I started on 100mcg patches and I'm down to wearing two 12mcg patches now. I didn't think we had liquid fentanyl here. Someone said Canada had it. I'm not sure about this though. Again, I'm sorry about her death and in a kind way I have to tell you as addicts we face OD's and other dangerous things everyday until we gain control. I wish your g/f had gotten that chance.....Take Care....
25 mg is low for someone so opiate tolerant but be very careful I had a horrible experience with fentanyl, I was up to 75mg every 48 hours and It is horrible getting weaned. I hope you have better luck and can be pain free!
Hi, I have read some info about Fentanyl Patches and need an opinion about my husband being on them. He is 83 and was on hospice using liquid morphine for about 8 months (he has heart and lung issues). He stabilized so he was taken off hospice but he was still on the liquid morphine. A few weeks ago he fell and ended up in ICU with neck pain and an increased heart rate that resulted in a minor heart attack. He is now in Rehab and they have him on a fentanyl patch (I don't know the dosage).
I just started Fentanyl 25mcg patch this past Thursday, NO RELIEF AT ALL YET, & I have nothing for BT pain. I see my doc this coming Tuesday. I'm miserable. I was up to 10-12 10/325 Norcos a day with no relief. I have DDD, spinal stenosis, pinched nerves, lumbar radiculopathy, L3-S1, plus arthritis in my SI joints. I'm just about ready to make a trip to the ER for a pain shot. I'm not sure the 25mcg is going to work for me. All it's doing is giving me a headache. I feel defeated.
I use the Mylan Fentanyl patches and wonder if they can be cut to help with tapering. I see a Pain Doc Specialist for my back and chronic pain...last disc replacement was in October 2013. All my meds are from him and used as prescribed, I'm just interested in getting through this weaning process quicker you know? I keep getting differing opinions online. Thank you for your help.
Have tramsdermal pain pump. Had 8 yrs of fentanyl 4 micrograms and dilaudid 2mg pumped in me for MV acct. QUESTION is how long will the withdrawal be? I'm on day 8 and only 20 hrs of sleep. With the worst case of RLS ever. Don't crave the drugs, but the racing thoughts r making me delirious. When does it get better. Snots, squirts and vomiting. Went on for 6 days. Liquid N-Quel works wonders also Amodium AD. Godsend.
the Hylands restful leg tabs from walgreens have helped me with the constant leg stretching cramps tingling thing.. may help you. Liquid Valerian root works pretty well for sleep. i had to take a dose and a half for it to knock me out though.
The reservoir patch gets its name from the fact that the fentanyl is contained in a reservoir. In Duragesic fentanyl patches and authorized generics such as the Sandoz fentanyl patch, this reservoir will be filled with a fentanyl gel." "There is no fentanyl gel in a matrix style patch. Mylan pharmaceuticals makes a matrix patch. A matrix fentanyl patch places the fentanyl in adhesive. There is therefore no gel to link.
My husband is on the 100mcg fentanyl patch and has been (on various doses) for 3 years now, he is going through something terrible, we are constantly in the ER because he has withdrawal WHILE WEARING THE PATCH. Recently his doctor decided that he might get in trouble for what he's doing to my husband and cut him off cold turkey.
For the past 3 1/2 years he has been on pain medicine, it started with vicodin then went to percocet, then nerve blockers(shots) then fentanyl patch, it has been a nightmare because the drug dosages just keep increasing, he has changed from being a strong tough guy to every little thing hurts, his pain doctor says with the results of MRI he could be in a wheelchair in a few years, I honestly feel that in the past 3 years the medicine hurt more than helped.
I ahve taken 10/325 percocet for years and recently my doctor has put me on fentanyl patches. She told me to try 1 25mg and if no help then apply 2 to total 50mg. I am wondering if I will suffer withdrawls from the change? Iknow it takes a while for the patches to get into your system, will I suffer w/d symptoms during this time?
Your the first person since I have been here who has said to injected Fentanyl. injecting Fentanyl and Dalaudid were my drug of choice. You don't have to do these for a long time to feel some nasty W/D's Everybodys body is different, if that is all the drugs you have done your probably looking at five days.....
I am on my sixth day without any fentanyl at all. I have been on it for almost 5 YEARS. I had a terrible car accident in 2003 and have been on as much as 75 mcg. every 48 hours. I have been tapering down since about March of this year, and did the "cut the patch" thing (with MYLAN only) on the 25's for about a month and got it down to about a third of a patch for about 2 weeks and then nothing. I am miserable.
Hi there, I currently take 60mg oromorph (liquid morphine) 300mg codeine, 10mg lorazepam, 200mg amitriptyline, 2700mg gabapentin and 30mg temazepam daily, what strength fentanyl patch would i need?
Hi , I am new here.... My doctor just put me on the Fentanyl patch yesterday. I have a chronic pain condition and pinched nerves, muscle pain, degenerative disc disease and sciatica. The dose I started is 25 mcg. Ive been on so many opiate meds and hardly anything touches my pain, so this is something I really do want to try because my quality of life is terrible right now. My question is this.
