Fentanyl in neonates

Common Questions and Answers about Fentanyl in neonates


Avatar m tn com [Abstract] Objective To investigate the infection and prevalence of hepatitis B virus (HBV) in the neonates whose fathers were positive with hepatitis B virus surface antigen (HBsAg). Methods HBVDNA were detected in 56 neonates whose fathers were HBsAg positive and mothers were without HBVmarkers, 10 neonates whose parents were both negative for anyHBV markers were as controls.
Avatar m tn 08] The authors randomised neonates immediately after delivery to receive either hepatitis B immunoglobulin (HBIG) or placebo in addition to HBV vaccination (at 0, 6, 10 and 14 weeks). 259 neonates were included in the trial with 222 completing 18 weeks of follow-up. Only 62 (28%) reached the primary endpoint of freedom from infection and the development of an adequate immune response to the vaccine.

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.
173732 tn?1226758694 If the doctor and patient decide to continue venlafaxine during pregnancy, discontinuation symptoms should be considered in the newborn at birth. Neonates exposed to this type of antidepressant late in the third trimester have developed complications requiring prolonged hospitalization, respiratory support, and tube feeding. Such complications can arise immediately upon delivery.
Avatar n tn Methyldopa crosses the placenta, and may cause mild hypotension in neonates of treated mothers. Because it has been safely and successfully used to treat hypertension during pregnancy, some experts consider it to be the drug of choice for the treatment of nonemergent hypertension during pregnancy.

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'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 n tn It is now one of the most important agents of nosocomial infections especially in immuno-compromised individuals, neonates and patients with internal prosthetic devices. In these patients, the infection result from a compromise in both general and local defense mechanism, and inability to clear staphylococci from infected device because of a biofilm on the foreign body surface. Hope this information helps.
Avatar f tn In general, lisinopril should not be taken with potassium supplements or diuretics that conserve potassium [for example, hydrochlorothiazide/triamterene (Dyazide)], since blood potassium levels may rise to dangerous levels. PREGNANCY: Lisinopril should not be taken during pregnancy because fetuses and neonates have died when lisinopril was administered during pregnancy. NURSING MOTHERS: It is not known whether lisinopril is excreted in breast milk.
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 RBCs should be "anucleated" as in "without a nucleus." Nucleated RBCs are abnormal in a peripheral blood smear beyond neonates. If Red Blood Cells in a peripheral blood smear show up nucleated you need to have this investigated by a hematologist/oncologist. Nucleated RBCs are very immature RBCs that should not be seen outside to bone marrow and may be a marker of significant disease.
Avatar f tn Based on limited data, structural defects have been reported in neonates exposed to montelukast in utero; however, a specific pattern and relationship to montelukast has not been established. Healthcare providers should report any prenatal exposures to the montelukast pregnancy registry at (800) 986-8999. Pregnancy Considerations Maternal use of cetirizine (Zyrtec) has not been associated with an increased risk of major malformations.
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 m tn It may not replace the fentanyl but it will easily cut it in half and allow you to sleep.
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.
Avatar f tn He loves to eat and drink, but will not verbalize the food or the act of eating in any way. He does scream when his 3 1/2 year old sister or 5 year old brother takes his toy or will not give up the one he wants. He usually is a very quiet child who occasionally likes some contact with other people. Eye contact is minimal. He is a beautiful little boy who melts my heart. I am very worried about him. His pediatrician told his mom that he is fine and this is normal.
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?
