    Fentanyl for Polyneuropathie

    Now that I’ve tried all sorts of painkillers, the neurologist told me about fentanyl. I have, as far as the effectiveness of the drug is concerned, made very good experiences so far with it. The pain is reasonably bearable, the painless condition lasts about 62 hours, which is a huge step forward for my quality of life. Compatibility of the drug is in the middle range, as with all medicines. At the beginning I had hardly any side effects, but now manifest a few things that are also not unique, but probably due to fentanyl. The biggest problem for me is the chronic constipation (but can also be caused by other tablets), this thing is very difficult to deal with. I’ve tried all sorts of remedies … mostly without success. Increasingly stressful are the sweats, especially at night, these occur in alternation with cold sensations. The fatigue comes in turns, there are days full of resilience and others, where you could only sleep. Despite these things, I am very glad that finally a drug was prescribed that combats my pain.

    Side effects: Sweats; Constipation

    Fentanyl for Fibromyalgia

    Had after about 12 days, the feeling, not to wake up. I just slept and was knocked out. However, when I was reasonably awake I felt really good. Finally, the pain was no longer felt. However, with regard to returning to work, Fentanyl was not an alternative – being awake at work is handy. So I dropped it, sometimes with a heavy heart, partially relieved. Further NW see below.

    Side effects: Vomit; Anorexia; Constipation; Fatigue

    Fentanyl for Pain (acute); Pain (chronic)

    For decades I have had severe pain (cervical vertebrae and back) with constant headaches. For about 3 years I go to the pain therapy and take the Fentanyl patch 25 mg / h. Unfortunately, the dosage is no longer sufficient, so I’m now (since 3 weeks) to 50 mg / h. So much for dependence! As soon as the effect wears off, I have an inner restlessness associated with feelings of anxiety (then I can not stand still, have this tingling sensation in my legs). Common side effects include constipation, depression, sweats, insomnia. Would like to sell the patch (gradually, despite the known side effects), but there are comparable alternatives?

    I received Fentanyl for severe pain after rib fracture. I hardly had any pain anymore, only when lying on my side. I felt the easing of the effect after 3 days clearly. The side effect is only partially bearable. First of all nausea, lack of appetite, heavy sweating, constipation, tiredness, disorientation and in general the feeling to have int. After weaning, withdrawal symptoms such as restlessness, sleep disturbances, depression, listlessness and severe aggression were added.

    Fentanyl for Pain (acute); Pain (chronic)

    The worst thing for me is that despite the many medications, I still have a lot of pain and the side effects are just as bad. In addition to constipation and very heavy sweating, I suffer especially from the strong depression and constant fatigue.

    Fentanyl for Pain (joint)

    As far as I can handle everything well. Sometimes I have constipation. But the bad thing is these terrible sweats. Often it is associated with simultaneous shivering. Strangely, I tolerated the medication for a long time. After years, these sweats came. For me, the hormones were examined, which are o.k .. So it will be due to the drugs.

    Side effects: Sweats; Constipation

    Fentanyl for Pain (chronic)

    After an operation on the sternum, I suffer from chronic pain. I started with the strongest Tilidin, Katadolon and Saroten. Unfortunately, this did not help against the pain at all. So I got Fentanylpflaster 50 micrograms, change every 2 days, otherwise on the 3rd day the strong pain is back completely. If necessary I take ibuprofen 600mg and tramadol and in the evening 1 saroten (amitriptyline). On most days, I tolerate the patches quite well. At first I had constipation, now only rarely. Among other things, I have sweats now and then, fatigue, but what is bearable, worse are the days when you have depressive mood swings and anxiety, but thank God not too often occur. I have not been able to drive until now, but I will start again soon. Of the other drugs I have no side effects. But I usually do not even notice the analgesic effect of ibuprofen. Side effects are summarized by fentanyl: sweating, constipation, fatigue, anxiety disorders and depressive mood swings
