Avatar n tn Fentanyl withdrawal can be very difficult. Call your doctor. They may be able to give you something that will make it a little easier. It's always best to talk to the doctor before stopping a medication so you can experience the least side effects possible.
Avatar f tn t have any choice as I had begun experiencing serious side effects (that could have killed me) from the patch (I also was on 50mcg), so I HAD to stop cold turkey. Even though my doctor switched me to another narcotic, the withdrawal from the fentanyl was horrible. Fortunately, I was already in the hospital, so they were able to really watch me closely and give me some medications to help, but it definitely was not pleasant.
Avatar f tn With fent I found the withdrawal period was much longer and more intense. What fentanyl dosage were you on? Why did you doctor refuse to fill?
Avatar f tn But I think the Fentanyl may be covering the hydrocodone withdrawal. Fentanyl is very strong and the withdrawals can be long and difficult. Maybe you are one of the lucky ones but it's possible that 'it just hasn't hit you yet. I found the first few drops of the Fentanyl were easy but the lower I got the harder it became. I hope you can escape them and find a way to manage your pain.
Avatar f tn Forgot to change my fentanyl patches & now I've gone into withdrawal till they kick back in again. I'm on 112mg every 3days & I've been on them 3yrs. The worse symptom is my restless arm's. Any suggestions to ease it?
Avatar n tn It is best take suboxone while your already in withdrawal. Because if you have fentanyl in your system as you take the suboxone, the suboxone will kick out all of the remaining fentanyl in your system causing you to feel uncomfortable. So take the suboxon as your in withdraw. The physician that prescribe it would rather see you walk in the office in withdrawal mode rather than high mode.
Avatar n tn One of the biggest complaints with fentanyl withdrawal is the powerful hot flashes and cold sweats. It happens if you're either over- or under-medicated. This happens when withdrawing from any kind of opiate, but fentanyl seems to make it even worse. Other symptoms include nausea/ vomiting, diarrhea, lack of appetite, restless leg syndrome and muscle cramps, generalized pain throughout the body, and terrible insomnia.
Avatar f tn Went to my pain management Dr today after my experience of withdrawal from fentanyl patch. I have a kick *** team! My Dr was completely compassionate about my situation and the Hell i was going thru. Of course she did mention that she wished i would have called to let her know what was going on and she would have saved me from a an expensive ER visit but still understood my situation. She didn't get upset about my choice nor about the distruction of my fentanyl patches.
Avatar f tn I am on 200 mcg fentanyl patches X 48 hours. Due to the hot sticky weather, an allergy to adhesive overlays and sweating caused by a systemic staph infection infection my patches are not sticking at all to me. They do however stick to clothing, sheets, the floor and each other very well. I replaced a few at times because I needed some help with the pain (end stage osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, RA and systemic lupus.
3222105 tn?1346080471 t wish this on anyone but is this normal for withdrawal of Fentanyl? OH-and forgive me for dropping my business into my post, but it's the only thing I have going and the only way I've been able to even think about freedom from this beast. If anyone has further insight, all is welcome!
Avatar m tn How long does withdrawal last? I have been on fentanyl for about one year, 100 every 48 hrs. This was prescribed for me after my cancer surgery.
Avatar m tn I hope i am posting this in the right place, if not could someone help me with where to post it? Please? I have been injecting fentanyl for less than two weeks. My question is are the withdrawals going to take as as lon as someone who has bee on the fentanyl patch? I hope not because the half life of the patch is days and the injectible is 186 min i think. I am hoping the withdrawal from the injection will be much shorter than from the patch.
Avatar f tn I started Fentanyl in May and it has been extremely helpful for me. The goal of a medication is to reduce your pain enough so that you can function more and do more for yourself, and friends and family. If the hydrocodone left you suffering in pain most of the time and unable to do things, the fentanyl should definitely be much stronger and should help you have a more normal life. On the flip side, you don't want to be so drugged that you don't do anything either.
