Avatar f tn I've done both and by far fentanyl is much, MUCH worse. Oxy is no cake walk but if you can handle fentanyl withdrawals you can handle oxy withdrawals. With fent I found the withdrawal period was much longer and more intense. What fentanyl dosage were you on? Why did you doctor refuse to fill?
Avatar f tn Anway, I have a severe pain condition and was suffering off pain meds for 3months and went to the ER and got on Norco and had 2 painful surgical procedures, one in oct. and one in Jan. So I have been on Norco since October and the mistake I made was taking at least one dose everyday and got hooked in a month b/c of my very high tolerance with the fentanyl. I am now taking 4 to 6 10/325 Norcos 3 times a day just so I won't go in w/ds. So I have no choice but to detox myself next week.
562692 tn?1216227079 I believe u r asking about tapering off the soma....soma detox can be dangerous and calls for a slow taper that would be best if ur doctor supervised it.....if u r wanting to quit all of these drugs then that is a different story too....again...a slow taper for the soma...maybe clarify which drug or drugs u want to stop?...the soma seems to be causing u a big problem and that dose can be dangerous..
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 By the way , I think you will find coming off of Percocet and soma a walk in the park compared to fentanyl. Fentanyl is notorious for being difficult to WD from. Due to the fat stores, it can take a while to clear from the body. Hang in there , it will get better !
Avatar f tn Great job on getting off of fentanyl. It's a toughie. Are you going to wait a few days before stopping the Percocet and soma?
Avatar f tn Can one still go into withdrawal even if they are still taking some of their pain meds..I CTd Fentanyl and Morphine and am now tapering Percs and Soma...I really thought that by splitting the stopping of my meds would not leave me with severe withdrawals..I feel like a weak person because I could not CT all of them at once...Thanks all..don't mean to sound whiny...just need reassurance if this is normal or not.
Avatar f tn Found a job I loved and was great at it, come to find out it was not the best thing for my back. I have been on Norco, for 21/2 yrs and Soma for about a year and recently been seeing a pain specialist, well he took me off of both and put me on a Fentanyl patch well he gave me 3, 72 hr. patches, He had to reschedule our fist appointment for "injections" and I ran out of patches and had not been taking my Norco or Soma since Sunday Aug. 9th.
Avatar n tn Just wanted to update everyone here and fist let you know that you can do it. It has been an interesting 3-4 weeks. I was taking 12-15 10/325 daily, soma, fentanyl 1600 mcg loli'd for break though pain..... and so on. I quit CT and didn't look back, 15 days then another surgery, back to the 10/325's but this time didn't take them as prescribed, I took less. Did my 10 days, then just stopped again. No problems, no WD's after 72 hours.
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.
6815927 tn?1395511425 I have Backpain coming from a car accident that occurred 14 years ago and i am on fentanyl 100 mcg q 48 hrs and percocet 10/325 8 daily mdd and also oxymoronphone 40mg 2 daily mdd... so i have been on a lot of medication and i too am talking to my pcp about decreasing my medication... i wish u the best and god bless...
Avatar f tn ve been on varying doses of the Fentanyl patch (up to 100mcgs at one point) as well as 4x350mgs Soma per day, though I often double and even triple that amount and also the 5-325mgs Norco 4x a day, but do the same as I do with the Soma by doubling or tripling that amount in a day.
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 10mg 6 times a day and Soma 4 times a day...I was on Fentanyl and Morphine also but quit those cold Turkey Saturday...I have Severe Panic Attacks at night..Paralyzing..that turns into Severe Depression during the day...Is this normal for Withdrawal?...I don't mind the physical aspects...it's the Anxiety and Depression that are terrifying me. Even though I've been prescribed these pain pills for a fractured back...I just don't want to be on them.
Avatar f tn It will be like getting almost home and starting the trip at the beginning. Please keep posting and asking questions and telling your story. It helps. All the best.
Avatar f tn See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep. Clonidine is very helpful for the creepy-crawly feeling and control of blood pressure variations. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter.

