Avatar f tn Has anyone gone thru withdrawal of the fentanyl lollipop 400mcg? I want to gradually wean, but don't know how fast I should push it, and money is a real concern so I can't delay. I've been taking 5 to 6 ea of 400mcg each day for almost 4 yrs. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I've asked my dr to get off but she wants me to switch to Oxycotin.....I feel like I'd be jumping from the pan into the fire. I want off this stuff and see where I'm at w/the the pain.
Avatar n tn Gypsygirl66: Thank you for your support. The paramedics indeed performed intubation and the ACLS protocol. I gave them a full description of the situation as soon as I arrived and also showed them all the drugs she had been taking. They told me that it wouldn't make any difference in their approach as long as her heart didn't give any signs of life. They did an excellent job and I have nothing against them.
Avatar f tn There are several different meds that you might be switched to. DYou know that there is a Fentanyl Lollipop called Actiq. It is for BT pain but it might be a good BT for whatever med your Dr. switches you to. Especially since you like the Patch so much and the Fentanyl works well for you. I'm sorry , I'm ASSUMING that it worked as well for you as it did for me. Your Dr.
Avatar f tn Was this an intentional overdose or accidental and was he prescribed Fentanyl or a recreational user? Fentanyl users use the drug to get to the nodding stage where it is quite pleasant and peaceful and makes them feel good but very drowsy and this is dangerous as it affects breathing. As a user of the drug for pain I can see the attraction for recreational use to. Please be assured no one judges other here. We all have our own demon's and life experiences and have no right to judge others.
Avatar m tn I was doing great on that, actually had a life, the fentanyl does work but u need to go every 48 + a breakthrough and be prepared to lose energy! Gonna see if doc can give me Lollipop fentanyl 160 mcg breakthrough for days I want to do something with my little one or husband.other than that it is real tough to do a whole lot now that methadone is gone and my spine is injured now. Take care out there, it is hard to get fair treatment with all the bad press these days!
Avatar f tn They can add to sleepiness caused by fentanyl and may cause extreme drowsiness or breathing problems. Fentanyl is a narcotic (opioid) pain medicine. The Duragesic fentanyl skin patch is used to treat moderate to severe chronic pain. The Ionsys fentanyl transdermal device is used only in a hospital to treat acute pain after surgery. Fentanyl topical may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.
387767 tn?1345875627 You could also ask your doctor about liquid or sublingual (dissolves under the tongue) narcotic preparations before going on the patch. For example, Actiq is a fentanyl lollipop that would allow you more control initially as to how much you need and to avoid being overmedicated. All narcotics have their pros and cons so making an informed decision before starting opiate therapy is always a good thing.
1035252 tn?1427231433 Sublingual or the lollipop form of fentanyl isn't a good choice because fentanyl itself is a very short-acting drug. Those forms of delivery are used for breakthrough pain. It's the patch delivery system that allows fentanyl to be used as a long-acting pain medication.
Avatar m tn I was up to about 3 or 4 Fentanyl lollipops a day for about 2 months. I've been struggling with tapering down off them. I didn't figure out a good system until the end. Now today is my first day with out one, and I'm feeling ok. A little shaky and emotional, but It's leaps and bounds in comparison. Thank you all!!!
Avatar m tn Simvastatin 20 mg(1T QD), Diazepam 10 mg(1T TID), Opana ER 40 mg(1T BID), Atenolol 100 mg(1T QD), Lunesta 3 mg(1T HS), Cymbalta 60 mg(1C BID), Fentora 800 mcg(1T BID PRN), Fentanyl Citrate 1200 mcg(One lollipop QID PRN). He was OK for a couple of months but yesterday he started acting weird again. Slurred speech(more than usual), lack of balance, forgetfulness, etc. How can I prevent future episodes from happening? Please I need help.
1271743 tn?1320896061 If he doesn't want to do that because of your age, would he consider the Fentanyl Actiq (lollipop) for the BT med? I'm really sorry that you are having to endure such debilitating pain. I can't even imagine how excruciating the pain is when you take a step. Say, that just gave me an ideal. Have you ever tried a brace for your ankle to help relieve the pain when you walk. I fell down some stairs 3 years ago on my knee and my Dr.
910419 tn?1289487327 The Fentanyl patch! One of my closest friends is actually on the fentanyl patch. So, I could maybe ask her about this for you... about how to approach this topic with a doctor. I will do that and get back to you on what she says.
1271743 tn?1320896061 Is it long enough that possibly the Fentanyl meds would work for you again? I was thinking maybe the Fentanyl Actiq (Lollipop) would work for the BT meds. Also, when you have gone through all of the different dosages fo the MsContin it might be possible to try the Patch again and it might work at a lower level for you. I'm just trying to help, I hope that this didn't sound too off the wall to you. :)...
Avatar f tn my mother has been on the fentanyl patch for 17 years to manage her pain due to her bone cancer. Within the last week her doctor took her off of it cold turkey because my mother could no longer afford to pay the $800.00 a month for them. She wason 125mgs of fentanyl patch and now nothing. She is having chest pains severe back pain she cant sleep or eat. she has mood swings bad( highs and lows) she says it feels like there are maggots crawling all over her.
655467 tn?1304963550 Actiq is a fentanyl lollipop. It's the same medicine that is in the patch and is no better or worse than any other opiate. It's in lollipop form so it can dispense faster for breakthrough pain and is absorbed through the lining of the mouth. Because of the instant release, it's more attractive to abusers than the patch, which is one reason it's so tightly regulated. There's a place for Actiq in pain management just like any other medication.
