Avatar m tn Oral 24-hour Morphine (mg/day) Fentanyl Patch (mcg/hr) 225 to 314 mg/day 75 mcg/hr However, this is just a calculation based on the limited medical information I was presented. Since I do not have your liver and kidney status, it will be difficult for me to recommend the exact dosing regimen. Please consult your provider using this as a guideline. 2. If you are on Opana ER 30mg, why are you still taking Dilaudid?
Avatar n tn I have never achieved any relief from PO Dilaudid,however, when in the hospital, the IV form is the only med that gives me pain relief. I am to see my PM doctor soon, and was curious as to this being a good option for me to discuss with him, or if anyone has any other options regarding BT meds. Thank you for any help you could send my way, and good luck to the rest of you sufferers.
Avatar f tn Is there a chart that I can use to convert fentanyl patch strength to the Opana Er strength?
Avatar n tn My GP started me on 50 mcg of levothyroxine. I also take tramadol and fentanyl patch for chronic pain, and oramorph occasionally for breakthrough pain. Since I started levothyroxine, I went immediately from being cold all the time, to perspiring profusely. My blood pressure has shot up, and is around the 190/100 mark or thereabouts. I have horrible;le tinnitus, and my chest aches, and generally I feel weird. Is it possible my dose is too high for starters.
Avatar f tn But I think the Fentanyl may be covering the hydrocodone withdrawal. Fentanyl is very strong and the withdrawals can be long and difficult. Maybe you are one of the lucky ones but it's possible that 'it just hasn't hit you yet. I found the first few drops of the Fentanyl were easy but the lower I got the harder it became. I hope you can escape them and find a way to manage your pain.
2066663 tn?1331993339 on the 5th day i got upto 40 mills of methadone and it all calmed down so thats the stage im at now 40 mills of meth then im coming of the meth and going onto sebetex next but i hope the change this time isnt going to be as bad as the fentanyl change iv come of off just about every drug in my time but that realy was the worst time iv ever had sorry i just got a phone call and lost my train of thought yeah very happy so far .
Avatar m tn m sorry that you are having problems with your pain. I KNOW that there is NOTHING stronger than the Fentanyl Patch. A 25 mcg Fentanyl Patch is a VERY low amount. If you are to try a higher dose it MIGHT give you the relief that you need. :) We REALLY aren't qualified for give you dosing advice. You RALLY need to discuss this with your Doctor.
Avatar f tn Although methadone and fentanyl are also heavily protein bound and as such require reduced dosing in patients with cirrhosis, the metabolism of these agents does not yield toxic metabolites, and hence they, along with hydromorphone, may be better tolerated37,38 (Table 2)." ".....Hydromorphone and fentanyl appear to be the least affected by renal dysfunction, and fentanyl has less hemodynamic disturbance (due to lack of histamine release associated with other opioids).
Avatar f tn The fentanyl patch strengths go up to 100 mcg/hr and the prescription leaflet shows dosing up to 300 mcg/hr so there is a lot of wiggle room with the fentanyl patches to hopefully give her some relief. That is fabulous that her cancer is in remission!!! Often even when this occurs, extreme pain can still be left behind from the treatments - especially radiation therapy.
Avatar f tn Im on suboxone and I take 3 quarters a day of the tablets, im getting all four of my wisdom teeth removed and will be sedated,they are doing a IV and local anesthesia. I do not want to tell the surgeon because they will look at me differently. What should i do taper myself to a quarter a day and then not do any the day before and of the surgery? What should i do and will i be ok if i do that?
Avatar f tn Within 24 hous you should begin to feel tje fentanyl working, and after a day or two after you apply the 2nd patch, the level of fentanyl in your system will stablize. You can do a couple of things to make sure the patch is working. First, make sure that patch is properly applied and second, acquire the covers for the patch. Information about proper application of tjeeethe patch and the covers is is on the patient information you should have received with the medication.
2066663 tn?1331993339 hello well iv been weend of the fentanyl i was on 300 milss of fentanyl every day i was stabalised with methadone after two weeks of being stabelised my pain in my back is becoming unreal again every morning the pain is so bad i just lay there in pain the thought of movin is unberable.
Avatar f tn Ah -- now this makes sense. Theoretically, the Duragesic patch should be covering your bodies need for opioids. Perhaps there is a problem with absorption from the patch? Your doctor may have access to a urine test that can show if you're putting out fentanyl metabolites. This will check whether or not you're absorbing the medicine. I used to break out from the patch, and after the two or three days, would apply triamcinalone cream or some other topical steroid to the site.
2066663 tn?1331993339 im an adict i was clean for 5 years i had a freak act of nature hapend and my kidneys and liver gave up on me the hospital put me on fentanyl and oxycodone iv been on a high dose sins june last year i fill like poo im not myself and the fact i was clean for 5 years im realy unhappy i fill worse of now than any outher drug iv taken before perscribed drugs are a hole noughther ball game and i dont no wear to start any ideas coz i cant live like this much longer

Avatar f tn t believe any real harm has been done. She simply wanted to get an idea of the dosing required of fentanyl to equal the oxycontin she is taking now. It is not like the original poster can just run to the local drug store and buy 3 fentanyl patches and slap them on. Now if the original poster decides to buy them off the street, well that is their perogative and whatever happens, happens at that point.
Avatar f tn They are givin me fentanyl. Which is a narcotic. But am i back at square one? Im still expieriencin the withdraws.
Avatar m tn I am into day 4 of no fentanyl {was using 200 mcg} for years. Trying my best to not go insane. Anyone want to chat?
614471 tn?1221179194 ive just come off fentanyl patches onto the morphine so i can taper down, my aunt who died was addicted to heroin so i know a bit about it so i just wanted to know the equivalent so i can understand roughly how much morphine im taking. thank you to anyone that can help. kind regards, carrie.
Avatar m tn Opana ER is the strongest opioid medication in pill form and the next tier up is the Fentanyl patch based on pharmacology. It is 2x stronger than Oxycontin, again based on pharmacology (i.e., you may find that Oxycontin is more effective regardless of the fact that the strength of Oxycontin is lower than the strength of Opana Er. I have never tried Oxycontin; however, my physician said that we would try it if the Opana ER isn't effective.
Avatar n tn monday i had a hard w/d but sedate my self with xanax valium and carmabazepine i got on prescription. yesterday i felt better but i made in fentanyl iv with 10% of an old patch i used only 12 hours and today same. my question is:WILL WIThDRAWAL COME BACK AFTER THIS 2 SHOTS?
Avatar n tn I can tell you they usually use medications named Versed (which is an amnesic and makes you sleepy and not remember the procedure) and Fentanyl (an IV pain medication). These two drugs together produce the sedation for the procedure and you will be comfortable. Most people don't remember the procedure at all.
Avatar m tn IV Versed (Midazolam, a benzodiazepine) presurgery. 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 f tn Comparing the nonexistant original formula with Fentanyl...Fentanyl works much better on my pain. The pain relief is more consistent. I don't have the up and down roller coaster every 12 hours like I did on extended release pills. Your results may be different but BEWARE...Opana ER is different now and manufactured with plastic polymers (and some other junk) to make them crush resistant so that you can't snort them...similar to Oxycontin OP.
