Avatar n tn Prozac now 40mg and fentanyl 50mcg. and he is now talking in his sleep every night and constantly scratching at himself in his sleep.
Avatar n tn I had surgery and was given fentanyl and nearly 2 mos later still shows up on drug test. I only have 1 kidney, but I'm still totally shocked and it has caused me bad problems as the dr doesn't believe me when I tell him I did not take this from the street! I don't even know how to get this from the street per se! Please has anyone else had this issue with fentanyl?
Avatar n tn Even though being dependent on a narcotic is different than being addicted, the physical symptoms are the same. Fentanyl is a very potent drug and can be a little harder to come off than other narcitics.
410475 tn?1262942367 the test were run when I was still on fentanyl and the others like viocoden and norco. and, no I never drink. the viocoden contains a lot of tylenol which I know isn't good for the liver, but do not know about the kidneys, this is scaring me.
Avatar m tn Can you believe it, I was using for 15 years and NEVER was given a drug test? Sometimes I wished I would have and maybe I would have decided to get clean sooner.
Avatar f tn My pcp doctor drug tested me and claims NO drugs were in my system ! She claims i broke the drug contract i signed and wont see me anymore. How is this possible ? I demanded a retest and was told no, the dr even suggested my caregiver was taking them or we were selling the stuff ! Im going thru withdraw now, alone with no weening just an abrupt stop cuz she wont refill the script and dont know where 2 turn.
624839 tn?1221807899 It could also cause you to have difficulty in coordinating movements, and may lead to excessive sleepiness and stupor, and respiratory depression. If the Fentora is not controlling your pain adequately, the dose may need to be increased. But I don't think it's a good idea to mix it with Diphenhydramine.
Avatar n tn Please heed the cautions and side-effects and the long-term effects this drug will have on your health, your personality and your life. Avoid it at all costs if you are able! I would advocate stricter prescribing protocols for this drug, terminal cancer notwithstanding.
Avatar m tn Thanks for clarifying your concern. Sometimes we miss the true question and I apologize. The Fentanyl Patch is a very effective pain management medication - however it doesn't work the same in all ppl. I've heard your very complaint from others. I was only on it for a few days before I developed blisters from the tape. We tried everything for a week to treat the blistering - I'd hope it would be an answer - but my body said different.
Avatar f tn m sorry for what you have and are going through physically - and now the mental anguish of a failed UDS (Urinary Drug Screen). I hear your story so often here - and I hold my breath every time I have to take a UDS for fear my results will be misread - or a human error will occur. Most of us live in fear. UDS have become much more accurate in years past - the one factor science cannot control - the human factor, human errors.

Avatar f tn In your case I would look into of those over the counter drug tests and see if that might help you get your answer or asking your pharmacyst. I know it takes a full month for the patch to fully get into your system. Good luck.
Avatar f tn This medication shut down my digestive tract and created problems with my pancreas and the weight loss was scary and that is what made me quit. This drug works on the brain centers perception of pain and really screws with the mind. You may not be aware of how powerful these drugs are but they do take control. Please read up more on the effects of these drugs and stay tuned to the board for any help that is offered.
Avatar m tn Hi & Welcome, I have never heard of a treatment center specifically for Fentanyl. All of the centers I am familiar with or have heard of deal with drug & alcohol abuse in general. A drug is a drug is a drug is pretty much the issue. In other words, the centers deal with the disease of addiction no matter what the DOC. Do you have insurance and are you able to take the time to go into treatment?
Avatar m tn I was prescribed Fentanyl for pain and all I can write about is how drugged up I was. Mine was 50mcg and my mind had a hard time with the pain issues. Sometimes it would stop the pain and other times, I didn't know what day of the week it was. The worse part for me was the weight loss. I thought I was eating enough but this medication dulled my senses enough to lose so much weight, I looked like I was dying. I went down to 108lbs from 150 lbs.
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 n tn His care includes Fentanyl 100mcg/hr patches being changed every other day. His insurance has lapsed and the pain in unbearable. What financial assistance is out there for this patient? I need any and all leads as it is imperative that he get contunuance of his relief as his family has sacrificed everything. Many Thanks,Dr.
Avatar m tn It depends on the test that is being used and that the assay cutoff is for that particular test. The test for Fentanyl is specific to look for that drug and a normalized value can be detected usually 3-4 days after. You were given such a small dose IV, it may have been a much shorter time span.
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 m tn This is being written by some one who was on the Fentanyl patch and the fentanyl lollipops/ sublingual tabs for advanced cancer. If you want to life in a Fent Fog. There are also new restrictions on driving whilst on this drug in the UK. I don't know about other countries. If your not sure it's working then its not working. You either have pain or you don't. Find out all you can about this drug and then decide if you want it in your life .
Avatar f tn Yeah, what hab63380 said. Just because you pee in a cup everytime does not mean they're drug testing you, its just to check your sugar. They drug tested me my first lab and if its positive, they will do another in the future. If not, they dont do it again. You can always ask your doctor.
Avatar m tn Drug tests vary, and many are very reliable...but, I'm going to give you some advice. No addict should be in a relationship (unless married) for a year after they enter recovery. Getting clean is hard enough without juggling a relationship as well. Random drug tests and wondering about her behavior is no way to live.
1707536 tn?1334974077 In order to qualify for a clinical trial they give drug tests during the screening process and on each visit. Does anyone know if tranquilizers are tested for. The is REALLY important for me to know ASAP...thanks.
Avatar n tn Drug is a drug is a drug.
Avatar m tn That might depend on what dosage you are on. The lower dosage shouldn't show up at all while the highest dose may show up with trace amounts. At any of the dosages the amount of steroid you are getting is so small and the medicine goes directly where it is needed that very little if any can make it into your blood streem. I assume you are wanting to know for sports reasons, there would be absolutely no issue with Advair on an employment test. Asthma steroids are corticosteroids.
2010625 tn?1329372056 In the UK Fentanyl is a controlled drug and can only be prescribed by a doctor, Fentanyl is approximately 100 times more potent than morphine, with 100 micrograms of fentanyl approximately equivalent to 10 mg of morphine and 75 mg of pethidine (meperidine) in analgesic activity. Its a wonderful drug.
