Avatar m tn I kicked a 1600mcg a day fentanyl habit, then had some v=bad **** happen at work and needed ativan to get me thru. now i dont w=know if I had panic attacks 1st or ativan urges st.
Avatar f tn I would keep in close contact with your doctor as he can prescribe clonidine to keep your blood pressure from rising to dangerous levels, along with valium, ativan, or klonopin to ease the anxiety, shakes and jittery-ness, and also short-acting opioid rescue medication to help ease the transition off of Fentanyl and you would then wean slowly off of the short-acting opioid and do a short taper off of the ativan and klonopin (you're not going to be on those very long so you shouldn't h
Avatar f tn I've been on the patch 50MG. Put one on every 2 days, been on the same dose for 12 yrs. my body is so used to it, it does nothing to pain anymore, I'm also on 8mg. Of Diluadid 3xday. Will I have with drawls going from the patch to the oxy? I used to be on OxyContin like 15 yrs ago, I got weaned off of the oxy too on the patch, I had no with drawls from the oxy, my dr. Slowly weaned me, no problem at all.
Avatar m tn In my opinion for what it's worth, benzo's are really sneaky and scary drugs. I flopped from xanax to ativan to xanax. The thing is it wasn't even my DOC but when I detoxed they were more cautious getting me off of that than the opiates. I took phenobarbitol for a week tapering every day until I was at none to avoid seizures, and other non-appealing effects. It doesn't take long at all to get to the point that you can't sleep with it either.
Avatar m tn First off, congratulations on beayting throat cancer. My uncle and aunt both did and it's not easy. Fentanyl was probably a good med for you while going through that. Around here you don't hear anything about the Actiq. You also don't hear much about Fentanyl being used recreationally, though it happens rarely. I was given the Fentanyl patch after about 6/7 surgeries on my hand and winding up with rsd, nerve pain and more.
1855076 tn?1337115303 t think it does much,) and ibuprofen as well as a couple of prescription ointments and gels, and high doses of ibuprofen. I also use ice and heat. I get cortisone injections in my knees. None of this comes close to helping alleviate my pain. The PM doctor will prescribe me oxycodone for a few days when the pain is seriously making me lose my mind. I think we've all been there with that idea that crosses your mind that this just isn't worth it.
526311 tn?1229286330 Fentanyl (like oxycodone, ritalin, etc.) is a CII narcotic and as such, can only be dispensed from a pharmacist with a hand-written prescription, and is never permitted any refills. I have doubts as to whether anything could be done through an online pharmacy or faxed for the patches or the percs. I don't mean to sound like a pompous know-it-all, but working for Drs. for so long makes you pretty knowledgeable.
5597890 tn?1370629516 New pain doc increased my fentanyl patch to 50. And is trying a different type of epidural and seems more aggressive in helping me get my back fixed than the other who I felt like just a number. has anyone been on these patches ? Why Oxycodone 15 mg if I'm on this super strong patch. I've obviously built up a tolerance to pain meds. I noticed withdrawals when trying to stop the oxycodone even with the patch on. I assume I will be on this stuff for another 2 + months.
Avatar f tn From above you can see I stepped down from 125mcg to 12.5. Yes I had a few ups and downs but never like going from 25 to 12.5. I am shaking, anxious, have akasthesia, diarrhea and most of all I feel so tired I can't move....all achy. I don't want to go back up on the dose but I also don't want to suffer. I have. Been on this a year. Please advise! How long to get accustomed to 12,5? Thank you.
Avatar m tn ve gone with no types of opiate in the house, and the cravings were fairly intense. I ended up settling them down with Ativan, lots and lots of Ativan. Basically half a mg for every hour I still felt a craving, ended up having about 5.5mg or so of Ativan, and I also had a glass or possibly two of wine, since my memory of last night is a bit fuzzy. So I woke up this morning after blacking out at some point from all that **** and had some slight cravings, which i took about 2mg ativan for.
