19164880 tn?1473283520 See your Pain Dr for alternatives that may work as you will have on going pain. I have just come of Actiq and Fentanyl patch and understand your situation. I have decided not to opt for opiates except iv morphine if required for severe pain in hospital only for life threatening situation e.g. complete obstruction of the bowel. I have looked to alternative ways of pain management. It will not take the pain away only manage it.
Avatar f tn i weened myself off oxycontin in 03 without much withdrawl, but my dr. then placed me on 400 mcg actiq 5 times a day and 30 mg kadian once daily. the kadian never seemed like the problem, i could take it or not, but i could not go without the actiq.i always ran out b4 appt time and so forth. i realized i had a problem so i began to detox myself, and my dental bills were racking up from sucking lolipops all day. my dr. @ my clinic was and is a wonderful dr.
Avatar f tn My sister's doctor says he can't perscribe Actiq for her any longer because she doesn't have "active" cancer. She gets severe attackes in her throat (especially when she tries to eat) because of radiation treatment. Is there any truth to what her doctor says?
Avatar f tn Yes the actiq ruins your teeth due to the sugar. Its been quick I cold turkeyed from 4 abstral/actiq / day 19 days ago and that's me off 50mcg patch. Fingers crossed I stay off . If its too much I can slap a 12 patch back on for a few more days, but do not want to. I'm just too impatient to get this over and done with. Hope its not like the abstral/ actiq I could not eat for 5-7 days and lost over 7 pounds and had difficulty keeping hydrated.
Avatar f tn I was a nurse for years. I have been on opana and actiq for a few years now. I have passed every test for 3 years on my bi-monthly urine screen. All of a sudden I am showing positive for oxycontin and I have NEVER taken this med. Now I know that actiq,opana,stadol,and oxycontin are synthentic oipioids. Now I have taken a blood test for oxycontin only to make sure this is negative and a true false positive because I do not take this pain med.
Avatar f tn As for something that is as potent (probably more potent) and short-acting, you could talk to your physician about Actiq. They are fentanyl lolipops that work much faster than the standard short acting opioid formulations. You could also ask about hydromorphone or oxymorphone. I know oxymorphone is the ingredient in Opana, which is a long acting medication. Not sure if they have a short acting form of this medication and the same goes for the hydromorphone.
Avatar f tn Hi have done a taper programme for Actiq now down to 4 a day but bad cravings and withdrawal daily so I am going to stop them now. Has anyone been through this already and got any ideas for me to follow to make it easier. Its the craving that are the worst. Once I've done this the patch is next any ideas there too please?
Avatar f tn Ok so I have seen a lot of women that swear by preggie pops. I was looking online as to where sells them. but upon looking at each stores site they all say not sold in stores and to order them online. Are there any stores that actually sell them in store??
Avatar f tn A co-worker told me she got these lollipops from babies r us that are supposed to help with morning sickness. Has anyone ever used them? & if so, do they work??
Avatar f tn re supposed to help settle your stomach. Keep some with u. You can try chewing gum or sucking mints also they sell these lollipops called preggie pops u can try. If it's not helping tho ur dr can prescribe you something thatll help. Remember stay very hydrated it's super easy to dehydrate during pregnancy and u can end up in the hospital needing ivs.
Avatar n tn However, there are a few patients with chronic non-cancer pain that have been prescribed Actiq (the fentanyl lolipops) or Fentora if and only if all other treatments failed and they are experiencing intractable pain, also known as suicide pain.
Avatar f tn However, the new doctor is not registered with TIRF REMS to be able to prescribe Actiq that I have been taking for 9 years. I am post stage 3 breast cancer, double mastectomy, peripheral neuropathy and lymphedema to name a few of my issues not to mention I have tried every opiod on the market and I'm also opiod tolerant. He stated that he is not willing to register and that I need to find a new Doctor who is.
Avatar f tn I was on actiq 800mcg twice a day plus I could use fentora 200mcg, percoset, vicodin and tramadol because of my cancer pain for the last two years.Now I'm 7 days off actiq, 3 days off fentora, but still getting tramadol. WD is horrible.I cannot move walk and sleep?Does it end? Did I put myself in a right plan? What should I do?
Avatar f tn Hi I have stopped actiq/abstral now day 17 and tapered a 50 patch down to 12mcg/hr and will not replace patch after 3 days. Any suggestions on how to cope. Withdrawals not too bad so far but still have cravings.
Avatar f tn Lemon drops.
Avatar f tn Cool off. Take your clothes off, eat ice or ice lollipops.
Avatar f tn I was on Fentanyl (2 patches 150 total) and Actiq lollipops 4x p/day for break thru pain. I had no life. Anyway, when I got pregnant they immediately sent me to an addiction clinic to get me on Methadone. Methadone is considered safe for pregnancy. It took about two weeks to switch and I ended up miscarrying (probably for the best - I was not in the best of health). My point is Methadone gave me some life back. I was suddenly able to get out of bed and do some things with my family.
Avatar f tn Yes I want to stop the abstral which is the same as actiq lollys first, then try to reduce the fentanyl patch. I lie in bed most of the day due to pain and effect of pain meds making me lethargic. I have survive my cancer and want a life again. I have halved my abstral (actiq) having sweaty hot /cold episodes and 2 episode of very severe pain after eating. I get pain meds due to radiation damage which caused obstructions and adhesions and needed more surgery.
688620 tn?1227378284 If the patch is not effective, you can also try the Fentanyl lollipops, generic name is Actiq. The medication is absorbed very quickly through your mucosal membranes in your mouth. It works great for breakthru pain. But it is VERY powerful and you have to give yourself time to get used to side effects. Also, this may seem like a no-brainer, but I keep mine locked up in a safe as it is would be very dangerous if a child, or anyone not used to opiates, were to get ahold of them.
Avatar f tn My midwife says extra strength Tylenol is totally safe. For a migraine she suggested either taking it with caffeine (this is what over the counter migraine meds are made of) or together with a benadryl.
