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.
Avatar m tn It's definitely not the ibuprofen. I can take that every day with no rash, only when I take the prescription pain killers will I get the rash.
5135507 tn?1367163227 So, 2 years ago and after being put on the fentanyl patch and other opiates, lyrica for nerve pain, I had 2 more surgeries. A spinal cord stimulator that didn't work, they removed it and put one in with paddle leads...supposed to work better. It didn't either. So today, I think I'm 26 days fentanyl free...my dr was fired and they left all her patients to fend for themselves. I came off fentanyl, cold-turkey.
29837 tn?1414534648 Yes, it will work faster but it is not worth it in the long run. It is all being released at the same time instead of over a period of time like it says on the bottle to take in maybe 6 to 8 hours. Its pretty great while it last but when it is time to come off it will be really bad news. Good luck, I hope you find some good advise on here, it has helped me.
655875 tn?1295695107 I'm detoxing from fentanyl and oxycodone currently and it's a slow process. Each decrease puts me through a massive withdrawal. I have 2 more decreases before I'm off the fentanyl. 1. I sleep on the hard floor. I'm not sure why this helps, but it feels more comfortable, especially immediately after a decrease. 2. I take vitamins and I drink a TON of water. I feel dehydrated, so the more water I drink the better. My body feels like it is on fire from the inside out.
Avatar f tn ll be going down to 50mcg of fentanyl next month. My question is, will I have withdrawls if I stop taking the Percocet and just stay on the fentanyl as we continue to lower that? Thanks so much for your help.

Avatar n tn i have blood work done every 3 mths and it has always been normal. i am worried that the tramadol and ibuprofen could damage my liver. i only take 7.5-750mg vicodin. wouldnt it be better to just take the vicodin again?
Avatar f tn The Dr upped her patch to 100 mcg and gave her #1 Norco 1 3Xday, and ibuprofen. She is also on hypertension and cholesterol meds. Since she's been home for the last couple weeks her mental status has deterorated significally to the point we have taken over all money matters and had to lock up her meds cause she was taking them wrong. I would say she had some mild dementia before this last episode, but I would rate it as severe at this point.
Avatar f tn I went from 75 mcg Fentanyl to 50 without much trouble. Then dropped to 37.5 mcg. and had a really bad week. We were going to stay at the 37.5 for a few weeks to sort of stabilize but I was having trouble getting the script filled for the 37.5. (I have to go to a certain pharmacy because of my worker's comp.) Because of that the NP took me off the Fentanyl completely and switched me to MS Contin 30 mg. twice a day. I am definitely having withdrawal symptoms with this.
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.
16785591 tn?1451596681 About a month ago I was talking about trying to go from 75 µg to 50 µg of fentanyl. gave up stayed at 75. when I saw my primary on March 9 and asked if there was not something else he could do. he said have you ever tried Neurontin? I replied no. he wrote me a script for 300 mg. one tablet at bedtime. if no ill effects after two weeks increase to two. Will the first night was wonderful.
Avatar f tn The reason they told you not to take ibuprofen (and may have also mentioned aspirin?) - is because ibuprofen can have a blood thinning effect and therefore they want to reduce any risk of bleeding with your injection. I don't believe Tramadol has that same potential for thinning the blood, however, I'm no doctor or pharmacist, so I would suggest putting a call in to wherever you will be getting your injection and asking them, just to be on the safe side.
1658626 tn?1302456819 t like the addiction, the strongest meds I took before the patch was ibuprofen. I had surgery on my neck in 2008 and it seems to have created new equally as painful issues. A nerve slipped and wrapped around one of the discs and now the nerve has been fuzed into the bone and hurts all of the time. I am losing the ability to use my right hand. I can't miss any work and I don't know how to get off of the patch without getting sick.
