Fentanyl dosing iv doses

Common Questions and Answers about Fentanyl dosing iv doses


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 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 m tn If the pain is still there, obviously the Fentanyl is not working and you need to address what is actually happening. Fentanyl CAN relieve pain, depending... It also dopes up your mind and body. You have no way of knowing this until you can think clearly and the Fentanyl prevents that clear thinking. Find out what is really going on and GET OFF THE FENTANYL, THIS STUFF IS DANGEROUS!
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 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 m tn I stopped taking my Suboxone strips for 24hrs. Went into immediate surgery. They gave me Fentanyl, several hydromorphone doses, and a benzo. Got out of the hospital waited 12hrs took my Suboxone. Been taking it for a week. Still feeling surgery effects and I have these weird withdrawl like symptoms. One minute the hairs on my neck stand up, the next im sweating only minor, then I get nausea, then I feel shaky. Its been 8 days since surgery.
910090 tn?1332167460 Agree with Can-do and pooh - if you will run short of 2 doses of Vic due to double dosing, you should make every effort to get the Vic before your current supply runs out. As stated above, you don't want to miss the Vic doses. I hope the clinic can get you supplied before you run out. Good luck.
Avatar m tn They suggest that the larger question of whether true weight-based dosing of ribavirin is superior to the currently approved standard dosing schemes still awaits head-to-head studies to answer. "At the minimum," they conclude, "the traditional notion that ribavirin dosage should be fixed has now been sidelined by the idea that we should tailor ribavirin dosing to our patients.
561705 tn?1234546159 Can anyone explain how riba doses are determined? My Doc never weighed me and prescribed 1200 mg.
Avatar f tn Is there a chart that I can use to convert fentanyl patch strength to the Opana Er strength?
635835 tn?1272539383 Clinical trials In a randomized, double-blind, controlled trial assessing high-dose oral corticosteroids for the treatment of acute relapses in MS patients, equivalent doses (500 mg) of both oral and IV methylprednisolone were compared.(6) The results suggest that oral methylprednisolone is similar in efficacy to IV therapy, but problems such as small sample size (n=35) and possible unblinding due to metallic taste in the IV group limit the validity of these findings.

Avatar f tn Sorry i miss read you post,,,,the way in tapperd was my dosage first,,,,i still did 5 doses a day,,i worked down from 5 in a dose to one in a dose and snuck in some halfs in there,,,once your down to singles try and go halfs,once your at halfs start skipping doses when you feel you can,,,,if you can get to halfs when dosing even tho your still at 5 doses a day,,,,,youll be at 2 and a half pills a day i went cold turkey from there went thru hell but it is managable
Avatar m tn Short of walking around with a slow-drip IV, more frequent dosing of 2b may well give the best results. For those pursuing a "scorched earth" tx (gauf?) this definitely seems a good strategy. Giving up the "convenience" of once weekly dosing seems a smaller, and safer, path than dose increase.
Avatar m tn Some History of my condition. I have a rare hereditary illness, lacking plasma that holds the cells together on bottom of feet. It was never too bad ( I can handle tons of pain) but 5 years ago it was so bad I couldn't walk at all and was so painful. My doctor, being young and eager ,instantly put me on Fentanyl 75ug/h patches instead of working his way up. I couldn't function, but he said in time I would. Until one day , on the second set, I felt like I was overdosing .
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.
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 If you are on triple therapy for genotype 1 and undetectable then your doc is following AASLD protocol for anemia management Anemia developed among recipients of both PIs. Hemoglobin decreases below 10 g/dL (grade 2 toxicity) occurred in 49% of patients who received a BOC regimen compared to 29% of those who received the SOC regimen, whereas 9% had a hemoglobin decline of <8.5 g/dL (grade 3 toxicity).
Avatar f tn I have been on fentanyl patches for the last 9 months after having severe chronic abdominal pain for the last 14 years. My PCP started me off on 50mg every two days and now I am up to 125mcg ever two days but in the last couple of months I have started to notice that the smallest things have been setting me off and there are even sometimes when it feels like I have absolutely no control over the anger and I just have to wait until the feeling leaves my body.
6012171 tn?1381679620 t really have a guarantee either way, but with such small doses, your chances are lower. Also, I have to disagree with the commenter above. It can potentially suppress your immune system to a small degree (in the doseage you stated, but it will most certainly NOT wipe it out.
Avatar f tn However, I think I need more. Apparently 200 mcg of Synthroid is a large dose, have you heard of higher doses this early in the game? I am starting to make some improvements, like I was able to go to the gym, but had puny work outs and can fall asleep at 8pm, and I sleep horribly. I see the doctor on the 22nd of this month after more bloodwork. Glad to see I am not alone.
Avatar m tn Hello! I been over on the Painmngmt. mainly but have a question regarding Fentanyl i hope someone can help me with. I'm currently weaning down on Fentanyl 25mcg. This is my 5th day and my schedule looks like this. 1st keep 2 25mcg patches on for 3days. Next put 2 25mcg keep those on for 3days. Next put 1 25mcg and leave that on for 3 days and the last put1 25mcg patch on and leave on for 3days. After this i'm done. I was started on 25mcg and went quickly up to 100mcg whithin 4weeks.
Avatar f tn My psychiatrist said you can take it in two doses. I know you can take armour and cytomel in two doses, but I e never heard this about t4 meds.
