Sufentanil Overview

Sufentanil, sold under the brand names Dsuvia and Sufenta, is a synthetic opioid analgesic drug approximately 5 to 10 times more potent than its parent drug, fentanyl, and 500 times as potent as morphine. Structurally, sufentanil differs from fentanyl through the addition of a methoxymethyl group on the piperidine ring (which is believed to reduce duration of action[2]), and the replacement of the phenyl ring by thiophene.

Sufentanil 42mcg delivered intrathecal by pain pump

I have severe chronic pain in my back, hip, right buttock, thigh, knee, calf, foot. Much like Siatica but much worse as all nerves below injury site in mid to lower back are effected. For example,in my right thigh both the outer cystic nerve & the inner nerve that runs just under your carotid artery to the inner side of your knee are both equally severely painful. I have had a myriad of major surgeries, none least ng less than 7 1/2 hours & the 1st over 13 hours with 2 neurosurgeons working. It was in this surgery that I actually woke up, eyes were taped, on stomach, rear end in air, unabated, I just remember hearing the Anesthesiologist yelling oh s**" he's awake, I was screaming in unbelievable pain & trying yo pull out the tube that felt like it was chocking me, I...

iDDS change from fentanil to sufentanil, too much or not enough

My dr changed my intrathecal pump med from fentanil to sufentanil 5 days ago. The change hit my system on Thursday morning. I had feeling of weakness in my legs, lethargic, tired. My blood pressure was 139/ 85. High for me. I saw my dr and he reduced the dose from 80mcg to 63mcg. I am not better. I am now having sweating, diarrhea, and blurred vision along with the other symptoms. I have been on Sufentanil before but many years ago. I'm going to see him tomorrow and my question is was I over dosed or under dosed. He told me when he adjusted my dose that he thought I would need more and thar is why he wanted me to call in and let him know how I was doing. When I came in with complaints of over dose he was surprised. I have a PTM personal therapy management that let's me give myse...

EXPENSE

WOULD LIKE TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT TWHY THIS DRUG IS SO EXPENSIVE I HAVE AN INFUSION PUMP AND THE COST IS PHENOMANAL TO REFIL IT. ## Most drugs are very expensive, especially opiate pain relievers. This is a very, very strong one, fentanyl is 80 times stronger than Morphine, and this one is 5 to 10 times more potent than fentanyl, depending on the prescribed dosage, so you can see this is a very potent pain med, prices rise with higher dosages and higher potency medications, very normal in the pharmaceutical industry.
