Common Questions and Answers about Fentanyl iv dose

actiq

Avatar m tn The test for Fentanyl is specific to look for that drug and a normalized value can be detected usually 3-4 days after. You were given such a small dose IV, it may have been a much shorter time span.
Avatar m tn I stopped taking my Suboxone strips for 24hrs. Went into immediate surgery. They gave me Fentanyl, several hydromorphone doses, and a benzo. Got out of the hospital waited 12hrs took my Suboxone. Been taking it for a week. Still feeling surgery effects and I have these weird withdrawl like symptoms. One minute the hairs on my neck stand up, the next im sweating only minor, then I get nausea, then I feel shaky. Its been 8 days since surgery.

19164880 tn?1473283520 I have just come of Actiq and Fentanyl patch and understand your situation. I have decided not to opt for opiates except iv morphine if required for severe pain in hospital only for life threatening situation e.g. complete obstruction of the bowel. I have looked to alternative ways of pain management. It will not take the pain away only manage it. I found fentanyl did not alleviate all pain hence the actiq and that just gave a feel good factor (prescribed for cancer).
710547 tn?1295446030 The first one was horribly painful. I had IV fentanyl which they kept increasing - but nothing helped. It still hadn't completely healed when I went for the 2nd one. I asked him to forget the fentanyl and just try to increase the local. Much better!! It's very painful still, but I am very hopeful that it will give me some real relief! I recently reduced my morphine Sulphate from 120mg to 60, and stopped all oxycodone.
Avatar f tn I've been on fentanyl patches for about three years now, due to a chronic vascular disease. I started out on a 25 mcg patch every three days, and at some point increased to a 50 mcg patch every three days. For a while now Ive been noticing that on the third day, they day that I'm supposed to change the patch, I start getting terrible withdrawl symptoms. It's worse than any pain I've ever felt. My body gets incredibly restless and I can't stop writhing around.

Avatar f tn I awoke in severe uncontrolled pain after surgery, they assumed I was faking for more meds, until my BP went sky high, nearly coded, and they consulted my wife. She informed them of my prior meds. They then quickly brought meds IV dose after dose after dose eventually putting me back under to get control then start over with reawakening me. I didn't tell them originally bc I was worried they would assume I was still taking it all and OD me.

Avatar m tn Fentanyl can be very difficult to come off. The withdrawals seem to be harsher and last longer than other opioids. But you are lucky to only be at 12 mg over 4 weeks. Did your doctor have you on something else before he put you on the Fentanyl? I ask that because Fentanyl isn't normally used as a first-line drug for pain. If you were on something else, that would factor into your withdrawal. You can read lots of withdrawal hints over on the Substance Abuse forum.
1549683 tn?1293990213 I am an IV dilaudid/heroin addict. At the peak of my addiction i was IVing up to 110 mgs of dilaudid a day (12mg at a time). I quit and went on the methadone program. I'm up to 120 mgs a day. People talk about opiates being a CNS and respitory depressant, but this stuff amps me up till i'm bouncing off the walls. My heart rate goes up about 10 bpm and i cannot sleep. I talk and talk and talk when i'm on this stuff. i become neurotic about things.
Avatar f tn Im on suboxone and I take 3 quarters a day of the tablets, im getting all four of my wisdom teeth removed and will be sedated,they are doing a IV and local anesthesia. I do not want to tell the surgeon because they will look at me differently. What should i do taper myself to a quarter a day and then not do any the day before and of the surgery? What should i do and will i be ok if i do that?
Avatar m tn Hello Novermhead, You've asked a good question. Oxycontin is a sustained release medication and I am surprised that you are taking four, 40mgs tablets per day. According to the conversion charts that I normally refer to the fentanyl patch would need to be 125 mcg to equal what you are taking now, which would be delivered over a 72 hour period.
Avatar m tn What is the dose of the fentanyl patch that you are applying? Is it the equivalent dose of what you are currently on? If not, you may not get equivalent pain relieve from the fentanyl patch.
Avatar n tn it may take a while to adjust each time u drop ur dose//or patch dose..have u talked to ur dr bout some safe meds to help u with all of these wd symptoms..also most taper a bt slower than u have...from 150 to 25 mcg is quite a fast taper.. There r also 12.5 mgc patches available..u r where u r so it is hard to move back up in dose....each time u dropped ur dose how long did it take for u to adjust to the lower dose? did ur dr give u anything to hap with sleep and anxiety?
2066663 tn?1331993339 hello well iv been weend of the fentanyl i was on 300 milss of fentanyl every day i was stabalised with methadone after two weeks of being stabelised my pain in my back is becoming unreal again every morning the pain is so bad i just lay there in pain the thought of movin is unberable.
Avatar m tn Wow! You take 300 mcg of Fentanyl every 3 days? That's a seriously high dose. Like mary said, you will develop a tolerance to opiates, which means you would keep requiring a higher and higher dose to reach the same level of effectiveness. You posted in the addiction forum. Do you abuse your meds? If not, then I agree that this would be more suitable for the pain management forum. Are you getting your meds through a pain management doctor?
2066663 tn?1331993339 Hello gys girls i dont no if anyone is on here still from when i was on that extream amount of fentanyl anyway iv stayed of thge fentanyl and went onto methadone whitch iv come off now and gone onto sebutex it was quite easey changing over from meth to sebys i felt like i had the fue for a week thats all no horrors or anything like you get from drink or outher hard drugs whitch iv done anyway thats not my question my question is i personaly fill like coming off these sebutex is going to a bit ha
Avatar f tn If I go 18-24 hours without dosing or even a reduced dose I get sick, and I only take hydrocodone. Fentanyl is a short acting drug which is why they make it in patches so it can be time released, the good news is that it typically means withdraw will be shorter. Best of luck to you, I just signed up on here today myself looking for some advice to get the monkey off my back. I'm sure somebody else here can be more helpful.
Avatar f tn The muscles in my bicep, tricep and forearm would tense. The arm would clench, the music would stop and POP, the arm would fly up and out, as if trying to right hook an opponent who wasn't there. Every 60 seconds for two hours -- until just before 3:45 -- I'd swing away into the dark. Until the left arm got in on it. By 7:30 in the morning, I wasn't a championship boxer, I was a retarded pigeon with defective wings.
Avatar f tn i have ben on the fentanyl patch quite awhile 100mg and have gone down to 50 mg, my health ended and my last patch ends in 4 days and im scared.
Avatar f tn They are givin me fentanyl. Which is a narcotic. But am i back at square one? Im still expieriencin the withdraws.
Avatar m tn I am into day 4 of no fentanyl {was using 200 mcg} for years. Trying my best to not go insane. Anyone want to chat?
Avatar f tn ve never had the Fentanyl lollipops but I was on (what I think) was a high dose on the patch. I came off that gradually (on my own) and it wasn't too bad. I do know Fentanyl can be hard to come off CT but I would think in your situation in wouldn't be hard to taper you down. Why are they all of a sudden in such a hurry to switch to something else? Please do your research on methadone.
