Fentanyl oxycodone

Common Questions and Answers about Fentanyl oxycodone


Avatar f tn If I understand your question, you were on 40mg oxycodone / day and for some reason your doctor moved you to the 25 mcg / hour fentanyl patch. You felt better on the oxycodone and would like to return. Does that summarize your situation? You also remark that you don't feel the patch working and that is not surprising. Transdermal medication requires time to come up to a therapeutic dose.
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 f tn I do have Oxycodone 5mgs for breakthrough pain. will the Oxycodone help? I am despite for help.
Avatar f tn Thank you for being here. I was hit by a car as a pedestrian 26 years ago. Had many surgeries & hundreds of procedures. Left with a few chronic conditions, including neuralgia & truly unbearable pain. I’ve been a the fentanyl patch for years & on oxycodone, but have been trying to get to the lowest amount possible. I’m off the fentanyl patch entirely, as of 2 months ago.
725248 tn?1316162245 my mother takes 100mcg fentanyl patches and is also prescribed 15mg oxycodone pills for breakthrough pain. The dose for the oxycodone is 15mg but she can take two at a time, up to 3 times daily. That's 90 mg of oxycodone plus the 100mcg patch of fentanyl..... I know that her back pain is real, however this seems like an excessive amount of pain medication. Any thoughts? She had a failed back fusion surgery in 2001 and switched from Oxycontin to the patch in January.
1836543 tn?1318355809 for 2 years I have been on 15mg x 4 oxycodone per day and 75 mcgph fentanyl patch. If I stop only the oxycodone will I go through bad withdrawals or will the fentanyl help?
Avatar m tn Oxycodone/roxycodone? Are you taking this? Fentanyl and roxicodone/oxycodone all all opiates. That's a lot if taken together. It just depends...
Avatar f tn Personally I think that's too big a jump in dose and too fast. What your doctor could do is lower the Fentanyl but give you something else, like oxycodone, so you don't have withdrawals. Once you're off the Fentanyl, it is much easier to taper off the oxycodone. Tapering should be done very slowly so you will have very little withdrawal symptoms.
Avatar n tn s stronger than the Ultram and hydrocodone, but not yet as strong as the Fentanyl? Oxycodone might work well. You can get it in tablet form without tylenol in it like the Vicodin has, and this makes it safer for your liver. Ultram is a waste, in my opinion, because it doesn't help severe pain and it is as addictive as any narcotic on the market, besides the fact that it can cause far more problems than narcotics can.
7303500 tn?1389997641 I think they say to raise your dose of oxycodone while you are tapering the fentanyl then you can slowly taper off the oxycodone. I hope someone comes along that can help you and I hope your doctor can help you. I would assume that going into an inpatient detox would be the same as going for any other narcotics. Again, I am sorry that I can't help you but I do wish you the best of luck!
Avatar f tn Maybe oxycodone? plain oxycodone not oxycontin... it is stronger but it may work better with the fentanyl...
Avatar f tn Comparing the nonexistant original formula with Fentanyl...Fentanyl works much better on my pain. The pain relief is more consistent. I don't have the up and down roller coaster every 12 hours like I did on extended release pills. Your results may be different but BEWARE...Opana ER is different now and manufactured with plastic polymers (and some other junk) to make them crush resistant so that you can't snort them...similar to Oxycontin OP.
Avatar f tn I have never failed a urine test. I take 10mg oxycodone and in April my test came back as having fentanyl in it. The rpn said since I never failed a test she was going to have me do a saliva test. She also said that if fentanyl she’s up again she would not be able to give me my oxy. Ihave a appt with the dr next week. I am scared.
Avatar f tn ( I just noticed something and am wondering about it. Since I started the Fentanyl patch last week, whenever I take my BT meds (oxycodone), I end up with a headache and sort of long-lasting hot flash. I never felt like this before. Initially I chalked the hot flash up to the humidity here (though I've always been a cold person and never minded the heat. Now I find myself putting the air conditioning on, which I NEVER do.) The headache goes away pretty much if I take 800 mg. ibuprofen.
