Fentanyl for childbirth

Common Questions and Answers about Fentanyl for childbirth


7303500 tn?1389997641 Has anyone ever gone to rehab to be medically detoxed from fentanyl and oxycodone? I've been on pain meds for about two years now. I've only been on fentanyl for three months but I want off everything. I feel like I'm in a constant fog. I hate the way I feel. The fentanyl is making me depressed really bad. It also gives me anxiety. I have chronic pain but I think I would rather be in pain then deal with the way pain meds make me feel.
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 f tn I wonder if the dose was too low for someone who is as opiate tolerant as I am? He also says I can take Norco for breakthrough pain. I was asking for Fentanyl patches, but he said Methadone works better for nerve pains, which is associated with fibromygalia. Any inputs? How does this medication affect you guys? Are you able to drive and care for your children/work? Thanks in advance!
Avatar n tn How to prepare for Labour and childbirth mentally and physically before planning pregnancy. Is it possible to have smooth delivery without any stitches. How to make this process enjoyful than fearful.
Avatar n tn I asked if I could bring my unused fentanyl patches in to the office for destruction and then receive a prescription for an equal number of patches, which I would then fill with my preferred (Mylan) brand that has adhered more consistently to my skin. I also mentioned that I was still experiencing breakthrough pain, as I wrote above, and that I would appreciate the opportunity to talk with my physician at my next scheduled appointment about pain management.
6815927 tn?1395511425 Jenelle, thank you for your thoughts--I was hoping to hear from someone that had been on methadone. I had heard that methadone was the hardest opiate to detox from and I don't know why my psychiatrist thought it would be easier. I think it is one of those incidences where the medical community thinks they know what is best but had never experienced a practical application of their beliefs.
1417802 tn?1282173063 That is a HUGE jump up to fentanyl....and could be VERY DANGEROUS! I would recommend NOT putting that patch on! It sounds very strange...why wouldn't the dr increase the # or norcos you could take?
1901977 tn?1333991726 The OB nurses will help you position and help you stay still also. Don't worry you'll be fine, I know you will be able to sit thru it. I haven't had an epidural for childbirth but I've had them several different times and was able to pull thur it. Wishing you a healthy baby !
Avatar m tn my life has changed. I was told by the doctor I had been seeing for years, that I would be on the fentanyl for the rest of my life. I was so depressed. I was always in pain...my quality of life was just awful. I have been very hesitant to post about this, because suboxone is usually used for addiction...and isn't widely used in pain management.....but it is the best pain reliever I have had over the past 5 years of pain and surgeries.... So.,..
7879163 tn?1411591644 I had a great talk with my OB and she said that she doesn't dose the epidural with any pain medication, which I'm completely happy about no painkillers. I'd watched on a few childbirth videos where they mixed in fentanyl with the epidural and the women were itchy and I'm not good with itchy! It really sounds like she was either extremely exhausted and/or had a pain medication in with the epidural.
Avatar f tn On the fentenyal patch and told my us came back positive for oxycodone how is this possible?
Avatar f tn I never wanted kids before mainly because i didnt want to go through childbirth. Now I'm 14 weeks and i tell my boyfriend everyday that I'm just cry the whole time and that i dont think i can do it. i dont do pain. not one bit. i even refuse to have my wisdom teeth pulled for this reason. i just dont think i can do it....does anyone else feel/felt this way?!
1900462 tn?1352775302 Because right now i cant even nest or take a childbirth class nothing and im thinking 30weeks is a good cutoff date to get out in time for baby? Please help.
Avatar f tn I'm not scared of childbirth as much as I am of being a mom for the first time. I know it's gona hurt, like that's a given lol. I wana try to go natural no pain meds, but I'm a baby when it comes to pain so idk how that will work. But our bodies are made for childbirth , if we couldn't handle it we wouldn't be able to have multiple children.
Avatar f tn I'm scared of childbirth. I am 37 weeks 4 days.I went to the doctors today and he said I'm 1 cm dialated and 75% effaced. This week or next the doctor thinks my baby girl will be here . I went to the childbirth class Sunday, it made me realize what to expect, but I know it will hurt. Any suggestions. Btw I'm getting an epidural.
Avatar m tn I am currently taking Opana ER 30mg /2 TID for long term spinal pain due to breaks and fusions. I am going to try replacing that for a short time with a Fentanyl Patch to see if I have any improvement in Pain Mgmt. I am just wondering what regimen I should use to safely do this. For example. Is it as easy as waiting 12 hrs. after my last Opana ER and then apply the patch (it's a 3 day patch) then take another ER once the 3 days has expired?
Avatar n tn im in detox from fentanyl. my dr. prescribed wellbutrin for 30 days. I was on 50 mg so I was given 25mg and wore the patch for 4 to 5 days before putting on a new one. after my last patch I started on xanax for withdrawls symtoms and put on a catapress patch. this worked real well and I feel like im starting to feel good. there are times my skin hurts and muscles hurt so that's where the xanax helps. I had neck surgery to replace a blown disc and know what pain is like.
910419 tn?1289483727 ve heard good things from one of my friends about the Fentanyl (sp?) patch as it lasts for days, which would be awesome for my marathon migraines which can last weeks. (that's on top of my 6/10 or higher pain level for the past 8 years). My mom suggested talking to my psych about the patch first, as she and my neuro work with each other on me and some other patients. But I don't know how to broach the subject. Any suggestions?
5135507 tn?1367163227 Fentanyl is a good drug to treat pain for terminally ill patients , or ppl who need 24 hour pain relief. But drs are passing this drug out to patients who don't need it or they keep increasing the dosage until its almost impossible to get off of it when the time comes. I know, it happened to me. Then wnen the dr was fired after I was on it for 5 yrs, I was basically screwed.
Avatar f tn Recently my oncologist of a year at the same clinic that put me on the fentanyl 5 years ago has decided she wants me to go off fentanyl and take methadone instead. I will have to be hospitalized and go through detox for a week, but I havent heard much in the way of assurance that methadone will be able to control the pain I will have again if it doesnt work. I have asked what my options will be and I am told "she doesnt have time to teach me".
