Avatar f tn After several hours the fentanyl gel should have been transdermal absorbed.....you should have very little to worry about with the children. Of course, observe them and if they should start to exhibit symptoms (nodding out,drowsiness) seek professional help. Monitor their respiration and seek help if it becomes shallow or laborious.......best of luck - - you really should be fine.
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 f tn I could have gone to the ER but my husband was out of town and I have children. Plus I can’t stand the IV drugs at in the hospital because it makes me throw up. SO, anyway since I accepted it she and I had some words. I really don’t blame her. She is a good doc and she is only looking out for my best interest. She said she wanted me to find a new doctor because I broke the contract. She said she would give me one more month of prescriptions but then I was on my own.
Avatar m tn Due to FAP being in our family, my three children had to have yearly colonoscopies without sedation. They said they weren't pleasant but each was able to tolerate them. That's been awhile ago, and now my two remaining, adult children are sedated for their scopes.
623131 tn?1223057475 No I just put them back in the foil package and pitch them in a covered trash can with a liner. Our only children are of the feathered and furred variety, so no issues there.
495284 tn?1333894042 Just awful...Fentanyl is bad sh!t in any form! I hate the stuff, even in a controlled environment! I'll bet she'll plead to a lesser charge though...
Avatar m tn Just curious? A friend of mine told me she's on fentanyl patches. We got into a slight conversation, becuz I told her I was detoxing off percocets.(proudly I might add), she said it was an opioid. So my question is, does opioids do the same thing as far as our receptors, and endorphins in our brains from percocets. With the patch she said she has never felt the things I described to her. I was just curious, does fentanyl patches work the same way as percocets?
1490116 tn?1304817137 I can sympathize with you. I have debilitating pain in my back which causes numbness in my legs. I too have children that rely on me daily & am currently 25 weeks pregnant with child #3. Regardless if you think you can keep your meds low or not Fentanyl is a VERY strong medication. The dosage you'll be given depends on the dosage of Methadone you're on.
Avatar n tn i have recently started using fentanyl patches for chronic pain i have had for over 2 and a half years. when looking on this website and others i have found lots of articles suggest these patches could be dangerous and have many side effects and long term problems. i just wanted to ask whether others have found them safe to use?
Avatar f tn I've just been switched from Fentanyl 25mcg every 48 hrs to Oxymorphone 10mg every 12hrs. I feel way worse (pain) & was wondering if anyone knows what the equivalence is between the 2. I have a feeling I've just been decreased in pain relief. My dr & the pharmacist told me to wait a few days to "feel it's working" & in the meantime I'm in excruciating pain. Can anyone help with what I can do here? Btw...
Avatar m tn I do not believe fentanyl was an option at that time. Fentanyl also comes in IV form if you are with hospice or in the hospital. Fentanyl is close to 100 times stronger at pain relief than morphine. It works well with few side effects. The worst side effect personally is the constipation. I take 2 docusate sodium tabs 100MG two times a day and it seems to counteract the side effect. I hope that helps and God bless all of the women and men that are enduring this awful disease.
Avatar f tn which i have never been one too sweat and the Mylan patches come off by the time i wake up in the morning. i must now use the i transparent cover up(derm0 patch. Is there another manufacture that's makes these "patches"? On a good note, prior too be prescribeded,(THIS WAS OUTRAGEOUS) They were not treating the problem just trying to turn me into a junkie, granted i still have too raise children,i dont work perm.disabled since the age of 34 now 37 .
Avatar f tn You need to stay very well hydrated. Someone with more experience with the patch will post shortly. Hang in there. Do you have Epsom salt for hot baths?
3160774 tn?1343705010 Have been on Fentanyl patches 125/hr every 48 hours and 4-5 Percocet daily plus maybe 8 10mg Vicodin a day. How long before starting the Suboxone should I stop all of these meds. I have Clonidine for withdrawals how can it help. I am scared to death. Have never been in withdrawal from Opiates. I was told 36 hours prior but am so afraid of precipitated withdrawals. Has anyone been here that can give me some advice?
Avatar f tn What process are you talking about? Withdrawing from fentanyl? I have one insight : They're all difficult to quit. I'm not meaning to sound harsh,trust me,I have compassion. Quitting anything we're addicted to is just awful. Opiates can just be stopped. It's not easy but it's done all the time. Do you have any support? Have you prepared yourself for detox? Called a doctor to help?
Avatar n tn I have been taking up to 12 percocets a day (sciatica) and now I've been given Fentanyl Patch (16.5 for a nominal in vivo delivery of 100 mcg/h fentanyl for 72hrs) and don't know what to expect, I'm alittle scared to put it on. Could someone tell me how they feel, I have 9yr old twins and don't want to be too zonked out. Thanks so much for any info, I'm so happy I found this site.
Avatar m tn It may not replace the fentanyl but it will easily cut it in half and allow you to sleep.
Avatar n tn Hi! Thanks for having this online resource! I'm researching the pro's and con's of the fentanyl patch. My fiance has been in a great deal of back pain and is prescribed oxy's, morphine and percocet. However, he doesn't take them because they the only things that work for him are 80's and roxy's that he gets from family and friends.
317787 tn?1473358451 sorry put it in comments The new part is that fentanyl which is 50 times stronger than heroin is being put in to heroin. Also cartenfil the (ELEPHANT) animal tranquilizer, it is 100 times stronger than fentanyl It is being manufactured in China and Mexico. They are saying they have not seen this before. Almost as if the dealers are trying to kill their customers. Something the size of a snowflake can kill. Ya know my mama said if you can't say anything nice, say nothing.
Avatar m tn Hi Sam, Sorry, I had the same reaction to the Fentanyl Patch. With each application the red raised hive like rash became worse and in short time spread to my entire back where I was applying them. My physician said I was allergic to the adhesive on the patch, not the Fentanyl. She tried a potent cortisone cream to help the reaction but that too failed. I cannot take Fentanyl because of the severe adhesive allergic reaction.
6815927 tn?1395511425 Ive been following your story and rooting for you. Fentanyl is up there in terms of...ugliness. I believe you will beat this though. Just keep on moving forward like you are.
7486246 tn?1391323511 We reached 4 cm quickly and 80% effacement and 5 cm by noon, we had our water broke by 3pm and than I opted for an epi, not because of pain, but because we had no child care for our kids as previously mentioned in another post as this is our rescheduled induction appt. Anyways didn't want my kids or husband stress out or being scared of my ability to breathe through contractions. So anesthesia came in and attempted to do a walking epidural.
