Avatar n tn Hoping someone knows a little about this and maybe shed some light. I am a medic in the military and EMT and I have never heard unequal pupils being normal. But again, there are no other symptoms that I have noticed and I am not a doctor of pediatrics.
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 My 6 year old daughter' dentist told me she has hpv in her mouth that will require surgery. How would a child get hpv? How common is it in children?

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 n tn The Unversity of Missouri in Columbia is excellent, in Saint Louis Washington University and St. Louis University are excellent. I'm very opinionated but in Kansas City in my opinion my group Discover Vision Centers is excellent two of our MDs edit medical journals and several lecture world wide, others have written medical textbook chapters.
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 n tn My child was having pain while passing urine, his urine test shows some calcium oxalate in the urine. what can you advice me and what do you think i can do to treat him? thank you.
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...

I'm so sorry that your son is having such problems.
Avatar f tn I'm looking for a Chiari Specialist in the Raleigh-Durham, NC area. I am a 49 year old female. I've been showing classic sign of Chiari for years. Am hoping someone out there knows of a doctor. All I've been able to find is pediatric specialist.
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 I had a knee injury last year and now I have arthritis in my right knee. I went through therapy a year ago, but my right quadricep does not look like my left quadricep. My question is: How do I build the muscles back up in my quadriceps (as a matter of fact, my entire thigh area)?
Avatar f tn I was just doing my 5 year old boys laundry, and noticed two of his underwear have white spots in the area of the penis. One of them was quite large and the other was smaller, they are not circles, but like smears. This may sound gross, I smelled them to see what it was, but because he is 5 and still having accidents, all I could smell was urine. Does anyone else have any suggestions as to what this might be? I know its not diaper cream.
Avatar f tn lol Just a few weeks ago when I took my son to the doctor, his doc.( Dana Ankney, Forest Park Pediatrics) told me that it was okay to feed him eggs and he was barely six months. As long as the eggs are cooked and you're feeding him so he doesn't choke, he's fine.
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 n tn In pediatrics which conditions levofloxacin with ornidazole combination will be used?
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 m tn My 7 year old son has complained of nipple pain (only one nipple) in the past few days. Seems to be getting worse. On visual, there is no discoloration and the nipple only looks slightly larger than norm. The nipple is extremely sensitive to touch (slight pressure) and feels like a small lump underneath. We plan to take him into the clinic tomorrow.
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?
