Fentanyl in renal failure

Common Questions and Answers about Fentanyl in renal failure


Avatar n tn I did well for a long time but began to abuse both perks and fent and oxy. This is a battle with fentanyl. I feel in some moments this will not end and it ***** to hear some have been going for 5 days to 6 months. I thought maybe 3 days. I feel like I am dieing but it helps to know others survived this. Good luck and I am here for you too.
Avatar f tn I think part of the problem could be the nausea factor that you talk about in the article. My vet recommended trying other brands of renal health dog food, but I don't like the other choices. Royal Canin's canned dog food, for example, uses by-products and I refuse to feed her that. I'm trying to come up with a solution and possibly make my own food for her.
Avatar m tn wants to switch me from 120 #4 dilaudid a month that I just started taking 3 wks ago to fentanyl and 40 #4 dilaudid. What do you all think?. Also I should mention that whatever I do could effect weather I get a liver or not If they think I really need what I am taking since I had A drinking problem but not in over a year. I go to AA several times a week.
Avatar f tn Although methadone and fentanyl are also heavily protein bound and as such require reduced dosing in patients with cirrhosis, the metabolism of these agents does not yield toxic metabolites, and hence they, along with hydromorphone, may be better tolerated37,38 (Table 2)." ".....Hydromorphone and fentanyl appear to be the least affected by renal dysfunction, and fentanyl has less hemodynamic disturbance (due to lack of histamine release associated with other opioids).
Avatar m tn With meds it has came back down to it's usual high of 160/90 and it lowers ok with meds. I just found out today that i'm in stage 3 renal failure. My prolactin pituitary hormone is very high at 135. All this with me and my wife has breast cancer too! The stresses of all of this are killing me too.
1069888 tn?1421940341 and even though she is stable, she is still considered to be in serious condition. To add to the Fentanyl overdose, she acquired MRSA and H1N1 while in the hospital! (THIS angers me!) I truly don't understand why they waited until she was diagnosed with this to make all who came into her room wear protective clothing and masks, but...??? Anyway, I know the family really appreciates the thoughts and prayers they have all received. I appreciate them too!
Avatar f tn Aspirin, dextropropoxyphene, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and pethidine, should not be used in the presence of chronic renal failure due to the risk of significant toxicity. In the presence of hepatic impairment, most drugs are subject to significantly impaired clearance and increased oral bioavailability, but are poorly studied in the clinical setting. The agent least subject to alteration in this context is remifentanil; however the drugs' potency has other inherent dangers.
Avatar n tn I have that problem myself. Fentanyl is an opioid which takes several days to build up to a stable concentration in the body, and also takes a number of days to clear out. Given that the fentanyl patches have had an FDA warning of overdosing due to defects, definitely keep all patches for evidence/testing. With several opioids in the system and fentanyl already giving base analgesia, it is quite possible for someone to go to sleep and then develop respiratory depression.
7091144 tn?1387993543 My legs hurt so bad when i tried to detox before and cant sleep. I have had three heart attacks, been in a 5 day coma, had renal failure and pneumonia so bad i had to be hooked up to life support, the breathing machines etc., just in the past year!. Can anyone give me advice on getting through detoxing at home? I get so depressed when i try to get off pain meds. Help please!
Avatar m tn They called me back and said the driver was too far away and it would have to be tomorow to recieve them. i told them i was in renal failure and these meds were criticle. Man, thats messed up for me to say. Anyone who is out there with that condition, i do apologise to you. I couldnt take another night with the pain. It was that bad. You know, im not saying this struggle is over. If I can just find it in my willpower to use only as directed, and the meds work properly. i will be ok.
667923 tn?1421466324 It wasn't until I spent 3 days in the hospital and received 7 pints of blood that I finally started to feel better, but it was a SLOW process. Now, I am in stage 5(end stage) renal failure, and I'm sure I was pushed there by the horrible virus I had, which caused the heart problems also....so...I'll be undergoing surgery, then starting on dialysis 3x per week for the rest of my life.
Avatar m tn I just HAD a fasting lipid panel done, have NEVER had any thyroid issues in my life and we did the renal panel LAST time I was in! She didn't like it very well.....being questioned by a "patient"....but because I'm the assertive type, she finally agreed to check with my PA. As it turned out.....the ONLY test they submitted to the lab was the basic CBC and I later talked with the nurse and told her I hoped I hadn't p!ssed her off.
Avatar n tn I am having horrible withdrawel. I am trying to set up a lie detector test in order to prove that I have not in any way diverted, misused, or any thing else other than take my medications. I am so upset and I just can't understand how they could be negative when I AM taking all the medications. I am at the point as to why try any more. I have RSD I don't know if anyone here has this but it is impossible to live with. What can I do? I can't fo back to this kind of pain.
Avatar n tn I have been without for 36 hours and of course I feel like hell in a hand basket. The longest I've ever gone is about 30 hours. My question is: How long until I start to feel better? I am off of work for a week (I planned this to coincide with my vacation). I would have gone into a detox or something but I have no one to take care of my house, etc.
Avatar n tn If you got the diahrea your in mild withdrawl there is chest pain and aniety in tapering as well. Be realalistic. That other substance in there with the codiene that what is going to screw up your liver big time go to a doctor and get it checked. I hope your ok. Getting off this **** isn't a fast process at all. Your in danger go to doc it's serous bigtime 12 at once thats serious. Sorry but I'm concerned about your health so should you.
Avatar n tn I took a prescription called Folcaps (which had 25 mgs of pyridoxine in it) for a year. In February of 06 I began experiencing symptoms which have now been diagnosed as Pyridoxine (b6) Toxicity Induced Neuropathy. I did not get this diagnosis until August 15, after four MRIs, several specialists and balance testing. My b6 blood level was 81 - the maximum safe level in this test was 32.
