Common Questions and Answers about Fentanyl recreational

So I have a friend that squirted some fentanyl gel on my forearm today and I rubbed it in. It wasn't an excessive amount but it wasn't a few drops either. I obviously did this for recreational use. Anyway, about 3-4 hours later, I took a bath with my two children. 2 and 1 years old. Are they in danger of this spreading to them and possible OD ing??? Please let me know, I am very concerned.
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.
I guess it is a desperate attempt to find some answers. My dad died 3 years ago when he used fentanyl combined with drinking. I don't think he knew the effects that it could have and from what we know it wasn't prescribed. He had a history of drug and alcohol abuse. We don't know why he was at the place where he was found when he died and nothing makes sense. We know someone gave it to him, I guess we'll never find out who and the police don't care.
i have been on the fentanyl patch for 4mths now because of chronic pain. i started at 12.5 then within a month i was up'd to 37.5 i still have chronic pain and a lot a breakthru pain for which i take tylenol 3 and clonazepam (for spasms). i want to stop the patch because it does not work for me .... can i stop cold turkey ... so far i have got myself down to 25 and am prepared to drop to 12.5 but what process would i follow .. how many 12 patches would i apply before stopping completely.
5 mcg patches of Fentanyl and I need some advice. I weaned down from 37.5 on my own. But, I'm terrified about coming off and having no more meds in my system. I've read the horrific descriptions of the withdrawals and I'm coming unglued about this whole thing, as I asked my pain management doctor not to put me on these things in the first place. I am so angry I've been put in this situation. But, I let him talk me into it because of my unbearable pain situation.
Over this time my doctor has progressed through a long series of both narcotic and nonnarcotic interventions. I have been using fentanyl patches for the last 18 years. Over the years my dosage has increased in response to increased tolerance/decreased effectiveness and increasing levels of pain. I am now using 2 100 mcg patches each day + take morphine pills for breakthrough pain.
Hope no one who reads these posts abuses Fentanyl as mentioned by MedicDan, I wasn't writing for recreational? drug users or abusers but for people who had serious, chronic pain issues.
Nerve, bone and muscle diseases. I have been on narcotics for over 10 years now, with being on Fentanyl, over 100 mcg for the last 3+ yrs. I am done! I have still been in pain and the drugs have made me sick. I can't live this way anymore. There has to be another way to control my pain. I felt like I was being poisoned!! It took me two years of taking to my docs and calling Mylan the pharmaceutical company to gather facts to convince my docs that I needed to get off this drug.
Experts in pain treatment and drug abuse prevention say the growing use of long-acting pain killers like OxyContin, fentanyl and methadone has been a crucial factor in a nationwide epidemic of overdose deaths, largely from the abuse of such drugs.Nationwide, fatalities from prescription drug overdoses are the second-leading cause of accidental death behind car accidents and, in some states, are the leading cause, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
started off as just for the buzz n that. . . along with heroin/valium/fentanyl and every downer i cud get my hands on when i realised it took away the anxiety i had gotten from taking uppers[coke,ket,speed,ecstacy etc. . .] and weed. . .welli thought id self medicate so i wouldnt get carted off to the nuthouse or have to see a shrink!! then a friend of mine who was on the smack for 8 years started saying tramadol would mess my head up so started giving me weekly bottles of methadone. . .
I was prescribed the Duragesic patch, (also known as fentanyl) a treatment typically reserved for end-stage cancer patients. The advantage of the patch was that it maintained a steady dose of the drug around the clock, but the dose she switched me to wasn't exactly equivalent. By day seven off the patch, for the first time in my life, a migraine rendered me unable to walk.

if you keep it in moderation you might be successful in keeping your drug use recreational without catching any real bad psychical addiction. I only use on the weekends and think that its not that big of deal because im still healthy and excersise regularly. My post titled "im worried" i made because i think other peoples feedback is very interesting. Ive been drug user since i was like 14 and have seen a few people die as a result of drugs.
Cold turkey from fentanyl patch 50mcg for over two months now and off the morphine also for over two months. I had to, out of fear what these medications were doing to me. I was down to 108 pounds, had digestive problems and my pancreas was reacting to the pain medications and causing problems. This is one powerful drug to beat (8 times stronger than morphine) but it was devastating my body, brain and taking control and once I recognized the fear of what this drug was doing, I had to quit.
