Avatar f tn does anyone know how long narcan stays in your system? i was given two viles last night around 11:30, and i did not even take anything. long story..........the worst of all wds set in right after they gave it to me in my iv. i tried to take some today for my pain and really bad rls but it got worse?? someone else hold my meds for me.
Avatar m tn In the OR suite, more IV Versed, INhaled oxygen, IV Fentanyl (A potent opiate), followed by IV Propofol (This actually is what knocks you out), and the IV Pancuronium Bromide (For muscle relaxation, so the machines can breathe for you) It is common at times to administer reversal drugs depending on how much was given and your response when you come out of anesthesia.
Avatar m tn methadone does narcan reduce time of serious withdrawal by making the front end worse........
1091346 tn?1256926149 as I just had my dealer bring me a 4 day supply of H until I see my MD Tues for scrip refill on my oxys and Fentanyl, as I only have one oc left and my patch wore out yesterday. I tried not to call dealer tonite, but just 'til Tues. I am deathly afraid of wds, as I have high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and am 65. If this detox works as advertised, I can borrow the money from my ex employer. I just don't want to get ripped off. Thanks for all of your support.
Avatar n tn I believe that many of the posts that have been placed on this site mention someone being given Nubain at some time and then telling of the severe withdrawal symptoms that you experienced when what you mean to say is that you were given Narcan! Narcan is the medication that we often give to reverse the effects of opioid drugs be them legal of street drugs. I have been in emergency medicine for 25 years and have give Narcan more times that I can remember. And to mr.
Avatar n tn These docs, nurses and medics give narcan way too freely. I don't think he will have any residule problems and he should have never been given the shot. I was under the impression that it is only to be given when a person is out. I was given narcan shots twice when awake (without my knowlege) on methadone and suffered big time. It even left me traumitized. Once the medics gave me a shot a lied about it.
1087566 tn?1282448730 I have had great sucess with the Fentanyl Patch. I have used it for about a year now and it gives me around the clock relief for 48-72 hrs. You may want to do some research on the Patch or chat with your Doctor about it. I also take Oxycodone for breakthrough. Give it some thought.
Avatar m tn Yes you can that's what I did to get off my fentanyl patches and Percs. I started the end of feb and now I'm down to .50mg of subs. Just make sure you don't let the doctor start you on to high of a dose. Only take the minimum amount needed to help the w/d then stabilize on the dose. If you message me ill tell you how I did it. I guess we are not suppose to put tapering information in comments.
Avatar f tn Look it up-googgle it, but i'm pretty sure it's narcan. Narcan reverses the effects of opiates.If you are taking narcan and then take your DOC chances are you will get zero effect from the narcotic. I guess its kinda a safety net like antabuse(sp?) is to alcohol... Best wishes.Ur doin awesome.
Avatar m tn Yes subs do block other opiates as they are supposed to like nurse girl said but the reason they are blocked is not because of narcan when subs are taken sublingually narcan does not have any effect because it does not enter the bloodstream and is only in suboxone to detur ppl from injecting it.
217599 tn?1202850952 yup i can def help ya out with suboxone and you have no reason to be scared it is actually a great drug as long as you do it the right way and also slynn is absolutly right you do not have to be in full blown withdrawal to take it just mild withdrawal and you will be fine and as far as the spit goes i always spit it out because swallowing suboxone has no effect i just keep the spit in my mouth about 5 minutes after the tab is completely dissolved then spit that nast sh*t out haha.
Avatar m tn s a combo drug of buprenorpine (sub) and naloxone ( narcan). Narcan is an opiate reversal med often used to treat OD and in surgery to reverse anesthesia and wake up the patient. Any way it's a common form of sub treatment. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Has anyone else been hit with NARCAN??? This is bad news big time for pain management if you are under a steady daily dose of opiates pain medications!!! I am handicapped unable to move my arms normally (extension) and was in a hospital to come off my pain meds and eventually get a morphine pump. My first day there...they over dosed me and I was unconscious and unresponsive. In the ambulance aparently my heart stopped and I stopped breathing.
Avatar f tn When someone is nodding they are experiencing an overdose. I just completed my narcan training and learned this.
Avatar m tn Make him take a suboxen in front of you, if he’s getting high it will instantly send him into about 16-24 hours of detox due to the Narcan it contains. If you take suboxone with an opiate habit you instantly get sick.
Avatar n tn Suboxone is prescribed for treatment of severe opiate addiction. It contains buprenorphine and naloxone - otherwise known as NarcAn. It doesn't get you high and it's dangerous. It will block the high of opiates or throw you into withdrawl if you are dependent. The 8mg pills are orange hexagons. Seriously dude, don't take it, you won't like it.
Avatar f tn This would indicate that she was doing heroin during the pregnancy so I would say yes, all of the drugs being put into her body while pregnant will effect the baby. The only safe and responsible thing to do now is make sure that the OB is aware of the situation so when the baby is born they can immediately start taking care of the ailing baby. It's gonna suck to tell them...but there is no choice. Baby comes first...
Avatar f tn t taking it for cravings but rather it was a combo pill of oxy/naltrexone that was invented in Australia (I took it for pain after I weaned of high dose dialaudid and fentanyl. It was a horrible drug that was the impetus to make me go cold turkey because I felt like my soul was being robbed. I'm not sure what it would be like alone but thought I'd share my experience for what it's worth.
Avatar m tn During his emergency plane landing days earlier the first responders did give him narcan but that is common procedure to do when they find someone unresponsive and doesnt mean he was overdosed. He had been having issues for a bit beforehand and it seems as though he knew something was up. I guess we will have to wait a few more weeks to see.
Avatar f tn My doc put me on suboxone for a month, and then switched me to subutex, because subutex is an opiate and it also has narcan in it, which of course helps remove opiates from the body. I did very good on that and was able to come off with no big problems, but then again i wasnt on it for a long time, and after i got off of it, it wasnt very long until i became addicted to fentanyl 100mcg/hr patches, oxys, and morphine IR which i have now been clean for 60 days.
Avatar m tn After she was stabliized (shot of Narcan/assisted breathing), she became very sensitive to smells/tastes that she had no reaction to before.
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?
662972 tn?1270166301 potentially lethal, even for tolerant individuals death can occur quite fast without proper medical treatment with narcan.
1006065 tn?1251478669 I posted a question before and I apologize for giving so much background and making it so long. No one has responded so I'm gong to post again. I am about to come off 12.5 mcg patches of Fentanyl and I need some advice. I weaned down from 37.5 on my own. But, I'm terrified about coming off and having no more meds in my system.
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.
