Avatar f tn Could he have gone in his sleep if it was his heart. Should I be dissappointed in the vet that there was no one at the clinic when he died. I am hoping it was a blessing in disguise so that he didn't have no more suffering as he was misdiagnosed before that with osteoarthritis which we were treating him for 4 months. I feel so bad he had to have that pain before he died and then went through that terrible surgery. please let me know your thoughts....
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.
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?
Avatar f tn I never like the idea of Rimadyl for dogs. Carprofen (the active ingredient in Rimadyl), even though deemed safe for dogs, still can cause too many adverse reactions and side effects for my liking. But isn't it a cryin' shame that vets have to be careful what they prescribe for pets because the owners will take it?!?! Sometimes I wonder how the human race has come as far as it has with so many idiots here to carry it on. Sorry for the rant. Some things just tick me off.
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 f tn LOL Well I went through gastric bypass surgery in May of last year and the pain management team from that hospital put me on the Fentanyl patch and Oxycodone .... wouldn't you know that I thought I was in heaven!! The pain level went down so low I could actually function!! My pain was like yours in that it didn't go away but it was tolerable and that was a blessing!! I hope that the patch continues to give you your life back as it did me and so many others.
Avatar f tn Dont let your dogs be too close to the baby and dont leave your dogs alone with your baby. Get your dogs in a good consistent routine of feeding, exercising, and down time. That will help them adjust to when your baby is here and you wont have all time to focus on them.
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?
Avatar f tn Moving around. I walked my dogs during the day, every day, no matter what (and they love me for it!). Other times I got out of bed, I stood up and moved around the house. That usually takes it away. I didn't worry about sleep. I would sleep when I could. The best sleep was always after HOT BATHS (#2). Especially with Epsom salts, lots of it. The Magnesium from the Epsom worked it's way into my legs. Also two tabs of Magnesium every morning with breakfast helped.
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?
1390350 tn?1279902967 I have been on 75 mcg Fentanyal for 15 years. Since they changed the patch to the new one, I feel it hasn't been helping me like the old gel ones. Mostly, the darn thing just does not stick at all. I have tried to get the sticky pads to go over them or they just fall off in a few minutes. I have dogs and little grandbabies in the house and they fall off and you don't know. The dog got one once. Saved her just in time. Anyway.
Avatar f tn Welcome to the Dogs Community! :-) The cheesy white drainage makes me think it's follicular cysts. Basically, the hair follicles get clogged and the tiny sebaceous glands underneath can't drain properly which results in a pimple or cyst. Think of it along the lines of humans with certain kinds of acne. Like humans, some dogs just produce more oil in their skin, and there's not much to be done for it.