Just please be careful, just try my theory out, go one or two days without any oxy or fentanyl and you will see that not only will the pain be worse, but you will have flu like symptoms?? Good Luck to everyone on these meds.
I've tried explaining to my doctor that if I'm going to be dependent on narcotics I want to be on something that TRULY works and allows me to function and feel as close to normal as possible since the MS Contin barely works and makes me drowsy. I've tried the fentanyl patch but I was worried that the fentanyl would boost my tolerance even higher so I went back down to the morphine.
I am currently on 75mcg of Fentanyl patches. I have been on them for about 8 months and prior to that I was on Oxycontin for about 1 year. I am wanting off these patches but am so scared of the pain. I have been in the early stages of withdrawal in the past and am scared of what getting worse is like. I have another issue though. I have been self medicating my emotional pain with marijuana.
Once again the previous reply is correct in the pain meds. You should be on some kind of long term patch such as Fentanyl which continues to give good pain relief for three days then change to new one as well as short term such as Percocet for break through pain for when you have done things that cause more pain than the patch will not help totally. There is also Facet joint denervation that can be done to control pain.
He began (almost immediately) to snort his oxycontin instead of taking it as prescribed. He also abused fentanyl patches. This abuse went on for three years, and it was hell. After the third year, he detoxed and was clean for one year. Six months ago, he decided to go back on pain meds, for his pain he told me. His doctor prescribed oxycodone and methadone. I've seen him snorting his oxycodone several times.
2% The subjects had all been receiving continuous opioid therapy for 10 to 35 years. All were taking a long-acting form of morphine, oxycodone, fentanyl or methadone and one or more short-acting opioids for breakthrough pain or pain flares. They all also took additional medications such as muscle relaxants, sleep aids, hormone replacements and dietary supplements. Study Results Almost all of the patients (22 of 24) said their pain had permanently decreased over time.
neuropathy, but, these aren't always effective or enough (and some can't take) and when severe pain isn't improving, then pain medications like opiates are necessary to try and some recent studies are showing that with some severe pain, the higher doses of some opiates can be of help. Fentanyl patches are one of these that are used for such with success.
First off let me say that I've never used Fentanyl ever and haven't had to do a urine test. I do take vicodin for my pain. But what I wanted to say is kind of what you were talking about, I've been reading on the posts lately and it does seem like there are quite a few people that are failing the urine tests with the fentanyl.
I know I am banned from this board, but I had to look up fentanyl to see what it was. I happened to run across this site: They are giving out meds to worms!!!! check it out: http://www.opioids.com/fentanyl/subjective.
Fentanyl is NOT sideways from darvocet and norco! It is MUCH stronger! Ativan is the least addictive of anxiety medications. I think if you are still in pain you should continue with the pain medication, but be careful that you are aware of what you are taking! Fentanyl is one of the strongest pain medications available, I am not aware of anything stronger. It is stronger than oxy, morphine, etc.
I think a jump up to oxycontin or morphine, fentanyl, etc may be a little extreme and premature right now, though. There are many other choices in between, including narcotic pain meds paired with/without acetominophen and ibuprofen ( in the absence of varices for the latter). Most hepatologists recommend no more than 1 or 2 grams of acetaminophen per day for those with severe fibrosis or cirrhosis.
did you use recreational drugs in the past? Depending on what it is there can be some permanent brain damage from some of the more extreme/harmful drugs but it depends on the drug and amount of time you used it. I experience dissociation from the neurological disability they are studying me for as a criteria "tardive psychosis". That is clinically related to tardive dyskinesia which I have in advanced form.
Why don't you take a visit to the substance abuse addiction forum & read some of the profiles. Some start out recreational, like you sound, & others for pain. The addiction is real & you're headed in that direction. Read on that forum. It'll scare the **** out of you. No, no........it's everyday normal people like me & you.
Some people say to taper, but honestly, unless you still haven't quite crossed that recreational to occupational usage line (which most people do eventually, unless they go to NA or seek recovery somewhere), you're going to have 3-5 ****** days coming off any opiate, and then plenty of recovery time until you get your strength up after that.
Hope to see some more posts here people ! Well done to all of you I am at 715 days and doing and feeling great ! Again well done and congratulations to all !
A person going to see a Doctor to get drugs for recreational use seem to have no problems at all. What is wrong with this picture? I also wanted to comment on something Jaybay said. She was saying alot of people will use support communities and forums on the Internet to obtain information on how to get the drugs they want to get high with. This is so true.
