Fentanyl street price

Common Questions and Answers about Fentanyl street price


3039221 tn?1340464800 Hi Lauriel, I am so glad you didn't try to add another 100 mcg/hr fentanyl patch. These patches are extremely potent and the strength of them sneaks up on you. Like I said on another post, the medication continues to gain strength over a period of several days (~ after 6 days is when it is safe to titrate - increase the dose, which should always be initiated by your physician).

Avatar f tn He is an active addict who is not shooting up at the moment but that is Not a sign of recovery- just a sign that he might be trying to convince you (and himself) that doing this is somehow better. Also the street price for prescription pain medication is very high and it is just as addictive as heroin. It's not a new path - it's a circle in the cycle of opioid addiction. Good luck and God bless.
Avatar m tn Just a quick run down , I have cronic jointpain with a very physical job and my doc was handling everything ok with fentanyl and 30 mg oxycodone. I was able to get up and within an hour proceed to work. Well this Doc leaves town with an apology, a refill and a good luck wish. I have since ran out of all meds and found no doctor that wants to deal with pain.....Ya'll know the drill. I finally get a walk in to refer me to PM 40 days out. No meds? To bad deal with it they say.
Avatar m tn My OMG experience was when I was prescribed Fentanyl. I wear the Fentanyl Patch and change it once every 48hrs. The medication lasts up to 72hrs. and works around the clock. Maybe this is an option for you. You are less likely to use too much of the Fentanyl because it's a Patch. No pills to take, therefore, harder to run out. In my opinion, you will need long term Pain Management care and I recommend the Patch. Also, I have only had one increase in 2 years.
1326416 tn?1370930601 The DEA is really cracking down on the 30 mg roxi's and oxy's as they are a hot commodity on the street as you can alter the delivery method on a couple or three of them and voilla! You have the same effect as the old formulated oxycontin 80s. It totally ***** for us as pain patients as Purdue Pharma may begin to screw around with the oxy IR meds like they did the old oxycontin and kill an effective medication all to protect the drug addicts.
Avatar f tn Some of you know I've had a very bad flare-up of fibromyalgia after a very long reprieve of it. Despite all the medication I'm on for pain for the RSD, arthritis, etc., it just isn't touching the fibro stuff. My legs ache and are so heavy. I had a bit of reprieve yesterday and thought I was over the worst of it, but I had another sleepless night and woke up feeling awful again. There were days last week that I was going up and down the stairs on my bum and hands and knees.
230948 tn?1235847929 a woman in my area was arrested and convicted for dressing up as a nursing assistant, walking in to assisted living centers, and stealing the Fentanyl patches off of patients, and then selling them on the street, where they apparently bring a high price. That kind of garbage is what gives such strong pain relieving options a bad name.
Avatar n tn Curiously, methadone, one of the worlds least expensively manufactured drugs is twice the price of morphine here in Mexico. I reduced my intake down to 90mg, or three tabs a day and tried to quit but perhaps because of my age, I was not able to tolerate it. I will continue to taper off, reducing 15mg. (1/2 a tablet) every five days until I try again, but I suspect it will still be extremely difficult. I am hoping someone can suggest something that will make quitting more tolerable.
Avatar m tn or atleast it was back in the day until the price of them skyrocketed past $50 each! agh..Hearing that and knowing or atleast believing it was the same made me try heroin because i just couldn't afford the OC. From what i heard its literally one molecule off from heroin, how true is this? You mean to tell me our government is allowing these drug companies to give us synthetic heroin? Thats crazy to me, but too late now i guess.. Please anyone with some incite on this, let me know.
179856 tn?1333550962 With SO many people becoming so heavily addicted to Oxy's they needed to come out with something stronger?! Now this, I just don't really understand - we all know pain but to make Fentanel pills?!!!! Holy God. Cephalon seeks ok for new use for cancer pain drug By Linda Loyd INQUIRER STAFF WRITER Cephalon Inc. said today it submitted a supplemental new drug application to U.S. regulators to sell its cancer pain medicine Fentora for chronic pain, such as lower back and neuropathic pain.
647120 tn?1256605251 Hey Busygrl, There is Oxycontin but because it has a high rate of abuse and a high street price therefore many physicians are not comfortable prescribing it. It is slow release oxycodone. And yes it sounds like you are going through the normal stages of CP acceptance. I did it too and sometimes I "slip" back to the denial and I think I will get better. That doesn't happen very often anymore. You will experience stages a grief like process.
Avatar m tn I have bad chronic pain but have found coming down (and very nearly off at the moment) of Fentanyl, morphine, oxycodone, oycontin, Neurontin ... nearly everything but methadone (thanks to Gnarly and others here) that my pain is actually less now. There's also a medication called Nucynta. It's been used in Europe for a while, not as long here. I tried it back in January and it did eliminate some of my nerve pain from the first dose and it hasn't come back.
Avatar n tn thank god I have never needed the fentanyl patch, but this is what I learned watching a PBS special on pain management for cancer patients. From what I learned on this show, plus a little net research, the Fentanyl patch is probably the single most effective treatment for chronic pain going. Yes, it costs a bunch -- apparently several thousand per month.
Avatar m tn I can understand that without insurance, it can be hard, due to the expense, but if you think about it, you are paying street price for a much higher dose than you would need to be maintained on. If you can get tapered down, the sub clinic prices may be much more affordable than you think. I just think you would benefit from trying to look into your options here.