Avatar f tn Wait...is he taking Oxycodone or Oxycontin?
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 Hi, I have been on fentanyl 75mcg and oxycodone 5-10 mg/day for the last year - ischemia and trigeminal neuralgia. I really want to get off these meds b/c of addiction issues etc. My doctor maintains that I have probably developed a tolerance to these meds. (tolerance vs meds - same thing??). In any event I stopped the oxycodone 10 days ago and my doc tapered the fentanyl patches to 40mcg for 1 month then 12.75mcg for the next month. Also rx'ed clondine and klonopin for anxiety.
1271743 tn?1320892461 Had he not doubled my dose of oxycodone I would be far worse than I am now... If I do anything that requires me to walk more than an hour all together I am left suffering from pain that just won't stop in my foot/ankle. When I had my surgery I signed a paper to acknowledge that it would not provide pain relief only provide stability. My disability rating in the ankle is 35% as of 12/2008 after surgery.
Avatar m tn Fentanyl is a tough one. Don't cut your oxycodone dose until you get off the Fentanyl. Ask your doctor for a slow taper for the Fentanyl. (They may raise the oxycodone dose temporarily.) Once you're off the Fentanyl, then you can taper off the rest. Stay well hydrated. Don't try to CT Fentanyl, it is very unpleasant.
5597890 tn?1370629516 ve been on Vicodin,Percocet,didlauted, oxymorphone,valium, Flexeril,soma, Ativan, and none of those provided any relief. I was given fentanyl 25 on the patch for a month and really worked for a bit, but still had to take oxycodone 15 mg for break through. Pain still there. Yesterday changed pain management doctors, my last doctor only treated me like a number. New pain doc increased my fentanyl patch to 50.
Avatar f tn ) So far got off the Fentanyl 75 mcg., oxycodone 40 to 60 mg. every four hours. I had some pretty moderate withdrawals going off the Fentanyl and oxycodone. Nothing like cold turkey, but difficult nonetheless. I was switched over to morphine ER 30 mg. in the morning and 30 mg. at night. I already dropped to 15 mg. at night. I'm also supposed to take 15 mg. IR every 4 hours but I'm stretching that to 5 or 6 hours.
Avatar f tn I ran the calculator for you by converting 120 mg of oxycodone administered via 80 mg + 40mg of Oxycontin daily and the fentanyl strength computed is 50 mcg/hr. This calculator is VERY conservative when converting oral opioids to Fentanyl TD. So I also entered 4200 mcg and had it convert back to oxycodone. Doing this shows that 175 mcg/hr is equal to a total daily dose of oxycodone of 210 mg.
1264863 tn?1391118193 My doctor wants to move me from oxycodone that I take pretty much from when I get up till when I go to bed to a long acting medication. I can't take morphine, it doesn't work for me.
Avatar m tn would they switch you over to fentanyl and then taper the fentanyl and then move you to an oral med???
7303500 tn?1389997641 Has anyone ever gone to rehab to be medically detoxed from fentanyl and oxycodone? I've been on pain meds for about two years now. I've only been on fentanyl for three months but I want off everything. I feel like I'm in a constant fog. I hate the way I feel. The fentanyl is making me depressed really bad. It also gives me anxiety. I have chronic pain but I think I would rather be in pain then deal with the way pain meds make me feel.
Avatar m tn I use Fentanyl, Lorazepam, Oxycodone, Neurontin, and others every day. Can anyone give advice on if I can do this. I want this!
Avatar n tn Just a quick correction...Percocet is oxycodone with Acetaminophen, and Percodan is Oxycodone with Aspirin, not Tylenol. There are other, less common combinations, like Vicoprofen, which would be Hydrocodone with Ibuprofen instead of Tylenol (Acetaminophen). Vicodin, Norco, Lortab are all Hydrocodone. Dilaudid comes both in oral and injectable forms, with doses starting at usually 1 mg. Fentanyl patches typically start at 25 mcg/hr (micrograms). I have seen lower doses, 12.
