Avatar f tn I was told narcan will put you in full blown w/d and it does depends on how stong and what pain med you are taking. Do not take any narcotic pain med while on that!!! I know that from working in the past will people detoxing on it, it will cause people to have severe thrashing...which is like major rls all over the body, vomiting, severe body aches, exustion, etc. Narcan is like antabuse for alcoholics. If an alcohlic is taking antabuse and they drink alcohol they will suffer big time...
Avatar m tn In the OR suite, more IV Versed, INhaled oxygen, IV Fentanyl (A potent opiate), followed by IV Propofol (This actually is what knocks you out), and the IV Pancuronium Bromide (For muscle relaxation, so the machines can breathe for you) It is common at times to administer reversal drugs depending on how much was given and your response when you come out of anesthesia.
Avatar n tn I have been in emergency medicine for 25 years and have give Narcan more times that I can remember. And to mr.lucky66 that wrote about being giving Nubain, when he obviously meant Narcan, while he was "fully awake" and that doing so is "against guidelines." That is absolutely NOT TRUE! Narcan can and has been given to many people that are "fully awake.
144586 tn?1284666164 Navy experimented with breaking the spines of cats and injecting them with Narcan. Surprisingly the cats recovered without paralysis. So they did a field study and injected narcan when the patients showed up at the ER. There was no evidence it helped prevent paralysis. I experimented injecting it into auto accident victims who had head flexure. What happens is amazing. THEY SELF SPLINT! In other words you don't need a collar (but we put them on). The head becomes rigid in position.

1091346 tn?1256926149 as I just had my dealer bring me a 4 day supply of H until I see my MD Tues for scrip refill on my oxys and Fentanyl, as I only have one oc left and my patch wore out yesterday. I tried not to call dealer tonite, but just 'til Tues. I am deathly afraid of wds, as I have high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and am 65. If this detox works as advertised, I can borrow the money from my ex employer. I just don't want to get ripped off. Thanks for all of your support.
Avatar n tn These docs, nurses and medics give narcan way too freely. I don't think he will have any residule problems and he should have never been given the shot. I was under the impression that it is only to be given when a person is out. I was given narcan shots twice when awake (without my knowlege) on methadone and suffered big time. It even left me traumitized. Once the medics gave me a shot a lied about it.
1087566 tn?1282448730 I have had great sucess with the Fentanyl Patch. I have used it for about a year now and it gives me around the clock relief for 48-72 hrs. You may want to do some research on the Patch or chat with your Doctor about it. I also take Oxycodone for breakthrough. Give it some thought.
Avatar m tn Yes you can that's what I did to get off my fentanyl patches and Percs. I started the end of feb and now I'm down to .50mg of subs. Just make sure you don't let the doctor start you on to high of a dose. Only take the minimum amount needed to help the w/d then stabilize on the dose. If you message me ill tell you how I did it. I guess we are not suppose to put tapering information in comments.
Avatar f tn I slept like a baby lst night (fell asleep before even taking the sleeping aid meds she gave me) at 8 PM (I usually am up till midnihgt) and woke up at 11 PM and took the sleeping meds and a celebrex (my back is killing me) and woke up at 7 to get my 2 little kids off to school and drove again to work. I meet with her today (she is closly monitering my success to make sure I don't relapse or tkae more opiods) She wants me to go onto Naltrraxone....
217599 tn?1202850952 But suboxone is actually narcan and bupe(not the whole name cant ever remember exactly how its spelled haha) and the bupe is the opiod and narcan is what will throw you into withdrawal if you take it to soon after taking pain meds and im sure you have heard if you do take a pain med while on suboxone you will go right into withdrawal which is completely untrue it is only the other way around so if you take a pain med and 4 hours later take suboxone you are going to be hurting but if you take s
Avatar m tn s a combo drug of buprenorpine (sub) and naloxone ( narcan). Narcan is an opiate reversal med often used to treat OD and in surgery to reverse anesthesia and wake up the patient. Any way it's a common form of sub treatment. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Rather than using a steady drip of some form of adrenalin I got hit with NARCAN! Narcan works against the opiates in your system and triggers an absolute chaos in your body. It was a surreal nightmere!! I felt as though I was encompassed in a cacoon of spngy balls with needles priking me all over my body. I looked at the walls and they had the same stuff on them everyone looked enongated except the jerk who puled my arm back and cracked it.
Avatar f tn When someone is nodding they are experiencing an overdose. I just completed my narcan training and learned 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 m tn He’s been acting more request the normal spending days now weeks in his mother’s basement in saying he’s playing Xbox but when we spend some time together he was nodding out and his pupils were pins
Avatar n tn This comes from the Naloxone (NarCan) that they added to the Buprenorphine so that it is less likely to be abused. NarCan is what they give you when you O.D. and it brings you back and throws you in to withdrawal in a matter of seconds. So, the only time you will have a bad experience with this drug is if you are not already in withdrawals.
Avatar n tn I am not sure what the circumstances are that surround your situation, but I do know that strokes are caused by a blood clot or a brain bleed. My mom just had 2 strokes and they actually gave her a morphine pump for her head because it hurt so bad. I do not think they would have done that if there was a chance it would cause more strokes. Keep doing your research though, I guess you never know!
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.
2049784 tn?1332143516 Suboxone has narcan in it which is not good for the baby. Subutex is what is used during pregnancy. Both have buprenorphine but subutex does not have narcan. The doc who prescribed you suboxone will continue to prescribe but will switch to subutex. It is best to do that then risk using suboxone or going back to opiates and it helps with pain which u will experience with pregnancy. It should be a decision you and your doc make. I would advise you to get an appt and discuss ur options.
Avatar f tn My buddy's friend has an old lady that was pregnant and overdosed and was hit wit narcan... Will the intense withdrawal effect the baby???
Avatar f tn t taking it for cravings but rather it was a combo pill of oxy/naltrexone that was invented in Australia (I took it for pain after I weaned of high dose dialaudid and fentanyl. It was a horrible drug that was the impetus to make me go cold turkey because I felt like my soul was being robbed. I'm not sure what it would be like alone but thought I'd share my experience for what it's worth.
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.
