Fentanyl Detox

What Is Fentanyl?

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid first developed in 1959, similar to, but far more potent than morphine. Many doctors have been persuaded that it is better to prescribe fentanyl than other opioids like:

  • OxyContin
  • Vicodin
  • Percocet
  • Methadone
  • Oxycodone
  • Hydrocodone

Learn More About What Happens When Detoxing From Fentanyl

Anyone who has become dependent on the fentanyl patch, or fentanyl in any form, whether using it legitimately for pain or for other reasons, needs to know these important facts about fentanyl detox:

  1. A safe fentanyl detox requires specialized medical detox knowledge and skills.
  2. Fentanyl detox can sometimes require special, advanced medical detox protocols, to avoid the weeks or months of painful, step-down withdrawal similar to the advanced protocols used for high dose methadone detox.
  3. These special, advanced fentanyl detox protocols are not widely available. But they are the standard of care at Novus Medical Detox Center.

From A Patient:
“Before you go into any program, either for dependence or addiction treatment, look very carefully at them and then at Novus, ask pointed questions of both. I believe you’ll choose Novus and never regret it! I know I don’t.”

Major Side Effects Of Fentanyl

More than 10% of the patients taking fentanyl report one or more of these side effects:

  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Constipation
  • Dry mouth
  • Confusion
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Abdominal pain
  • Headache
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Hallucinations
  • Shortness of breath

Healthcare professionals who prescribe and patients who use the fentanyl patch should be aware of the signs of fentanyl overdose including the following:

  • Trouble breathing or slow or shallow breathing
  • Slow heartbeat; severe sleepiness
  • Cold, clammy skin
  • Trouble walking or talking
  • Feeling faint, dizzy, or confused.

If these signs occur, patients or their caregivers should get medical attention right away.

Patients prescribed the fentanyl patch should tell their doctor about all the medicines that they take. Some medicines may interact with fentanyl causing dangerously high fentanyl blood levels and serious, life-threatening breathing problems.

Fentanyl Withdrawal

Because the patches contain very dangerous narcotics, it requires skill and knowledge to safely withdraw people from the fentanyl patch. Depending on the amount of the drugs in the patch, the withdrawal can be similar to withdrawal from other opioids, like OxyContin as described in our article “Opiate and Opioid Withdrawal”, but can also require a protocol similar to the ones used in high dose methadone withdrawal.
