Avatar f tn More like a contract not to accept opiates from anyone else. Fentanyl is a powerful drug and if your using the patch form it takes longer to get in and out of your system should you have complications with it.
Avatar f tn I had to look up midazolam and that's the same as Versed. I can't stand drugs but I love Versed. Such a happy med. I've had Versed and fentanyl (for pain) during all 3 of my catheter ablations. During the cath they will have the pulse oximeter clipped to your finger and will monitor your O2 levels the whole time. If they think you're going a bit low, they'll just give you some oxygen.
1187071 tn?1279369698 I saw my pain doctor today and he put me on Fentanyl patch 25mgs every 72 hours. I have read all the papers on it and searched it on the internet. If there is any info on the patch that you don't read on the paperwork I was wondering if you could share. I put it on about a hour ago. My pharmacy gave me some things to go over the patch so it don't get wet, she said I can also buy them she gave me 2 of them.
Avatar m tn Just a quick FYI regarding home detox. Hyland's Restful Legs comes in two formulas. You want the one that contains quinine. Benadryl is contraindicated with quinine, so if you need a sleep aid try melatonin. Definitely spend as much time in a hot bathtub as you can. It really helps with the creepy crawlies and restless legs. Much as you probably don't want to eat, your body needs food even more during withdrawal.
Avatar m tn s are VERY mild this time around! I was really expecting to go to hell and back with this fentanyl withdrawal but so far it has been 10x easier than my oxy withdrawals I went through last year. Anyone have any theories why my w/d this time around has not been nearly as bad as last time? I have been dependent for about 4 months this time around, using mainly oxy/dilaudid/fentanyl but I havent had oxy in awhile mainly just fentanyl and dilaudid.
Avatar m tn Problem was, prednisone weakened my bones, tore my tendons, etc and after I was weaned off the prednisone, started experiencing horrible pain and also broke my hip and 2 ribs. Asthma sent me to pain management dr. I got up to 20/650mg Norco every 4-6 hours. I started noticing withdrawl symptoms. Chills, shaking, pain, restless leg syndrome and creepy feeling throughout my body. Dr. put me on Fentanyl 25mg, then 50mg. and cut my Norco down to 10/325mg every 4-6 hrs.
1279189 tn?1275244868 No, with fentanyl on board you will have no withdrawal symptoms from the vicodin. However, it takes two or three days for the fentanyl to reach a steady dosage in your bloodstream, so you may need to overlap with the vicodin a bit as your body gets used to the change. You will not get a "buzz" or as you put it, increased spike in energy from fentanyl that you experience with vicodin.
Avatar f tn Then a couple friends showed up and gave me a few fentanyl pills. The subs blocked most of that but I feel ok. I have to work again in 8 hrs. I have about 6 more pills of fentanyl. I know if I use them I'll get through work but I don't want to start a fentanyl addiction.i was wondering if I take subs instead if I'll just get sick again or if they'll help now. I need to work or I'll lose my car. That's the only reason I'm considering taking the fentanyl tomorrow.
1390687 tn?1281157239 How much of each were you on and for how long? The fentanyl withdrawal will probably be the worst... I had the roughest time with the fentanyl... and no withdrawals from the percocet/oxycodone... it all depends on the person and amount and how long the person has been using,.. good luck.
Avatar m tn My wife has been perscribed fentanyl patches and has been told not to eat grapefruit, does this apply to all citrus fruit ie.
1588890 tn?1297073916 s a month ago, Percocet 10 for breakthru and Lyrica for my Fibro. I am trying to quit smoking and HATE that gum! Was thinking about the patch but was wondering if it was safe to have both on? Any suggestion?
7157762 tn?1390862911 ve stopped taking my percs and taken off my last dose of Fentanyl patches. Wanted to thank all the folks here especially Ms. H who has supported me throughout this bumpy ride. My cold turkey wasn't completely planned. A friend of mine and I planned to jump together but things always seem to come up for us both. Less than a month ago, I went to my pain management doc for yet another refill. I opened up to my doc and issued my wish to be off the patches.