Avatar n tn patch info: duragesic (fentanyl transdermal system) as far as i know they come in 3 strengths- 2.5, 5.0, and 10.
Avatar m tn He gave it to me for a few months and then wanted to cut me off the norcos and put me on a fentanyl patch. I tried it for a day and felt so wierd. That was it for me. I c/t it. but am still in so much pain. I hate my docs and here I am. He told me I would have to search the earth for someone in a white coat to give me what I wanted. i was treated like a drug addict more than a dependent. i was so pissed I told him off. I have never been treated that way before, it was horrible.
Avatar f tn Only if it happened to them could they possibly understand. Now the pain patch Fentanyl/Duragesic is in the crosshairs. I was prescribed them when I still had insurance. A one month supply was over a thousand dollars. I was told to take it because it worked and was safe. Now I have a seizure disorder because of it.
Avatar m tn You might be better moving in with your dad if that would help you kick the habit and take you away from the people that are helping you with your habit. I'm assuming that you are buying the 80's on the street, those are not usually prescribed to people your age. If you need any help this is the right place to get it. I'll give you what ever information you want having gone through w/d from fentanyl which is the worse stuff to get off of.
211940 tn?1267884866 Socrates, if you are able to get a prescription for Gabapentin, shop it around. Call all the drug stores in your area to get the cheapest price. Don't rely on Walmart to be the cheapest. It's not. And as Gabapentin dosages go up, the price goes up, of course. I'm taking 4 300 mg. tablets per day of Gabapentin, which does help some, but it's costing me about $90 a month without health insurance.
1508881 tn?1313118501 I've found my best relief so far has been a combination of the Fentanyl patch (only the Duragesic brand) and oxycodone for breakthrough pain, though I have to take a very high dosage of the oxycodone every 4 hours, which sort of seems to defeat the purpose of being on a long-acting drug. My tolerance is pretty high now and because of that, I'm giving myself a little break on the oxycodone, though it's hard. I've been on Cymbalta and am looking to get off it.
4113881 tn?1415853876 i do live in excruciating pain, but the mind numbing effects of the fentanyl was too high of a price to pay for 45% reduction in pain. i read this site for hours and hours a day. blessed to have found this place.
Avatar m tn Will it and can it assist you in getting off the oxy? Yes....but there is a price to pay for that, too. And one you may not choose to pay. I was on it for 28 days.....I was NOT educated or informed prior to being referred to the psych dr who prescribed it I was such a sick,not mess, I didn't ask questions which is NOT me at all. I was on A LOT of hydrocodone but hydros are a short acting opiate (as are oxys) and subs (suboxone) is a VERY long acting opioid.
1047376 tn?1290161338 Hi, my names is mark, I am from Independence Missouri and Im 20, I have had a problem since the age of 15-16 with opiates, I have always had easy access to opiates since my mom had stage 4 cancer, she used to get 385 30 mg Oxycodone, 120 80 mg's of oxycodone, 40's 20's , Fentanyl and many other things, so getting them was never a problem, even in high school I used to eat about 10-14 30mgs in just an 8 hour period, but that was awhile ago, I have been eating vicodin to ween myself off, but I tak
Avatar f tn Need your opinion on how to handle this dilemma! I just picked up my Fentanyl 50 patches and my Percocet 10/325's and got home and opened the bag and realized that they had given me a HUGE bottle of my oxy's. I poured them out and instead of them giving me 45 Percocet's they gave me 145. It's too late to call them tonight so I'll call them tomorrow but need to know should I also notify my PM Dr. of the error.
703238 tn?1297101958 When your doctor decides you don't need them or your street dealer decides to charge double the price you are paying now. You will buy those drugs anyway regardless of what your daily bills are such as housing, electricity, and food. What then. The people I have seen that do this resort to selling their bodies or whatever the street seller asks for. Please Please go see a psychiatrist. It will only help you.
Avatar m tn DO NOT put up with anyone taking away from your comfort by stealing. You are the one who will pay the ultimate price by loosing your Doctor. Your roommate will go on....you may not. I urge you to rethink this whole process. What is happening here is wrong and will injure you in the long run both mentally and physically. I hope you can get on the right path and soon. Please take care and I wish you luck in the future.
Avatar f tn I think my problem was no aftercare. Plus, it is just too easy to go down the street to an urgent care and get your drug of choice. How does anyone stay clean when your d.o.c. is something that has a legitimate purpose? Why can other people have these in their house for years and not touch them and I cannot?? I am not clean or really trying to get clean, so I probably don't deserve to post on here with you wonderful, strong people. Just know that I am reading all of your posts. Everyday.
247910 tn?1189759431 Then Heroin a few years later was a drug that I fell in love with.........many years later in the late 90's I found my true drug Dilaudid or Fentanyl injections................. Just thinking about it today I can taste in my mouth and feel the warmth and rush of shooting Dilaudid or Fentanyl directly into my blood stream and how great it made me feel.......... I could walk into a room of beautiful models and know that I could pick one and leave with her or do anything else for that matter.....
Avatar n tn I was a nurse, so wastages were to good to flush down the sink. I also started using street dilaudid. After enough time and money spent, I went to a methadone clinic. I detoxed after two years of treatment. I stayed clean for 6 months. Back to wastages and street dilaudid (my drug of choice), I relapsed 3 times. I finally ran back to the methadone clinic. It saved my life at the time. I do not recommend methadone for all addicts. I knew what I was getting into.
