SENIOR W...

How are you feeling? Those can be withdrawal effects, according to the FDA, but they usually only last for a week, or two. Since it's been over 2 and half months, I highly doubt you're still experiencing withdrawal effects. Are yo...

Duragesic Transdermal Patch

Recently the Duragesic patch I have been using has been changes from what used to look like a liquid and now is just a small flat patch. With the previous design I was able to walk and do things. Now, even though I have had the dosage increased, I am in constant pain and rarely get out of bed. I am young so this concerns me. I am trying to find out if any company still manufactures this old design. Thank you for any help. ## Duragesic contains the active ingredient Fentanyl, this is a very powerful narcotic used to treat severe, chronic pain. As to the design, it may just be that your pharmacy had a generic from a different manufacturer and their formulation just doesn't work as well for you. Have you tried asking if they still have or can get the ones from the prior manufacturer? Y...

Need pain Dr in Dallas Texas for Duragesic patches

My Dr has moved. I am now without a Dr for my patches...I only have 4 left. Two Drs I went to do not prescribe. Please help. Thank you... ## Hello, Jeri! How are you? If you require such a strong narcotic for pain management, you'll need to see a pain management specialist and if you're going to doctors and just asking if they'll prescribe it, they'll usually see that as being drug seeking behavior and just tell you no. You need to see a new doctor and basically let your medical records speak for you. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in that area? This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. ## I went to a pain Dr. She was the worst Dr I have ever...

Durgesic 75 fentanyl transdermal system

Does anyone know anything about this. I wear this path daily and change every three days ## Duragesic Info Click Here ## Help, After 3yrs going off the duragesic patches 250mg change every 72hrs or 3 days...withdrwal is so bad thinking of checking into a drug rehab. clinic .Has anyone ever done this on this med ? Or any others , so I know what to expect...signed Scared Skerit? ## Well this is not a med that you should just stop abruptly, especially from that high of a dose. It can be very dangerous, you need a tapering schedule to stop using this med. This med is 80 times stronger than morphine, so you are going from a tremendous amount down to nothing and not only will the withdrawals be horrific, but as I said, it can be dangerous as well. Please talk to a doctor immediately. ## I WAS...

Stopping 12 mcg duragesic patches

My doctor has me try a 30 day supply of 12 mcgs of duragesic patches. So far, I've used six patches. I want to discontinue them and just stick with my percocet. I dont like how the duragesic make me feel and I miss being able to use my heating blanket as well. I have arthritis all over and it helps me tremendously with that and I can't use the blanket with the patch. :( If I stop using the patch will I withdrawal and will they be pretty horrible? If I have my percocet, will that help me with the withdrawal? Thank you! ## Duragesic is the most potent opiate available, so yes, stopping it may cause some withdrawal symptoms, which the FDA lists as possibly including nausea, fever, chills, diarrhea, depression, and rebound pain. The Percocet may help to stave off the worst of it. Ha...

Narcotic pain medication filled early

I am on 100 MCG Duragesic Fentanyl Patches. I wear 1 every 48 hrs. I called my prescription insurance company to ask how early can I get a 20 day supply filled. They said that I can fill it after I have used 75% of the script. How many days early is that? ## Hello, Robin! How are you? 75% of 20 days would be 15 days, however, if you're having it filled at a regular pharmacy, since it is a controlled substance, they may not fill it that early. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?
