Avatar f tn Due to medical problems I have been on pain medication for at least 30 years, I am 60 at this time, 5 weeks ago had 2nd knee replacement, I have tried many times to get off Methadone, I usually run out before prescription is due and suffer severe w/d. Like everyone else I do not want to be tied to this drug, it is the worse, I have been on it about 5 years.
Avatar m tn Am off Fentanyl pops for over a year, now stuck on 12=16mg of ativan a day. WTF am I doing?
82861 tn?1333453911 One of the most common questions that pops up here is from people who have difficulty keeping the fentanyl patch in place. Lost and ruined patches can be a terrible problem for both the patient and the doctor. We all know early refills of any pain medication are problematic no matter what the reason. I have used the Nexcare brand bandages for years as covers for the fentanyl patch. They were the only bandages that kept the patch in place for the full 3 days.
1198242 tn?1265182918 Hi everyone! I detoxed off (mainly) opium and (sometimes) fentanyl pops recently (37 days clean) and I guess I am doing ok - no withdrawals anymore, can finally sleep. Exercising at least 5 days a week... Still I am not doing this because I want to, but because I know that's the fastest way to "reboot" my brain. I drag my butt, I struggle to complete my workouts, struggle to do anything that takes some strength... Does anyone know how long this awful fatigue lasts?
725248 tn?1316162245 Hi. im on the fentanyl patch and i think it works good and dont give me the realy druged up feeling like a lot of pills. For B/T pain i take norco 10/325 2x3 or 4 a day.
Avatar m tn But I noticed that these are only the days when I am close to being out of my medicine, Actiq or fentanyl lolli-pops! They were a God send at first but over 5 years later, more than 50 surgeries to replace my urinary tract and my "man plumbing". I have had a supra pubic cath, a couple of urinary stints in the ureter and I could go on and on. I am now taking up to 10 - 1600mcg of the fentanyl lolli-pops, the max dose that lately doesn't work as well.
Avatar f tn If you get worried about not feeling movement, try ice pops! I keep a box in the freezer during the summer and every time I eat one she gets kicking haha. They are cheap and good when you're hot, so just a friendly suggestion!
Avatar f tn Ok so I have seen a lot of women that swear by preggie pops. I was looking online as to where sells them. but upon looking at each stores site they all say not sold in stores and to order them online. Are there any stores that actually sell them in store??
4244557 tn?1371701336 Has anyone tried the preggie pops? I have awful morning sickness and just spend the day on the couch cuz if I move I get sick. I don't see my doctor til the 31st and I just cannot wait that much longer. I heard about these but didn't know if they actually worked.
568659 tn?1256139982 Do any of you know where I can buy preggy pops? I can only find them online and I don't want to have to pay shipping and wait for them to come in the mail. I went to walgreens and couldn't find them. I know USA baby sells them but the nearest one is 45 minutes away which seems far to drive for suckers. I don't know if they will help me feel better but I am willing to try anything, I am so SICK of ginger ale.
Avatar n tn The wrist pops ALOT.. doing all sorts of different things. The elbow also pops alot (with alot of cracking sounds). The wrist is also inflammed all the way around. This has been going on for about 2 years. The pain does decrease quite a bit when I dont do anything with it (no sports,etc). I am a computer progammer so this is difficult. Any suggestions would be very helpful!!
Avatar f tn ve gin gins from whole foods but they were so awful I spat it out. I bought some preggie pops and they work for a short amount of time. I was wondering if there something out there that any of you have tried that seems to help control the nausea for more than half an hour. I havent make my pregnancy public at work and I'm struggling to keep this nausea under the radar.
Avatar f tn So I just heard of these preggie pops..? Can I get them like at Walgreens or do I have to order. Them off line...?
Avatar f tn I was never much for sweets, but vanilla ice cream, ice pops, and snow cones are weekly for me ha! My girl is also so active. I'm 20w. Now I want a tigers blood snow cone... thanks.
Avatar m tn I do not believe fentanyl was an option at that time. Fentanyl also comes in IV form if you are with hospice or in the hospital. Fentanyl is close to 100 times stronger at pain relief than morphine. It works well with few side effects. The worst side effect personally is the constipation. I take 2 docusate sodium tabs 100MG two times a day and it seems to counteract the side effect. I hope that helps and God bless all of the women and men that are enduring this awful disease.
Avatar m tn You can do this Mike. Day 21 was awsome. That was when my sleep got better and energy came back, at least some. Just try to prepare yourself for the bumpy days to come....it's not that long of a time when you put it in perspective. Have patients and faith that it gets better like everyone says. Yesterday I would have caved. Today I was alone with Fentanyl pops 12 inches away from me and I didn't come close. It really felt like a breakthrough.
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?