Avatar f tn You say you have been on weed, cocaine, dilaudid, fentanyl, hydrocodone, soma, valium, tramadol, oxycodone and methadone. Out of all those addictive drugs.....you only "need" the hydrocodone? Do you consider yourself an addict? The reason I ask you that is because in one part of your story you said you take 8 Norcos/day and then later you said you only take 1-10 mg Norco every 4 hrs and you can take as prescribed? Even if you only sleep 6 hrs a night, that leaves 18 hrs awake....
Avatar m tn i tried many many times to quit and failed. i could stop using, go cold turkey and suffer through that misery. i did it over and over. but i would always start using again because i had no plan. i can't stress this enough. best of luck to you. feel free to pm me if you want.
175688 tn?1297556647 soma is more like valium. all three are addicting, so really it's not a good idea to use it for w/d, in my opinion.
Avatar f tn I have used didlaudid iving but I have been using morphine with a healthy helping of fentanyl and hydro and have detoxed a few times to be my stupid self and go back ten steps. It is not easy to look life square in the face when it seems to hate me but as I say its not over until it is over. U no?? Hang in there and don't let this scare you some feel better on the third day not with me would that I be that lucky but it does fade and so does the depression as well.
Avatar f tn I am a chronic pain patient now for 13 years and I am 32 years old and I believe if you hurting you must consider all your options and go with the one that best manages your pain so that your quality of life improves. With the tablets you can always take a lower dose if your pain is under control and with the patch you can take it off but you cannot really take less without the possibility of causing more harm than good... thats just my 2 cents worth...
Avatar m tn I have severe chronic back pain due to an auto accident I was in many years ago. I've been on several different muscle relaxers including Skelaxin and Flexeril. Skelaxin did not help me at all but Flexeril did. The Flexeril worked great for many years until it stopped and I had to switch to a new med and that's when my Dr put me on the Soma. The Soma does work great but I struggle to keep it under control.
Avatar f tn I'll give a big ditto to everything Ray just said. I've used the fentanyl patch for nearly 4 years and it's been a lifesaver. You are going through terrible withdrawal, and your doctor never should have allowed you to quit cold turkey. The fault here lies with the doctor in my opinion. There was no reason for you to suffer through withdrawal. Find a different doctor, and get your pain treated. Life is too short to have to live it in chronic pain when you don't have to.
Avatar f tn As most of you know about a month ago I quit Cold Turkey Fentanyl and Morphine...Fentanyl is supposedly 100 times stronger than Morphine...Now I'm down to my last 2 meds...Percs and Soma...These I've been taking the longest...I tried a VERY slow taper...but found I was "clock watching." I couldn't wait for the next dose which increased my anxiety and irritability...and I was still suffering Withdrawals....Now I'm wondering if I shouldn't just cold turkey these..
Avatar f tn Ive been on 60mcg of Oxycodone and350 mg Soma almost 3 years ...I 've also suffered from Depression and Anxiety for the past 20 years..I'm concerned going off the Pain Medication will by doubly hard...The Oxy's and Soma helped me feel calm...but I want my life back...I don't want to be slave to pills. I just quit Morphine and Fentanyl cold turkey...on my own...now i want to quit the rest.... I think Id rather deal with the pain then to be a slave to these pills..
3039221 tn?1340461200 When I felt the distress, I assumed it was the Fentanyl and discontinued it immediately. But the distress continued so I isolated each drug I was taking and after 5 visits to the ER, wa assured that it was not drug realted - just COPD. What a relief! I was terrified.
Avatar m tn I had a drug test done and I am in pain management. I take Soma 350 and my test came back negative for Soma but positive for Meprobamate. I only take the Soma when needed. My questions are, how long does Soma stay in your system and what is Meprobamate?
374225 tn?1269899262 See if your doctor can also write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin is a great help for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose for sleep. Clonidine will regulates blood pressure, creepy-crawly feeling and will make withdrawals easier. Phenergan is good gor nausea. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter for mild sedation, sleep and muscle relaxation.