Avatar f tn I was taking fentanyl and percs for severe back pain and decided that I was using to much, it was no longer working and I did not like how it made me a recluse so I quit 8 days ago. I have been trying to get by on advil and heating pads but it is killing me. Could this extreme pain be rebound pain and it will stablize after I go through the whole wd process? Could it be my addiction trying to get me to use?
Avatar m tn I need new info if there is any. Is sundowner still out there and are you off them? I am going through hell and wonder how long this will have to go on. Down to the 25 now.
Avatar f tn I've been on fentanyl patch 25 mcg and 12 mcg combine for 2 years for health reasons . Due to adverse side effects I have come off of them call Turkey . I am on day 5 and it is been hellish to say the least.
Avatar n tn I doubt anyone remembers me - I was on this site and going thru WDs/detox in 11/07. I know I wouldn't have made it w/o the help and support from everyone here. There are a few names I remember and a whole lot of new ones! I was clean until March of '09' when I had rotator cuff repair surgery and at that point in time I truely believe that the percocets I was given for pain were legit. I actually only took them as perscibed and didn't use all that I had.
1433578 tn?1283448368 I have been on neurontin, lyrica, vicodin, percocet, fentanyl patches, ibuprofen, and oxycontin as well as morphine/lidocaine suppositories. I am currently taking 300mg of neurontin 4x a day, oxycontin 40mg 3x a day, percocet 7.5/325mg as needed, and ibuprofen for my pain. I also take baclofen, androgel, ditropan, effexor, and methenamine for other conditions related to my spinal cord injury.
Avatar n tn The saline was the worst, and the others had too many side effects. Unfortunately, fentanyl is absorbed into fatty tissue, which means that if you stop taking it you have to wait a few weeks for the fentanyl to clear from your body.
Avatar f tn I have been on fentanyl and percocets for 3 years. I have noticed the past year or so that I am having depression, no energy, feel horrible, can't even do anything just so exhausted. I thought it was depression but the more I read the more I realize it is most likely from the meds. My symptoms just keep getting worse and worse. I feel terrible all I can do is cry. I need someone for support to help me through all this.
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 I have a massive period ache , therefore I took 1100 mg of ibuprofen . At first I had taken 500 mg tablet but it's been an hour and a half and it did not help , so I took an other tablet of ibuprofen of 600 mg . The pain is gone but I feel very tired , can I be harmed or die out of it ? Should I ask for help ? Or has anybody been familiar with it ? Please help me , I am a hypochondriac person and I also have OCD and use Prozac .
Avatar f tn I took tylenol this morning. I took Ibuprofen an hour ago . I coudnnt take it anymore. It was a one time thing and i feel so much better. Will my baby be okay?
Avatar m tn whenever i take even one 550mg (naproxen) ibuprofen and then drink, my stomach gets tender and bloated and i feel bad. i usually take a maalox or something like that, yet i never throw up from it so i don't know if that's applicable for you. i think it is due to the ibuprofen, but if you're not used to eating spicy foods then it could have disagreed with you, not necessarily meaning food poisoning. you should never drink and take NSAIDs at the same time.
3122657 tn?1357432602 Ibuprofen is bad for our livers. Try getting a massage if you can. Bromelian, a natural supplement made from pineapples helps reduce swelling but it takes time to work. Also, make sure you're drinking lots of water, and getting some exercise. Try some yoga too. Pot brownies worked the best for my back pain.
Avatar f tn I use lidoderm patches, Voltaren gel, a compounding cream, exercise, ibuprofen and ice and heat for the pain. I've done a lot of procedures, some which helped for a bit and others not at all. There's also a pain management forum here that you may find helpful. It used to be very active with a lot of regulars, like here. Over the past couple of years it has sort of become hit or miss, which is a shame. Still, you may get some help as far as your pain goes on that forum.
Avatar f tn I have a infected broke off wisdom tooth during my last pregnancy my face swelled up and I was out of Tylenol so I took a 800 mg ibuprofen. Bad call for me but I was in pain and it was only once and everything turned out fine with baby so I was lucky.
