Discussions that mention acetaminophen

Pain Management board


Dear Pepper,

You are welcome for anything and everything. Your screen name always catches my eye and guarantees a view (possibly a reply) from me! Pepper, you have a large number of replies, so please know that the knowledge, sharing, and "thank you's" go both ways! I've learned a great deal from you, too. And, I don't say these things if I don't mean them! Sincerely, Jon (Conductor)

Dear Brian,

You have regularly made me realize the need to learn. When I started following your story, I read with awe at your difficult plight! And, Brian, you never needed anyone to "set you straight" concerning the knowledge!! Sincerely, Jon (Conductor)

To Everyone,

(I don't usually like to follow this same way of answering, but I will use it for now.)

This whole fentanyl patch use idea keeps morphing, doesn't it? I see that we started years ago with just the Brand Name by Janssen. Then, it changed to having Janssen, Sandoz, and Mylan. Now, there is an additional generic brand. I don't remember the company's name, right now. Plus, people have all sorts of different ways to keep the patches on the skin! I wouldn't be surprised to see that we might need to start another thread to keep this idea going, if needed.

Sincerely,
Jon (Conductor)

P.S. This is to Ex--because she was reponding to me when she mentioned it. Anyone can answer, of course, but I address it to Ex. What is Oxyfast? Is it another form of Percocet or Oxycodone without the acetaminophen? Thanks! Jon (Conductor)

Oxyfast is liquid Oxycodone made by Purdue Pharma (same Manuf as OC). Another equal brand is "Roxicodone" in liquid. Each bottle is 30cc or 30 droppers. The dropper that comes with it is almost identical to baby Tylenol. The dropper has 4 lines on it....Bottom one is 5Mg, next is 10Mg, three fourths full is 15Mg, and the top line or one dropper full is 20Mg. Works within 5-10 minutes, max. What I like about it (besides working quick) is that you can titrate the dose depending on your pain. I guess you can do that with pills, but it's easier with a liquid dropper. I use two bottles per month for BT.

I have been on Fentanyl for 8 years. I currently wear 2 patches at a time. I use 1: 100mcg plus 1 25mcg patch. My dr. has them prescribed for me every 2 days instead of 3 days (72hrs) because they are hard to keep on after showering, sweating etc. I also us a bit of tape around the edges. Tagaderm is the best to hold them in place but they are expensive and I find that regular medical tape works well. I broke my back 10 years ago and I have tried every pain medicine there is out there. Fentanyl works the best plus it has no acetaminophen like most pain pills. Fentanyl is actually a man made synthetic Opiate that is between 80-100 times stronger than morphine. if you have any questions I would be happy to answer them. Thanks SETH
