Avatar n tn I don't know abt. the patch, it seems like it would prolong the withdrawl. Possibly delay the inevitable but give some relief. Are you withdrawling voluntarily or till your next prescription ? Usually by day 5 a person starts to feel better and alot of the really bad stuff is over. I really do think the fentanly is a bad idea but I know how being addicted goes, we just want it to go away. I hope the best for you and I wish I knew more abt. your situation to give a good opinion.
Avatar f tn I have so many loved ones addicted to them i divorced after 12 years of marriage because of it and am going through it with a wonderful man that i have been with for 5 years now. With my mom and sister i have noticed that they have mood swings really bad they will fall asleep in the middle of a conversation talk out of there heads they have always abused zanaxs and they act like they have been doin them.
Avatar f tn There is also an option to ADD another long acting medication in with the fentanyl. This has been done for other members here that have an extremely high opioid tolerance. 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.
1326023 tn?1274867436 I found a few charts and they are all basically similar. 315-404mgs of morphine is equivilant to about 100 mcg of fentanyl. Thats oral morphine. The IV morphine chart is different. I do know that fentany is one of the strongest opiate medications available.. I believe it is much stronger than oral morphine. At least that is what I have heard and read. I also saw a show on TLC (Dr. G Medical Examiner) and she also stated fentanyl is the strongest opiate medication you can be prescribed.
Avatar m tn It is not a good idea to take non-prescribed narcs without your doctor's knowledge. A.) It can be dangerous. B.) If/when they find out, you'll be detoxing "really" fast. C.) It will mess up your detox schedule. It sounds like your doctor is doing the right thing. When reaching higher and higher, escalating dosages of opiates, the ratio of therapeutic benefit to side effects gets worse.
Avatar n tn Is this morphine or Fentanyl? Are you sure it's point 75 (.75) or is it 75? What is the admin. route?
Avatar m tn Oral 24-hour Morphine (mg/day) Fentanyl Patch (mcg/hr) 225 to 314 mg/day 75 mcg/hr However, this is just a calculation based on the limited medical information I was presented. Since I do not have your liver and kidney status, it will be difficult for me to recommend the exact dosing regimen. Please consult your provider using this as a guideline. 2. If you are on Opana ER 30mg, why are you still taking Dilaudid?
Avatar m tn So I'm on the Fentanyl 25mcg patch, switched from 180mg of Morphine ER because of tolerance. As I've said here before, but reiterating for those who may not know, it doesn't work for me. The Fentanyl that is. It was pointed out that the dosage is most likely low and I should be on the 50mcg patch, but I'm not a big fan of the patch in general.
Avatar f tn My history is a bit complicated and I had other meds involved as well as some health issues. Tapering is the way to go with Fentanyl, if possible.
Avatar m tn Grapefruit does interfere with the metabolizing of many medicines causing adverse effects, increasing OR decreasing the effects. There are other fruits that are hybrids of grapefruit that will cause the same effect.
Avatar n tn I have been on Fentanyl patches for about 6 months and it was prescribed to wean me off of Norco 10/325 2 pills 4 x day after a surgery. I got as high as 75 mcg patch of Fentanyl every 3 days and then I developed some kind of allergy. The Pain Dr. says the allergy is to the adhesive, not the fentanyl. I am now down to 37 mcg every 2 days because the patches itch like crazy. I wake up in the morning and my patches are scratched off(even withTagederm) and there is blood on my sheets. My Dr.
Avatar f tn Her solution was to say she would prescribe the same morphine equivalent medication of morphine sulphate, but she wrote a prescription for thirty morphine equivalents less than the fentanyl patches. My pharmacist did not stock the medication and thought she meant to prescribe something for breakthrough pain. When I told him this was not the case, he offered to call the facility.
Avatar n tn ve been using a lot because I already have a high tolerance to opiates, what I wanted to know is if withdrawal symtoms of Morphine are any worse than Tramadol, because I think I may need to progress to that eventually. I have permanent nerve damage.
Avatar f tn I have been taking a 50 mcg patch every 3 days for about a year...unfortunately, we got new insurance...I was paying $15 before, but the past few months its been like $350 each time, which we obviously can't afford. 3 days ago I took my last patch and I'm scared to death...I have to work the next few days! My dr. gave me some morphine to help with the transition...will that help? I'm worried about my pain levels, obviously, but even more worried about the withdrawal symptoms...
Avatar f tn I've been tapering down my medications (and made some great progress.) 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.
Avatar n tn If you are in the fentanyl patch and I was on that too about 5 years ago, but it burned my skin, so they put me on morphine er, I was taking 60mg twice daily and had 100 of the 15mg fast acting morphine and that was not helping me anymore. Morphine is not the answer either, gives me a headache, I have been on all of them, so I decide that I had enough, started to wean myself off slowly. Talked to my doctors and this is the way they prefer.
1345254 tn?1325918041 Fentanyl patches are 80-100 times stronger than morphine. You MUST be opioid tolerant to use the Fentanyl patches. Opioid tolerant means taking at least 60 mg of morphine daily for 2 weeks or more. It is recommended that opioids are started on the lowest dose required to effectively control the pain. As tolerance develops, naturally more opioid is required to achieve the same amount of pain relief.
Avatar f tn You use it to convert your fentanyl dosage to an equivalent morphine dose, and then find the equivalent morphine dose to oxymorphone, Generally when converting between opiates, doctors will reduce the new medication strength by a certain percentage to account for incomplete cross tolerance, which is a boost in analgesia you get from rotating from one kind of opiate to another. You can find equal analgesic tables, and apps for calculating equivalent dosing online.
Avatar f tn My question is how bad will the withdrawal be after only taking it for a little more than a week. I took something called kratom to help with the morphine. Will this help with fentanyl? I have 3 patches left. Is there anything I can do with those to lessen the withdrawal. Ive been reading all these posts and its got me really spooked. Please any info is greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn IR morphine just 3 a day and 2 dilaudid a day. I also wear fentanyl patches 100 mcg/h. And 50mcg/h. Change every 72 hrs. Ok with me changing the morphine will it put me into withdrawals? Please help answer!
Avatar f tn I was 150lbs before and my family doctor who I have known for 30 years want to do anything he can to help me with my pain, so he prescribed fentanyl 50mcg. I was on the patch for about 6 months but one day, looked in the mirror and it scared the hell out of me. I looked like death. I stepped on a scale and found I was down to 108 lbs!!!! That sickened me. I was also on morphine as a back up pain reliever. I had to get off this stuff. FOR ME, ....I went cold turkey.
Avatar m tn We agreed that with Fentanyl being widely abused, it would be appropriate to get a urine drug screen. Approximately 9 hours after the medication was allegedly administered, I tested negative for opiates. According to the FDA, the half-life of fentanyl is approximately 218 minutes. How many half-lifes would it take before the substance would no longer be detectable in urine? Who would I report this possible issue to? Thanks.
Avatar m tn He has had some eally bad experiences with Morphine and he is scared to use the patch. I told him I would try to ask my new friends on MedHelp first. Does anyone out there have a clue if this is true?, so he can put his patch on and kill his pain. Thanks............
