Avatar n tn fentanyl is about 100 times stronger than morphine- (gram for gram), and a lot of people have a harder time getting off that, and oral morphine as well. Your transition was bad probably because it takes time for the fentanyal to release into your body fats under the skin, and from 48 to 72 hours from body fats to the blood stream. And remember that fentanyl patches are in micro-grams per hour, and release slowly, and morphine salts don't metabolize very well for a lot of people.
Avatar f tn I never even knew I would have withdrawal, although I may be being really naive. Anyway...how long do these symptoms last? The worst is restless leg, but the runny nose and severe pain in my back and elsewhere is pretty bad, too. I feel like I can't stand it another minute.
Avatar f tn Phi, as always, is correct about how long it takes the Fentanyl to get into your system. If you are on the patch for 36 hrs and on that 3rd day you feel more pain, son's hesitate to tell your Dr. that because he/she can order it for you for every 48 hrs. I know how frightening it was for you when you were taken off the oxycontin. It's always scarry when we lose the med that we've been on for so long.
Avatar m tn I looked up the facts sheet on how long it takes for Fentanyl to be completely out of your system (50% in 17 hours) then you have to half that again and again every 17 hours to come up with the true number of when it reaches ZERO! that will be midnight tonight for me. Which means that until it is completely out of my system I can't even start the count down to recovery. It could take two or three weeks after my system is completely void of Fentanyl. YIKES! That is so scary...
Avatar f tn m basically living in pure hell as a monster fentanyl addict. My consumption level has evolved through many years and at this point I'm chewing almost 100 mcg's a day. To make matters worse my wife is also close to my levels. This has caused great loss for us both. I've been forced into withdrawals on a few occasions. I can not express in words the hellish torture I've experienced. After three days at the most I was seriously considering ending it all.
635798 tn?1223444631 A lot of doctors have no idea how bad it is and how strong it is. Where I live they give it like candy to people in chronic pain and patients that have intertiical cysitis like me. They told me oh try this it will help you take less vicodin. I spoke to 3 psychiatrists that are addiction specialist and had no idea about fentanyl. Thank god for the few people that were here to help me that detoxed off it. If you need specific or any other info just private message me.
874891 tn?1240432420 Addicted to Fentanyl patches , wondering how long i have to be in withdraws before starting suboxzone. Can I take clondine while in withdraws,any advice apperciated.
Avatar m tn are these pains part of cold turkey from the Subsys or new symptoms of the new meds I have been given? Lastly, how long does the fentanyl last in my system?
1198242 tn?1265182918 Hi everyone! I detoxed off (mainly) opium and (sometimes) fentanyl pops recently (37 days clean) and I guess I am doing ok - no withdrawals anymore, can finally sleep. Exercising at least 5 days a week... Still I am not doing this because I want to, but because I know that's the fastest way to "reboot" my brain. I drag my butt, I struggle to complete my workouts, struggle to do anything that takes some strength... Does anyone know how long this awful fatigue lasts?
Avatar f tn ve been taking the fentanyl patches (50 mcg) along with percocet (10mg x5/day), back in Nov I started weaning myself off I cut the fentanyl first, then went from 5 percs a day to 5 vics a day, and have stayed there for the last few months. Well last week I decided to try and quit cold turkey, and right now I'm right around day 7.
Avatar n tn How long does it take for a 100mcg Fentanyl patch to get out of your system for a drug test?
Avatar f tn If you prefer less than 200 mcg/hr Fentanyl, your doctor could prescribe more medication in long acting pill form and less in transdermal patches. Given incomplete cross tolerance, you may need less of the Oxycontin, Opana ER, or MS Contin (Exalgo is a option as well) than the conversion based numbers above.
Avatar f tn I will be reduced off the Fentanyl gradually over a yr. my question is how long will I feel this rubbish? Thank u for ur time.
Avatar f tn I'm sorry I don't know how long it will show up in your body. In your case I would look into of those over the counter drug tests and see if that might help you get your answer or asking your pharmacyst. I know it takes a full month for the patch to fully get into your system. Good luck.
872115 tn?1242182670 It is quite possible that the meds are not all out of your system. Fentanyl has a very long half life. Good for you sticking it out. It is a rough road.
Avatar n tn It is best take suboxone while your already in withdrawal. Because if you have fentanyl in your system as you take the suboxone, the suboxone will kick out all of the remaining fentanyl in your system causing you to feel uncomfortable. So take the suboxon as your in withdraw. The physician that prescribe it would rather see you walk in the office in withdrawal mode rather than high mode.
1279189 tn?1275244868 No, with fentanyl on board you will have no withdrawal symptoms from the vicodin. However, it takes two or three days for the fentanyl to reach a steady dosage in your bloodstream, so you may need to overlap with the vicodin a bit as your body gets used to the change. You will not get a "buzz" or as you put it, increased spike in energy from fentanyl that you experience with vicodin.
Avatar m tn Fentanyl may take longer to get out of his system since it takes quite s while to get into your system. I know when starting fentanyl it takes about a month to get fully into your system. I would think asking the doctor who prescribed the meds or the pharmacist would be the best in terms of withdrawing safely from the meds. If he's weaned off the meds properly I would hope the symptoms he experiences would not be as harsh.

Avatar m tn Hello Novermhead, You've asked a good question. Oxycontin is a sustained release medication and I am surprised that you are taking four, 40mgs tablets per day. According to the conversion charts that I normally refer to the fentanyl patch would need to be 125 mcg to equal what you are taking now, which would be delivered over a 72 hour period.
Avatar f tn What if they give me a benzo with it? Which im sure they are going to do in the IV. How long does it take to get the suboxone out of my system so it wont effect thw fentanyl or benzo? Like today I did only a small half and my appt is next friday.