Avatar m tn I now have great pain in both areas. I do not know what to do. I am on fentanyl at 50 mcg every three days and about 4 percocets per day for break out pain. Really this does not stop my pain so I am at the point of thinking after a couple of years of being on oxy and now this to just get off it all. I am very scared that I am addicted. Since I am going to have a lot of pain either way I am wondering if I should just try and come off it all ? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn I told my doc, no matter how great they work when they work, I wanted off. So it was onto 25 mcg Fentanyl and a supposedly slow taper. Fentanyl, however, is not covered by my drug plan and I couldn't afford to get it for week so I used up all my percocets early again. I ran out Thursday, walk-in clinic doc gave me Tramadol ER 200 to help mitigate withdrawals.
913054 tn?1242955793 I have the sweetest PCP, but God love him, the max for him to RX is one Darvocet and one Barb a day and no sleeping pills(not that I want any Ativan and junk like that). I need a tad more than that, but don't want to get into too much. Well again, glad to be on this forum where no one judges or condems, God knows I've had enough of that in these past few years and still experiencing it.
Avatar n tn I have been off fentanyl and orals opiates for a month. I am having a hard time with anxiety, depression. how long will this last?
Avatar f tn I appreciate everyone's kind words and information. I have seen a good naturopathic dr that did all kinds of bloodwork, including toxins/ heavy metals. He also checked for food allergies. My patch is 25/and I don't take fioricet every day. One dr prescribes everything. He sent me to specialists that gave me different prescriptions but he ended up refilling everything for me so I didn't have to keep seeking so many different md's.
Avatar f tn 00 and took 20mg oxyg. So far so good. I have some ativan and some deseryl for sleep. I also have anti spasim medication that I took when I was being weaned off the patches. I feell fine. I have no pain in my neck which is great. I am just going to watch tv and read all day. Thanks for your good wishes and prayers. I CAN do this!
Avatar f tn Get a massage every day or other and go in jacuzzi once a day shower twice and heat pads where pain is ...... and day 16 get some gabapentin and soma and maybe Ativan ..... and forsure trazadone a lot of it 100mg-200mg to sleep . Slowly get off subs this way and beat the withdrawals as much as you can with soma and Advil ONLY AT THE END 40th day............god bless . ............ OR. YOU STAY ON SUBS FOR 3-4 years. But ......
Avatar f tn and yesterday I was going to go to the hospital and demand they put me in as inpatient for pain relief...my doctor prescribed me fentanyl 25mcg and is getting me in to see about gettiing an epidural this week. I really don't want to go down the drug route again (broke hip 5 years ago)...but i cannot last a day without something. Anyway, looking for advice, what to expect, I was terrified to put in on last night-but desperate for a decent sleep...
Avatar m tn Hi. After 18 years, over a couple dozen surgeries, and all that time on every narcotic you can name (now on Fentanyl patches and percocet) I want to quit all the narc's on my own terms even with the chronic pain! I was just in the hospital again on a high dose demerol PCA pump, then a fentanyl pump and I hated what it turned me in to.
Avatar f tn I took my .5 mg ativan and one benadryl for stuffy nose. Now wide awake and have to be up to work in 2 hours. Has this ever happened to anyone?? I also take my 12.5 zoloft in morning will this make me more jittery??
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 f tn Hi , im back, basically went c/t from 40mg methadone for many years. Doc. Is helping with ativan, clonidine and 75mcg fentanyl patch. Why does it feel like I'm on nothing. Could it be that I went from vicodin 1990 to1996 (6years) got up to ten 7.5 a day. Started methadone in 1996 to February 28, 2015 . Got up to 135 mg at one point around 2012. Since then gradually got to 40mg . First doc put me on Butrans 20mcg patch the same day he took me off 40 mgs Methadone. Complete withdrawals.
Avatar f tn I started 5 mg Celexa 5 days ago and the doctor gave me .5 mg Ativan for just in case. My question is how long until the Celexa starts working? If I use the Ativan too often will it effect how the Celexa works? How hard are these to come off of?
6815927 tn?1395511425 ve been on pain meds for a long time znd at high doses. And Fentanyl is a bit tougher than some of the other drugs. I tried to cold turkey off Fentanyl and oxycodone as well as ambien, ativan and more. I did not have the support of my pain doctor. They wanted me to stay on them and I was afraid that my tolerence would be so high that if something happened later they wouldn't be able to cover my pain. Then I tried a fast taper ... fail.
