Hi folks, odds are its late and can't sleep right. Well i'm not doing so great as of the 23rd last month.Pharmacy sends "matrix" patch instead of duragesic 100mg gel patch and say that's it they dont make the ones you need anymore,OK but two weeks of freezing sweatting, no long sleep bad spasms to the point of cramping, very upset to have my life turned aroung that sudden, the pain is now worse, i regresssed three years for sure,I don't uinderstand why. I was on duragesic fentiny 100mg every 48 hrs the matrix works about a third of that and cramping spasms are increadible.I don't smoke, do drugs,drink, i play guitar that's my curse.I havemt recorded in two weeks in my studio, can't. Three years ago I had 15-25 cortizons and ladocaine injections every two weeks and though the doctors gave up poking a tree trunk, too much scar tissue.I don't know where to turn. Has anyone experienced these problems as wel switching to the matrix ? if so please share it with me.In 1996 i was carrying a three hundred pound stainless CHedule 40 x 20 ft=318lbs pipe, my rookie gunho partner missed his footing and a very odd ring after i'm on my knees with thre guys trying to remove it off my shounlder, The worse part of it is nothing has helped for that feeling that every hair in my lower neck is being pulled individually all at the same time to the point of the root coming out, that's the best description, my head get all numb like dentist stuff be hing the ears and rear skull when the spapsms are bad. my english is not so good i'm french, don't hate me for that, we can be funny and sing good.Any response would be extremely helpfull, please
hi lunatic,what the heck are you talkin about ? In AMERICA matrix is the name of a movie. PLEASE don't tell me you want an AMERICAN to come to your rescue again ? Just kiddin , you see americans can be funny too. As far as i know you can still get durag in the states.most people here when they know they are going to be on an opiate for life would ask for methadone or suboxone. are "butrans"perscribed in france ? have you ever tried bupernorphine ? here in the states it is getting increasingly harder to obtain narcotics from a doctor.you get put on a contract just to receive pain management.there have been drugs pulled from the market. ill look into what you asked for and get back to you in a few hours. again,sorry about the jokes... pete or you can call me "pierre"... lol
Iam sending you a gogle search to help you find a more helpful patch I ran a search under; was using duragesic 100 mg gel patch need a good substitute for matrix" patch
Hope this helps and you have less pain
God bless Bucky 1
Thanks for the info, but some of the med you describe frighten me more than the present ones, its a very fine line to walk. I've read nightmare stories od poeple sellin them and stuff, to be honest i cant see hao anyone would actually get pleasure out of abusing this type of med, i dont scew with my dosage or any aspect, my quality of life is my main concern, doctors handle med, i just take em.
This med is deadly on some that ive read and its positively stunning why someone would throw the dice and use this stuff, the part that really hits home is my ex's father died of cancer, and his meds are just about everything im taking and similar doses, i don't feel like i'm dying, do they know something i dont? To get back to subject on fentanyl, the new matrix patch is a total hoax, i dont know what their rats suffer from, but this change in delivery format was the toughest two week i've had, felt things that normally don't cross my mind, ( not suicide, too many things to finish, but i see why those who abuse this wrongly pay the price with their lives,mine stay im my safe, i've read that this stuff is worse than heoin, ive never been exposed to that where i live, probably wouldn't know the difference between crack or meth but i watch intervention alot and if i ever get even remotly close to that behaviour i hope my love ones step in because obviously the user has no idea of their outlook. I'm french but please dont hold that against me but it does explain the spelling... lol, thank you for you responses, but i'm more cofused now about options, and none of them are very appealing.I do want to remember being alive at some point in this miserable existances. I dont think i'm in a position to make suggestions to my doctors, i have to put my trust in them, there maybe options for my pain and the limitations i have to deal with, i have a one year old grandson and i will not baby sit him till he's older, i love him too much to ever not be sufficient for him, i know i'll get my turn at him but for now the best way be the best grandfather i can be is not to satisfy my urges to be with him more than looking out for his safety. Its a major sacrifice because he so much of a great kid and i want to be there for him, but i do take some comfort that when he's older he'll remember me easier i guess. I just want to be around to see it. Your responces are comforting just to know there's someone out there who understands.