I am day 14 no fentanyl and day 6 no vicodins. This is something I felt in the first week, then it eased up ALOT. Now... it's a burning hell. I am sooo miserable.
that ditched me and gave me a tissue for my tears. And... a prescription for the DEVIL ITSELF!!! FENTANYL PATCH!!!! He said here is a 25 mcg to start, you will probably need more. This will work great for you. I was just so happy and excited to have someone help me that I didn't even look to read about it. Never heard of it and assumed it was all new. This was 11/07. It is now 1/10 and I have decided to get my life back.
I tapered from around 4800 mcgs' of Fentanyl taken orally via actiq. I have been on 25mcg patches for 8 days now. 1st 4-5 days really bad, but I'm getting better every day. How many months have u been on 12 's? Maybe I missed it, but why are you on them? Has whatever made u on them gotten better now? Ladysundown has some insights on tapering, as does manof faith, superglyde and bowhunter. Others here also have good ideas. Those listed above are the "patchers" I've met here.
reading your raw, honest posts mimics what i have been going through for the past 6 days. detoxing off 50 mcg of fentanyl. bone crushing pain, little to no sleep. dread nights because they are LONG and painful.. feel like a demon is trying to leave my body at night. twisting and turning on it's own. hang in there. i sure don't think it can get any worse than what we have already been through. keep hoping tonight is the night i sleep or tomorrow i will wake up free from the withdrawals.
People just need to realize that being on a 25ug/hr patch is still being on a pretty decent dose of fentanyl.....or opioid, for that matter. As far as fentanyl being like morphine, they are alike in their affinities to the mu opioid receptor and that is basically it. Fentanyl is metabolized into an inactive metabolite (norfentanyl) where as morphine is metabolized into one active (m6g) and one inactive (m3g) metabolite. And, heroin is metabolized into morphine.
I have had my mother who died of cancer left behind were to full bottles of liquid morphine, my mother in law a full bottle of liquid vicoden and my sissy 3 boxes of fentynal patches, There was know accountability for the very powerful drugs after they died, VERY scary
Now my doctor prescribed the Fentanyl Patch 25, and I am terrified to use it. It says you have to be *opioid tolerant* which I am not. Also I take the Ambien and Xanax. Doctor said *be careful* but still, I am terrifed after reading the drug side effects. I'm scared, and my hubby and son are mad at me because they said I *won't try* anything. PLEASE HELP--what do I do? Thanks so much.
They got me in , in the morning and I'll explain what happened with my primary dr n hopefully they write me something for pain. NO FENTANYL! I figure they'll want to hospitalize me and detox the fentanyl with suboxane. Ive heard once you've taken suboxane, no pain clinic, or any pain center will ever treat you again. IS THIS TRUE?
I've been on a Fentanyl patch for the past 9 years. I went from 175mcg/hr down to 12.5 mcgs then 5 days ago I stopped cold turkey. I don't take any other drugs except for my blood pressure meds. The withdrawals have been BRUTAL! I mean the most horrific thing I have even gone through. When will this stop?
the withdrawal has been hell every time I down step, this monday I plan on stopping all together with the Fentanyl, they are giving me liquid morphine to do it with, should I use it to ease the pain, or am I just setting myself up for even more hell down the line, also my husband has taken leave to make sure I don't kill myself doing this, as I suffer from suicidal tenancies, and to make sure I stay hydrated, please I need advice, what to expect, how to best set myself up for a safe withdrawal..
I have been weaning off fentanyl patches and i put my last one on today. Its exciting and scary....dont know whats ahead of me. I am still on the percs....weaning off of those also. I am down to 6 a day from abt 10 a day. I am weaning slowly reducing it half a tablet every week. Can anyone tell me if the withdrawals from fentanyl will be much worse after I stop applying the patch? I am only on 6mcg (I cut my 12.5 in half). Like I said...i have been weaning off slowly to this point....
who loves to prescribe more and more narcotics. When I came to him about 6 mos ago I was on the fentanyl patch. He added 30mg of methadone, norco, and dilaudid and kept me on the fentanyl patch. He is a total weird o and gives me the creeps. I want to get away from him but am physically dependent on the narcotics now. I need a plan to come off of the narcotics. I need to get away from him. I have the desire and the will to get off of the medicationl.
I currently have a cast from my hip to my toes on my right leg with hardware because of recent reconstructive surgery of the right femur. My Surgeons decided to put me on a 100 mcg fentanyl patch, I hallucinated and they lowered the dose too 50mcg and prescribed Norco 10/325 6 times a day. I also take Fioricet for Migraines caused by the Methatrexate and other cancer fighting drugs.
Norco (10/325) - Fentanyl patch (100mg) - Diladid (4mg). Every day for the last 5 years I have been taking these meds, which are prescribed. 400 Norcos per mo. - 240 Diladid per mo. - 100mg patch every 48 hours Fentanyl. (Daily doses: 3 Norco & 2 Diladids every 2-3 hours, begining at 5am till bedtime) I quit cold turkey 6 days ago and I am still extremely anxious and have terrible cold sweats.
