  • I wanna know how fentanyl and oxycontin taken together like me works for patients?
    I have been taking these meds. For the last 10months due to a auto accident that's happened in 1995!! And have bee in chronic Pain ever since, had to resign from my good paying job!! I could no longer work due to the constant took my Dr. And I over 3 yrs. To come up with this regimen to even get out of bed to be mobile!! I need to take care of all my adopted animal's, my two adopted children and my elderly mother!!! It I did not have these medications
    ations I would be bed ridden!!
  • Does the fentanyl patch cause *extreme* hair loss?
    38 year old female, with a normal menstrual cycle, though it isn't as regular as it used to be...age or drug reasons? I've been on 50 mcg fentanyl patch, changing every 48 hours. I've been losing extreme amounts of head hair, scary amounts. I started using the patch this year/2014, in February, after suffering a concussion from a blackout due to sleep deprivation and over medicated with prescription pain pills (ER blood work confirmed I had the scripted amounts of drugs in my just happened to be TOO much). The Fentanyl patches replaced 20 mg oxycodone IR, 4 daily, 2 mg clomazepan at bedtime, Meloxicam, Plus a 25 mcg Fentanyl patch every 72 hours. Before this mixture of drugs, I had been on morphine, methadone (prescribed for pain, not substance abuse/withdrawal), percocet. I was taken off of percocet after complaining about urinary retention and put on Oxycodone IR and Meloxicam.

    I do believe I recall losing hair then too, but now it's extremely hard to notice, the shower drain cover is thick with fallout hair from a single shower. I used to have really thick hair. My hair is long, goes to the small of my back. I've always had to get my hair cut in long layered thin out my thick mane. Now, that isn't a problem anymore, as my hair is so very thin.

    I'm going in to my PCP today/5-19-14 to get blood work done to check my thyroid, and I'm going to mention my hair loss, something I've not brought up before.

    My daily vitamin and supplements include *quality*: Fish Oil capsules, biotin, B-1, B-12, 1000 mg - calcium citrate chews or powder, D-3 chewable, glucosamine & chondroitin, multi-vitamin, iron - 29 mg, vitamin C - 500 mg, fiber capsules, colace capsules.

    (I take the iron and vitamin C in the morning and the calcium and extra vitamin D3 at night)

    *Unless the supplement is strictly for bariatric patients, I double up the dose of it. Yes, I had gastric bypass in 2007, lost nearly 100 pounds...Yay! Also, I take whatever supplement I can find in a chewable/gummy, liquid/powder or sublingual forms, for best absorption.

    My only twice daily prescription medication is a 500 mg Keppra tablet, which I've been taking since 2003 after my AVM induced stroke.

    My pain management doctor knew ( I stopped seeing him...I think he was too careless and flippant, wanting to rush to the next "person" in , money, money...for him!) about all my drug & supplements, my PCP as well.

    I hope I get an answer soon about my hair needs to stop, I'm a woman...I need hair!!

    Do you suffer from periodontal bone loss or periodontal disease, or bone loss around teeth after taking this drug? Are your sodium levels low after taking this drug? I am a dentist and keep my teeth plaque free, but have had periodontal bone loss for which, I believe, must be drug related.
  • What are the side effects while taking fentanyl with garcinia cambogia
    I'm having headaches flushing/blushing in the face, tired, dizziness. I think that I might be allergic to it the garcinia cambogia ultra. I need to know if I can be on the fentanyl patch and take Garcinia Cambogia Ultra?

  • Rash, allergic reaction to claritin d 24 hrs
    Began taking Claritin 24 hours one day ago and immediaty broke out in hives.
  • Morphine and amenorrhea
    For over ten years I have been taking high doses of morphine for chronic pain nerve pain. At one point I was taking 400mg of morphine a day. By splitting up the doses I was able to get it down to 300mg a day. My periods stopped almost immediately, even when i was still taking small doses before I was even raised to 100+ mg a day.
    Now I am taking (using) Fentanyl #75 patches plus Fentanyl #12 patches and they work great with no up-n-down from pills wearing off. I have been off morphine and using Fentanyl for almost one year now. I still don't get my period, though. They stopped when I was 43 and I don't miss them at all!! But when I read that there was no link between morphine and Amenorrhea I had to tell my tale...
  • Horrendous -nearly died from fentanyl
    I took Fentanyl 25mcg/hr patch. It should last 3 days. After 24 hours, there was no effect. My doctor recommended adding a second patch. Within 6 hours, I was vomiting every 15 minutes. I removed both patches. I could not even keep down a sip of water for 30 hours. My brother was with me, and he thought I had died twice.
    Terrifying - ineffective - dangerous
  • I wish i had never taken ambien
    Ambien was prescribed after my sleep study showed severe sleep latency and awakening. In the five hours I slept I woke 85 times and had only 5 minutes of deep sleep. However, the doctors couldn't make a recommendation because they could detect no cause for the poor sleep pattern. My doctor offered Ambien and since I had obviously needed the help sleeping I took it. For the next 10 years I suffered incredible depression. For example I remember laying in bed staring at the ceiling with tears rolling into my ears but I was too tired to wipe them away and realizing that I wanted to die so badly but there was no way I could have done anything about it. The worst effects were the loss of consciousness and the verbal abuse that I heaped on my husband and son. An example of each : I actually had sex with my husband that I could not remember amd hundreds of other actions and discussions. My husband started asking every morning what I remembered of the night before. He could usually tell when I was Ambien-awake (his name for it) he said my eyes would get glassy and my voice cadence would be off. Unfortunately my oldest son was going from infant to 8 years old at this time and any ifraction or even without provocation I would scream horrible things in his face. I don't remember much of it but what I do remember causes me enormous regret. He went from a happy and active toddler to a terrified amd anxious pre-teen. We are still working through the effects of this behavior. Finally, after a surprise pregnancy (see example above) My baby was placed in NICU and I stayed at the Ronald McDonald House and my son and husband visited when they could. Somehow my Ambien prescription was stopped and so I began going through withdrawal but I had no idea what was going on. My vision became so blurred thqt I couldn't identify items unless they were very large and then only by colors. When I visited my son those several days in the NICU I couldn't walk straight and would try to aim myself toward my goal until I hit a wall and I would correct course. These things didn't bother me at all but the nurses in the NICU were with me nearly the entire day because they were afraid I would have a stroke or who knew. Finally, after discussing these symptoms we decided to gradually stop the medication. Thankfully, i didn't have any withdrawal symptoms then. I did feel like an incredibly heavy and black blanket had been lifted away. Ever since I have had very little trouble with depression despite the continuation of sleep disturbance and pain. On a scale from one to 10 for depression with 10 being committing suicide I think my 10 years on the medicine was probably an 8.5 (I desperately wanted to die) and since stopping the medication I don't think it has gone above a 4 and is usually a 2 or 3. I will spend the rest of my life trying to repair the damage my verbal abuse caused my oldest son and my husband. For 10 years they lived in fear of my rages if I had a bad episode with Ambien.
  • Cfs/fibro, migraine
    A strange thing happened when I started taking the Chantix for my smoking cessation...
    As horrible as they were, and as bad as I have prayed for them to go away, I did not even notice that I didn't have the excruciating headaches anymore!!
    I stopped taking the chantix and the headaches gradually came back but it took me awhile to make this correlation. Once I did, I started taking the chantix again. it started working immediately... taking the migraines and neck pain away again! Now, I can take 1/2 of a pill every other day and that seems to keep the migraines away! There are side effects and I don't know if it would work for everyone but it sure worked for me!
