Avatar m tn So ive been noticing an oily film when i forget to flush at night and its there in the morning with a very noticeable smell. So anyways I am going to a methadone clinic because I got addicted to pain pills specifically fentanyl. Tje last time I used was january 6th and I have been 100 percent clean since then. I had a random drug screen that is a urine test that gets sent to a lab so its pretty thorough and I tested positive for fentanyl 3 months after i used last.
Avatar n tn Right before I went to the doctor with my problem, I noticed something really strange- my urine was oily looking, like a thick film floating all the way across the top of the toilet water. All the colors of the rainbow swirled in...it looked like an oily puddle that you'd see outside in a parking lot after a rain storm or something. It doesn't happen every time. It's happened about 6 times in the past 2 weeks.

Avatar f tn Which patches are you using, the thick Gels or thin film? My wife uses the thin film ones and rarely has any issue sans swimming and or sweating all day in which case she covers it with a waterproof Band Aid and has no problems. She puts them or side just above the waist. I've stuck them on my butt cheeks b4 w/no problems. As far as your scrip, I would reiterate with the nurse that your discussion was document in your chart lest you have the chance of being screwd........
1644508 tn?1301001315 I was prescribed 8 10MG Oxycodones and a 75MCG Fentanyl patch for pain. Well, The percocets stopped working and it seemed like I could take 15 and they still did nothing! I was SOO tired of the rollercoaster and my body was obviouslly dependant on the opiates so I decided to try Suboxone. Well today is day 3 of the the 8mg film strips 3X's a day and I am STILL having withdrawl symptoms. I dont feel good AT ALL! I am thinking about pills constantly.
3112530 tn?1434032033 I have checked the web and have NOT found any web sites that help with withdrawal from Fentanyl. WHY is that? This is horrible to go through. I did only by the chance of life or death and for me, it was almost death. Down to 108 pounds and all the doctors could do was cut my morphine dose etc. After finding out how the fentanyl and all the drugs were affecting me, my pancreas reacted and my intestines were causing problems so I had to stop cold turkey.
Avatar f tn For the last few years I have been on Norco 10 / 325 3 times daily and fentanyl 50 mcg. I was doing well on this regimen, always had some degree of pain but this made it manageable and gave me quality of life. Here is the problem. : a change in my Medicare insurance resulted in the fentanyl not being affordable for me, so I asked my rheumatologist if he would agree to me coming off fentanyl, he was willing to help me. Today starts day 5, no taper b/c I could not afford the patches.
Avatar n tn I was put on Fentanyl 25mcg every 3 days for about 2 months. After 2 months my Dr. told me to start changing my patch every 2 days. This was because the 3rd day for me was always a bad day. I could feel the pain "I thought". 2 months after that I was told to increase to 50mcg because I wasn't getting the same pain relief. So now we're at 50mcg every 2 days. Today-Just over 6 months later....... I want off. I think the patch might be making me feel worse. This was my Dr.
1041243 tn?1375230520 Anewlife, I am suppose to take one 8mg film twice a day today and tomorrow, and then 1/2 of one film 3 times a day after that until he cuts the dose again next Tuesday. I was taking 16-20 norco 10/325 daily, actually I took them all at once. I don't feel much better at all I'm guessing cuz I swallowed most of it, I'm still feeling dope sick pretty bad. I know we're not doctors, but does that sound like a normal dose of sub for the amount of pills I was taking?
725248 tn?1316162245 My doctor has switched me over to the fentanyl patch, I am on the 75MCG/HR and switch it out every 2 days instead of 3 days as per my doctors instructions. My problem is I sweat alot and trying to find a place to stick it where it will not come off. The brand of patch is Mylan. So far the only spot that seems to work ok is the top of my chest right in the center. Does anyone have any advice to offer. I think they do not work very good if they are covered in tape?? just my thought. Thanks..
Avatar m tn Can anyone tell me if I would be better off getting the film this month or should I stick with the pill? Does one work better then the other? I just left my dr an not sure wich one I should get.
Avatar m tn i am a herion addict i was prescribed suboxone film i have not used since 8 this morning im going through withdraw now when can i take it
Avatar f tn Since I can only seem to attach one film per post, I will have to do three post. I know you are not radiologist but, I would really like your input. I would like to be able to ask my doctor some intelligent questions. He is looking for spinal problems and demylation. I am very symptomatic. Thanks for your input.
Avatar f tn I am going to get off the Fentanyl patches and put on Methadone using Suboxone as a bridge .I have never heard of this med called Suboxone.I am on 200mcg of Fentanyl how long will it take to get off the fentanyl?
Avatar n tn he have read about tear film debris and got to know that they are black in colour. how can he distinguish tear film debris from actual floater? how do tear film debris look like?it will be of great help to my friend who has lost hope.he would really want some information about them. thank you so much. This site is of great help.
Avatar m tn I have a cloudy and spotted film in my eyes at all times that I can actually see moving up my cornea in the mirror. It causes ghosting. I have to get rid of this. What are the names of all the conditions that can affect the tear film? Is it all called dry eye?
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 interactions between prozac and fentanyl. My husbands meds were recently doubled. Prozac now 40mg and fentanyl 50mcg. and he is now talking in his sleep every night and constantly scratching at himself in his sleep.
Avatar f tn I blindly went along with my doctor prescribing the Fentanyl patch along with other meds for BT pain. I realized the Fentanyl had a lot of negative things for me (like increase in sugar intake, nodding off when I stopped doing anything, no short term memory.) Do a search on Fentanyl here and see what people have gone through with it. Personally I think it should only be used for end of life pain. If you have reason to think you won't ever come off it, then it would be okay.
Avatar f tn So I would just discuss with your doctor the fact that the fentanyl is no longer working. I have heard that fentanyl tends to work a lot longer than longer acting opioids in pill form before effectiveness begins to wane. The options that your doctor will most likely present to you are, an increase in fentanyl (which will require wearing a couple of patches versus just one), an increase or change in breakthrough pain medication and/or an addition of a long acting medication in pill form.
Avatar n tn The fentanyl should manage your pain much more effectively than the methadone... well I believe it will based on my personal experiences. And I have never taken opana, so I am not sure how much it would help. Good Luck.
Avatar m tn Just wanted to ask if anyone had any experience with switching methadone 95mg once daily, to fentanyl patch 100mcg Hour patch? or know the methadone mg fentanyl dose equivalents?
Avatar m tn Hey buddy! Congrats on your decision to taper down. I know fentanyl can be a handful. There's several members who has tapered quite successfully At 50mcg, my doctor wanted me to switch over to Oxycotin but insurance didn't allow it, which led to going cold turkey. I'll be passing your post to current and past fentanyl users! There's tons of support here!