Avatar n tn I have been on Fentanyl patches for about 6 months and it was prescribed to wean me off of Norco 10/325 2 pills 4 x day after a surgery. I got as high as 75 mcg patch of Fentanyl every 3 days and then I developed some kind of allergy. The Pain Dr. says the allergy is to the adhesive, not the fentanyl. I am now down to 37 mcg every 2 days because the patches itch like crazy. I wake up in the morning and my patches are scratched off(even withTagederm) and there is blood on my sheets. My Dr.
Avatar f tn You need to taper on fentanyl. So basically you are on 100 mcgs. Your doctor will cut it down each month when you get your prescription. So maybe 75 next month, then 50, 25, 12.5. Are however your dr wants to to do. Fentanyl withdrawal is not fun. So I would say go slow. How much Percocet do you take? You may want to keep that to help you as you lessen the fentanyl. Then when fentanyl is finally done, you can do what is needed wor the Percocet. Do you know when you next surgery will be?
Avatar f tn I've been on Fentanyl 50 patch and sublingual fentanyl 600micg ( A bit like the Actiq Lollys)10 times a day for 3 years for pain as a result of Cancer and treatment. I now want to come off it by reducing the sublingual fentanyl(Actiq Lollys) first. I am now down to 4 a day over 3 weeks but have suffered sweats ,diarrhoea and anxiety in the process. My Drs supporting me but am I going too quickly ? if I go slower will there be less side effects or will I get the withdrawal symptoms any way?
1373852 tn?1307843048 I'm sorry I don't have an answer l, but similar issues! I too have been tested for autoimmune desease, and many other things. My hands and feet and even legs arms go numb. It even happened in a kick boxing class. I'm going for more test soon and Fybromyaliga was mention. I suffer from asthma and have taken several rounds of Leviquine for years. If this is the cause it should definitely be removed from the market.
5135507 tn?1367163227 Fentanyl is a good drug to treat pain for terminally ill patients , or ppl who need 24 hour pain relief. But drs are passing this drug out to patients who don't need it or they keep increasing the dosage until its almost impossible to get off of it when the time comes. I know, it happened to me. Then wnen the dr was fired after I was on it for 5 yrs, I was basically screwed.
Avatar f tn I had asthma since I was five and it is getting worse and worse coz my chest and lungs is feeling really painful whenever I do sports and I no longer can do sports as long as I want now. Every time after I had asthma attack, I will either faint, dehydrated, lack of energy or feeling extremely dizzy which I can't even walk straight. These symptoms will at least last for two hours. Will I get anoxia or other sickness other then asthma?
306867 tn?1299249709 Mary, Their is a rule of thumb for gallbladder disease. the 3 F's. Female, fat and forty. Gallbladder disease of course affects more than just those mentioned and of course I don't like the 3 F's. If GB disease and addiction were connected, their would be many forty something overwheight women at the pharmacy or waiting for their dealer to call them.
Avatar n tn Hi Allana, I am a nurse and also suffer from GI issues. I can tell you they usually use medications named Versed (which is an amnesic and makes you sleepy and not remember the procedure) and Fentanyl (an IV pain medication). These two drugs together produce the sedation for the procedure and you will be comfortable. Most people don't remember the procedure at all.
Avatar f tn I had an ostomy during my first pregnancy and had an extremely healthy pregnancy and daughter thank Gd and I really hope to be blessed with another healthy child and pregnancy....thx so much for advice!
Avatar f tn I have been in pain management for over 15 years and on 40mg of methadone. Dr. thought it was affecting my heart so he switched me to dilaudid 4mg every 8 hours. 2 days later I was in full blown withdrawels. After about 3 weeks I began to think I might live, Dr. kept telling me I shouldn't be having withdrawels. The dilaudid only lasted 2-3 hours, if I waited 8 hours I was hurting so bad the medicine was'nt doing me any good, besides it just was'nt enough. Next visit Dr.
Avatar f tn What should i do taper myself to a quarter a day and then not do any the day before and of the surgery? What should i do and will i be ok if i do that?
