Avatar f tn Fetynal patches are synthetic narcotic analgesic with a rapid onset and short duration of action. In the mid-1990s, fentanyl was first introduced for widespread palliative use with the clinical introduction of the Duragesic patch. Overdose may cause death.
Avatar f tn I am currently pregnant and have been on fentanly 125mcg every other day for more than 8 years, but was able to get down to 50mcg for my the duration of the pregnancy so far. Nothing else touches my pain and when I try to come off my quality of life is nill. I am bed ridden with pain, and unable to work. Has anyone relied on Fentanyl during their pregnancy, and what was your outcome?? There just aren't any studies out there with info.
Avatar f tn More like a contract not to accept opiates from anyone else. Fentanyl is a powerful drug and if your using the patch form it takes longer to get in and out of your system should you have complications with it.
Avatar f tn Short-acting medications like Percocet, increase the build-up tolerance due to how the immediate release action of the pill works on the body. Extended release (long-acting) medications slow the build-up of tolerance as the medication is released slowly and steadily over an extended period of time from 8-12 hours to up to 7 days of action. The Percocet you take now would become a breakthrough pain medication that you take in between doses of the long-acting medication only as needed.
Avatar m tn The onset of action ranges from 45 minutes - 1 ½ hours, and the duration of action is six hours. Diazepam carries a bi-phasic half-life of 20-50 hours (for Diazepam), and 30-200 hours (for Desmethyldiazepam). Valium is indicated for the long-term management of generalized anxiety and tension-anxiety. Tolerance will not develop to the anxiolytic property of Diazepam, although tolerance will develop to the sedative/hypnotic property.

Avatar m tn I only get ten a month and for some reason as of now my insurance company wont cover the fentanyl. They are very expensive ~120-140$. If I decided to take it off can I remove and store in plastic bag until a later time. It could be a few hours or the next day. I would tape it with medical tape as the instructions say you can if the adhesive tape wont work. I have read online people getting nausea and taking off for a few hours then replacing later. What are your opinions?
Avatar f tn At our hospital we have a Fentanyl protocol, and this might work quite nicely for you. Fentanyl has a rapid onset of action, and wears off quickly. If you were my patient, and likely to deliver quickly again, I would strongly consider using this medication for you. By the way, it is also safe -- safer than Demerol actually. Good luck!
Avatar m tn A partial µ-opioid receptor agonist, its mixed agonist/antagonist activity affords it a lower risk of dependence and abuse than full µ agonists like morphine. Meptazinol exhibits not only a short onset of action, but also a shorter duration of action relative to other opioids such as morphine, pentazocine, or buprenorphine.
Avatar m tn about 2 weeks ago i had a sexual intercourse with a call girl.after 5 minutes of action,i decided to change style,when i wanted to start action again,just after i wanted to enter my penis in her vagina i heard the condom broke and i immediately extracted my penis and stopped the action.my penis was in her vagina for about 3 or 4 seconds after the condom broke and i stopped further contact immediately after that.
Avatar m tn Wow! You take 300 mcg of Fentanyl every 3 days? That's a seriously high dose. Like mary said, you will develop a tolerance to opiates, which means you would keep requiring a higher and higher dose to reach the same level of effectiveness. You posted in the addiction forum. Do you abuse your meds? If not, then I agree that this would be more suitable for the pain management forum. Are you getting your meds through a pain management doctor?
Avatar n tn a physician could give you a more detailed course of action depending on your situation as this varies by the individual. keeping yourself busy now and in the next several days may also be helpful.
Avatar n tn Thanks for the reply, But my concern is that duration of the actual play, that is intercourse. We do foreplay and cuddle and everything but when time comes to actuall intercourse, i am able to make 9 to 10 strokes and i am done. is it normal or it is very less. my wife conitnues with the motion and i just support her with my flacid pennis. is it normal, is it common in normal sexual experiace. Please share your experiance which would be verey helpfull for me to take further action.

2198240 tn?1338546163 I also have been suffering from chronic pain for 12 years. I am on the 50 mcg/hr Fentanyl patch that I change every 48 hours. I take 2.5-7.5 mg of oxycodone IR for breakthrough pain. Oxycodone IR goes up to 30 mg strength tablets. I do have some questions for you so that I can better assist you: 1. How often do you change your patches (every 48 or 72 hours or something different)? 2. How many times do you have breakthrough pain each day?
1264955 tn?1381782221 I was on a 75 mcg patch of Fentanyl. I went to a rehab to try to get off of it, but because of my pain, they left me on 6 mg of suboxone a day....I have only been on it a week. I am home and realizing that this is a horrible drug, worse than the fentanyl patch. They sent me home with 2 mg strips...yesterday I took 4 mg. I am very nauseated today. If I don't get off this now, is it going to be harder to do? I have Fentanyl patches left that I could cut. I don't know what do do.
Avatar f tn It now makes perfect sense to me why you are in so much pain on the Fentanyl. Converting 360 mg of Oxycontin to Fentanyl results in 150 mcg/hr...this is conservative. Converting Fentanyl to equal 360 mg of Oxycontin with the opioid calculator results in 300 mcg/hr. This is the largest dose conversion that is shown in the fentanyl prescription leaflet that comes in the box with the medication. So your doctor's thoughts that you need to keep going up on the Fentanyl patch are CORRECT.
Avatar m tn If one gets symptoms they come on 2-4 weeks after infection and last 1-2 weeks.
Avatar m tn what is the duration of ARS? I have been answered between 2 days to 2weeks duration and can appear from 2 to 4weeks of exposure.