Avatar n tn Hello and Welcome, Actiq is a lollipop with fentanyl in it. Is that what you want to taper on?? I'm almost at the end of tapering off the fentanyl pain patches. I am down to 12mcq. I was going to use actiq for a few weeks when my last patch comes off, but after doing all the research and taking the advice of a very good friend (who I'm trying to reach for you) I have changed my mind. The are very addictive and I'm sure you know that by now. I'm sorry for anyone that has to go through w/d.
Avatar f tn Since oxycodone is a long-acting medication, other opiates in the same class would be various extended release morphine preparations like MS Contin, methadone, or the fentanyl patch. Although methadone is a good long-acting pain med, there are some unpleasant side effects. It tends to cause a lot of dry mouth and people have actually lost their teeth because of this.
Avatar m tn a day for 4 months after an accident, Now I wanna quit and sincerely mean it but I feel really bad when I take too long during the day to take 1 so have been unsuccessful so far... but a friend gave me a Fentanyl Transdermal System 100 mcg/hr patch for 72hrs... I wanted to know if I would get sick or if It would help or ur thoughts in general...
Avatar f tn Definitely ask about the fentanyl lollipops and they also have dissolvable strips of short acting fentanyl too (it is called Fentora). I have heard they work at lightning speed to relieve breakthrough pain. And it is nice because you only have to use as much as you need and you can put the lollipop away for later when needed. It sounds like you have a great team of physicians that listen to you and want to help in any way possible.
1301089 tn?1290670171 Prosecutors allege the Schneiders regularly dispensed OxyContin, fentanyl, hydrocodone and other powerful drugs to patients with severe pain but also to drug abusers who feigned symptoms. Schneider did not monitor cases carefully, prescribed excessive dosages and wrote prescriptions so freely he became known among some patients as the "Candy Man," prosecutors said. The patients included Patricia Gaskill, 49, who was suffering from pain after knee replacement surgery in 2005.
Avatar n tn I was pretty much ok then. Is 10 days without a patch enough to clear the fentanyl? Are fentanyl and morphine the same? The pills are green, say 100 on one side and E658 on the other. Ive done oxys before and these arent them. Also Ive done 800 mg "pops" (sorry dont have the package or Id tell you more, you put this lollipop between your cheek and gum) but only do 1/2 at a time. Ibe been doing this for about a year now. Started at 25 mg patches and moved up etc.
488264 tn?1226523907 When meds stop working for chronic pain, they change the medication - such as morphone to fentanyl, or fentalnyl to dilaudid. Changing the meds tends to improve pain relief as different narcotics work differently. Increasing your morphine would probably not help at all. Your brain reaches a stage where it plateaus (sp) and no matter how much you take, it will not make a physical difference. Perhaps phsycologically, you may feel better, but actual physical pain relief is unlikely.
712042 tn?1254572809 A prior trial of Bystolic for help with angina was ineffective. I added a narcotic, Fentanyl lollipop to use to get me pulled out of the more painful attacks. Time is critical and I hit those harder attacks with immediate nitro spray, xanax and the narcotic. I have continued to avoid ERs and hospitalizations. All other meds are the same and my nitro dosage has not changed. My lipids are wonderful, my weight loss is sustained.
Avatar n tn Another form of fentanyl on that market that works through a unique delivery system is a drug called Actiq. This is fentanyl in a lollipop, but I have heard these are extremely costly. Lastly, those that talked about wanted to withdraw from narcotics, there is a relatively new medication that helps facilitate this and is not the same as just slowly tapering off of the medication you are on.
356518 tn?1322267242 What about something non-oral? Fentanyl comes in a lollipop, and I know some meds are also available in suppository form. Since the nausea/vomiting appears to be from a totally different problem than the oral meds, it's going to take time to sort out. Do you think your pain doc will be open to discussing the possibility of putting you on some non-oral meds for a short time? Check into zofran for a nausea med.
Avatar f tn Yesterday as I was putzing around on my computer I got an extremely sharp pain mid sternum exactly where my incisional scar begins after having had a total pancreatectomy with autologous islet cell transplant (tp/iat), splenectomy (spleen removal), partial (70%) colectomy (partial removal of the colon) and an appendectomy (appendix removal if you didn't already know) thrown in for good measure(!) It literally took my breath away and brought tears to my eyes it was so sharp.
712042 tn?1254572809 I collapsed at home with a very sudden onset of sharp pain going up to my jaw, into my ear, down my right arm and painful at the elbow. I managed to get to my emergency drugs ( nitro spray,xanax and fentanyl lollipop) but after that the chest pain increased and I was out and lost 2 hours. I was hospitalized for 8 days as they tried to control the CP with up to 180 mcg IV nitro along with dilaudid, a new Procardia,my regular CCB and Bystolic, nitro spray and nitro patches and O2.
Avatar n tn I take narcotic pain meds and use the fentanyl lollipop for severe flares. I was rx'd the pain meds almost 3 years ago and know that I am not an abuser. I am most certainly dependent upon them to function in a small capacity. Twice in 3 years I have told my Dr. that the pain meds are not adequate and she then raised them in # and strength. No they don't take all of the pain away but they do cut it to something manageable. I also see a pain psychologist which is very helpful.
535152 tn?1215018769 My dad has some health issues and takes methadone as well as fentanyl (for terminal cancer patients sucker lollipop like medicine). Jeremy would deny taking it even when I'd find it on him in his bag, etc. He would wrap it up in toilet paper and put it in his pocket and even when confronted still deny it say he just found it on the floor or something. He's had a pretty rough upbringing and a lot of emotional issues never dealt with.
