Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 month ago):
My grandmother (94 years old and 95 pounds) is currently in a rehabilitation facility after a hospital stay for a UTI she suffered. She was fine at the hospital but has now been given the Fentanyl Patch, along with a much stronger dose of Vicodin for her pain and suddenly became delusional and is loudly moaning incoherent gibberish for hours straight. She is now refusing food and medication. I completely understand that she is 94 years of age but this came on so suddenly and I feel that she may be overmedicated. I also know that UTI's can cause some of these symptoms but she has been treated for that and in the past has suffered mild symptoms and once treated bounces back.
From this study (1 month ago):
Just want to know if any of these drugs increase blood sugar. I have bone mets from breast cancer.
From this study (2 months ago):
My teeth and gums have gone from excellent to extreme since my first day on the actiq suckers. I recently had to have 3 crowns done and one tooth extracted... all due to my use of the actiqs.
