Fentanyl ingredients

Common Questions and Answers about Fentanyl ingredients


Avatar f tn m not sure how all of this works but some medications can break down in your body and show up as another med. Fentanyl may have some of the same ingredients as Oxycodone. Did your Dr retest you? If not, I was ask him to do it. I would also tell him about these tests only being 95% accurate and ask him to research one med showing up looking like another med. I take it there was also Fentanyl in your system along with the Oxycodone?
Avatar m tn I woke up to full on orange vision but I was coming off of fentanyl about 3 months of use. Now I'm clean and happy. Never turning back. Could that have been why? Withdrawal?
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?
369629 tn?1237812958 took me off the fentanyl and put me on morphine sulfate every 12 hours the switch was very easy and i am feeling much better,but its still an addiction drug but i guess i have to live with that if i want to be pain free witch i am for now i fine i am a little sore but i rather feel a little pain then what i was feeling before so thanks for your help.... i think this is a good drug...
Avatar f tn Opiate patches provide small, steady doses of their active ingredients over a long time period. You should not experience any withdrawal symptoms but everyone is different. Are you on a fentanyl patch or a morphine patch? Opiates can induce depression as can the fact that you have chronic pain. I hope you will consider seeking the help of a therapist. There are some that are very experienced in treating chronic pain patients.
Avatar m tn I was on Fentanyl patches for about 15 months. Finally discovered the source of my pain, and it has been treated successfully. I reduced the dose over a couple of weeks and finally got off the Fentanyl about 8 days ago. I want to know if the lethargy, insomnia, muscle stiffness, restlessness and sneezing that I'm experiencing can be attributed to withdrawal after this period of time, and how long it's likely to last for. Cheers.
Avatar m tn I was just prescribed the duragesic patch 25mcg but have not filled the prescription, while researching on internet found the ingredients in this patch being some powerful meds that I have never experienced before and I am in fear of overdose, not being able to concentrate on my job or addiction. I'm looking for serious advice from anyone who has done this switch and what was your reaction from the pills to the patch.
Avatar m tn The good news is from where I was (50-100 mcg of fentanyl + 10-15 30mg roxy's per day) I am down to 2/3 of 1 patch and 3-4 of the roxy's. Feelin pretty decent about that. I have a few days so this morning I had not had a pill in almost 24 hours and ripped off the patch. But oh my god did it kill me. I think I could handle everything but the skin crawling and restlessness....I tried everything from lyrica, baclofen, immodium, ativan. Nothing worked. I cud not sit still for 1 minute.
Avatar f tn I'll tell from experience that the fentanyl patches are he11 to get off of. Fentanyl is 80 times stronger than morophine. You are far better off tapering off the Percs then to go fooling around with those crazy patches. Trust me, if you want to msg me I would be happy to talk with you about them.
874521 tn?1424116797 more 'interesting' reading....for us pet owners..... Disgusting, the FDA(as reported on the site) has determined that 'grocery store' pet food that labels ingredients of 'animal fat and bone meal' content to be likely from that of an EUTHANIZED ANIMAL. Am I reading this correctly???? Are euthanized animals being used as a 'meat' source by pet food company's? http://www.truthaboutpetfood.com/articles/whats-your-opinion-are-these-a-pet-food.
Avatar m tn I was just prescribed the duragesic patch 25mcg but have not filled the prescription, while researching on internet found the ingredients in this patch being some powerful meds that I have never experienced before and I am in fear of overdose, not being able to concentrate on my job or addiction. I also only take the pills while at work my job requires standing for 8 hours, I do not take the pills on my time off from work.
Avatar f tn I prefer the fentanyl patch because it is all pain med -- fentanyl is a pure opiate agonist, like morphine, where as Butrans depends on a medication that is part agonist / part partial agonist. But either patch should be worn only by those who are opiate tolerant. Even the circular provided with the Duragesic patch warns against using the patch in those who aren't used to opiate analgesics. Have you tried Oxycontin?
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?
Avatar m tn If the pain is still there, obviously the Fentanyl is not working and you need to address what is actually happening. Fentanyl CAN relieve pain, depending... It also dopes up your mind and body. You have no way of knowing this until you can think clearly and the Fentanyl prevents that clear thinking. Find out what is really going on and GET OFF THE FENTANYL, THIS STUFF IS DANGEROUS!
Avatar n tn interactions between prozac and fentanyl. My husbands meds were recently doubled. Prozac now 40mg and fentanyl 50mcg. and he is now talking in his sleep every night and constantly scratching at himself in his sleep.
Avatar f tn I blindly went along with my doctor prescribing the Fentanyl patch along with other meds for BT pain. I realized the Fentanyl had a lot of negative things for me (like increase in sugar intake, nodding off when I stopped doing anything, no short term memory.) Do a search on Fentanyl here and see what people have gone through with it. Personally I think it should only be used for end of life pain. If you have reason to think you won't ever come off it, then it would be okay.
Avatar f tn So I would just discuss with your doctor the fact that the fentanyl is no longer working. I have heard that fentanyl tends to work a lot longer than longer acting opioids in pill form before effectiveness begins to wane. The options that your doctor will most likely present to you are, an increase in fentanyl (which will require wearing a couple of patches versus just one), an increase or change in breakthrough pain medication and/or an addition of a long acting medication in pill form.
Avatar n tn The fentanyl should manage your pain much more effectively than the methadone... well I believe it will based on my personal experiences. And I have never taken opana, so I am not sure how much it would help. Good Luck.
Avatar m tn Just wanted to ask if anyone had any experience with switching methadone 95mg once daily, to fentanyl patch 100mcg Hour patch? or know the methadone mg fentanyl dose equivalents?
Avatar m tn Hey buddy! Congrats on your decision to taper down. I know fentanyl can be a handful. There's several members who has tapered quite successfully At 50mcg, my doctor wanted me to switch over to Oxycotin but insurance didn't allow it, which led to going cold turkey. I'll be passing your post to current and past fentanyl users! There's tons of support here!
