Smoking fentanyl gel

Common Questions and Answers about Smoking fentanyl gel


Avatar n tn I thought is was fairly easy to get off fentanyl. It was harder for me to quit smoking. I used the 100 mcg/hr. patch. After a few years every time I thought that my pain was getting better I would decrease my dosage by 10 percent when I put on the next patch. If that worked? I would decrease it another 10 % . If my pain got worse I would add 10% back. so on and so on. Since the patches are designed so that exposing 100% of a 100mcg/hr. to your skin will give you 100mc/hr.
Avatar n tn heres a outright question for you, no rudeness is intended, are you wearing them, eating them or smoking the gel? There is NO way to wean down and avoid withdraw of some extent besides going to Cali and have $25,000 and go through the 2 week detox that they medicate you through and it's basicially a medically induced coma for 6 days and then the remaining 9 days you stay on the hospital grounds and you are superivised to make sure you don't have any adverse reactions to coming down.
Avatar f tn They wouldn't have stayed on with a stapler, and have people literally rip them off because I was smoking and they thought they were doing me a favour. I have had the little ones pop off and I have never found them again. This happend with a few hours of each other. If my husband hadn't seen it with his own eyes he wouldn't have believe me. I have even taken them off in my sleep. Does any one have any questions about them.
Avatar f tn FEntanyl was not a good drug for me but I used both the gel-filled and the mylan type. I could never keep the gel filled on, even with tape on the edges. I had much less trouble with the Mylan brand. Glad to hear you're getting decent pain relief.
1638239 tn?1300407802 I'm no longer using the Fentanyl patch -- just been off it for about 2 weeks. But, I was using the generic Fentanyl patch from the Watson brand. They would not stay on, so I called the Watson company, they took all my information (I thought they were about to send me some "patch covers"), then they just simply said to use waterproof medical tape on all the edges (not just the corners).
Avatar f tn Yvonne, I have been wondering about you, and Cory and I have put you on our prayer list. I am sorry that you are going through all of this. Do the Fentanyl patches not work for pain? That nausea thing can be horrible. This chemo I am going to try Emend. Have you tried that yet? There are so many drugs out there, and if they keep switching them, than maybe they will luck onto some that will work. Take care of you.
198154 tn?1337790865 Drag yourself to your local pharmacy with this for a shopping list - 1) Imodium AD - and get the SYRUP - you can also get the pills or gel-caps as they will come in handy later.. you can get the generic **** too, just make sure that the ONLY active drug is loperamide hcl .. get a big bottle, hell, get 3 or 4 .. and no, it doesn't have a "pleasant cherry taste" .. this brings us to the next item - 2) Fruit juice - carbonated beverages won't do ya a lot of good...
Avatar f tn I am most recently on the fentanyl patch. I had moved overseas and the country did not carry oxycontin, only morphine and fentanyl so i started using fentanyl. I recently came back to the states for vacation and went to one of my old doctors for a refill of my patches, I also went to my old pain doc who gave me a script.
408795 tn?1324939275 I completely respect that point of view. We are brothers in respect to our past. The regular patch contains a gel that can be abused even by smoking it. The new patch Durogesic (note the "o" instead of the "a") doesn't have a gel. Instead the drug is in a plastic matrix. It's mostly in the European market. At any rate, if fentanyl hits that spot then it's bad for you. I never got that much out of fentanyl or methadone either.
Avatar n tn addicts like myself cut them open to get at the fentanyl. cooking and straining can do wonders for gel. hell, here i am talking about shooting again. i've got to go.
5763738 tn?1373850392 2 years later and I have tried heroin (snorting), Oxycontinx80’s (3 a day), smoking fentanyl gel (2-3 25mg patches a day), massive doses of poppy pod tea and pretty much any opiate I could get my grubby little hands on. I have gone through the withdrawals so many times in the past 2 years; I hate them more than anything in the world.
Avatar n tn So i got blood tested and my level was 125. So i ask to beput on test. We started with andro gel 10mg for about 3 months and i was tested again . I had not noctice any change and my level was 150. So i ask for the injections and we started at 1cc of 200 mg depo test a month. I did it for two months and just went back this monday for blood work and my testosterone level had dropped to 135! So nw he pu me on 1cc every two weeks. I will make sure i ask them to check my glands out!
Avatar n tn No I never have done herion although I understand that Fentanyl (duragesic) is practically the same as heroin. I was on a 100 microgram patch for a year. I didnt do the Thomas Recipe, just took a multi vitamin each day as I wasnt eating much. This is day 6 and Im feeling better but still lethargic. It was easier than I thought though. No runs or sweats, just felt lousy and had trouble sleeping. Hang in there, you can do this.
Avatar n tn There are other methods of pain relief that may want to ask your Dr about the fentanyl patch (spelling?) There are others on this forum who have more experience in these matters of chronic pain relief. I can tell you that if you are going to come off of the meds you have come to the right place for support. We have a group of "angels" here who have been lifesavers to a lot of us. What is important is that you are in the right frame of mind and body for your self and your children.
Avatar m tn From what I understand Buprenex is the form buprenorphine that is used for pain and I dont believe it is legal in US. I know the buprenex comes as injections, but again buprenorphine for pain management in my opinion is not the best idea anyways. Like stated above if you have a serious condition that can cause breakout pain, you dont want to be suboxone, because your basicly powerless to stop it.
Avatar n tn 40 years old Nov. 1st. And I hate smoke. Gosh I'm cranky...and looking for excuses, right?!!! Well, atleast I'm not in pain today and starting to feel better. Thanks so much everyone here. I finally found a place to share my thoughts where I won't feel ostracized.
Avatar n tn I've been on a duragesic fentanyl patch for over 7 years, and am trying to get off it. I've cut back from 2 100's every other day, and am now down to 1 100 every 3 days. The first day I was so first. I thought, well, this is really nothing until that afternoon, and the following days. Then I found out what its all about. At first it just messed with my head, and some of my body. But now I'm experiencing periodic sharp pains, and would sure like to be over it.
Avatar n tn I was on this dosage because they needed to pull me off of 2 fentanyl patches of 100 mg's each arm. I was crushed in a motorcycle accident. (no need for gruesome details), and needed severe pain management. Thus methadone was the answer to get me off other strong opioids. I am weaning and I am in hell.
429155 tn?1205676864 Still not got much of an appitite though, I am taking lots of vitamins, and loads of water, smoking slashed in half.. I have just recieved this post and it is a bit of a worry. Hey, I've been clean for 3 weeks, and I just want to share what's going on, kind of to forwarn....I hope this doesn't happen to you...I started sleeping fine. after the initial withdrawls passed-after a week or so...then I started to have panic attacks and felt depressed at about 4 pm-6 pm every day.
