... Pros and Cons? I can't seem to tolerate pill form of narcotics, frequent nausea and vomiting are my side effects with most pill forms of narcotics despite taking them with food and/or lying down for an hour after taking them. Are there any nasal spray narcotics out there? I have severe fibromyalgia, migraine and osteoarthritis pain.
If I am not mistaken, Stadol (staydol?) is available in a nasal spray from or used to be. I am pretty sure that no dr in his/her right mind will not give you injectable pain meds, the risks are too great. It also won't completely eradicate the nausea and vomiting, it might make it happen quicker. I am not fussing at you or judging you, please don't think that. I have fibro myself and it can be awful, not to mention the osteoarthritis. You might ask your dr for mepergan, it has phenegran in it, for the nausea and vomiting. Dr may question why you are asking for a specific med,(they are getting in trouble for writing too many opiate based pain meds) but you do need to state how much trouble you are having with nausea and vomiting. You could also ask your pharmacist, as they are the true medication experts. You might also try some deep relaxation therapies (meditation, hypnosis, yoga) as an add on to your pain meds. When I am in the worst throes of fibro, I am super tense, I i can purposely relax, it helps the pain best of luck, patti
Fentanyl comes in a nasel spray form. The pro's of iving narcotics is that it sets in almost instantly but does not last for to long compared to as taking the pill orally I have found from personal experiences. The cons is that almost anything you inject in your body has a PH level it could cause a problem. Or if you miss the vein or accidentaly pull back to much trash can be another problem. 2 if you are shooting the drugs up by breaking them down in water and heating them p or cold washing them you have a chance also of either pulling a small piece of the cotton that is used back into the syringe or get to large of a dose. If you pull back a piece of whatever you use to filter the drug back into the syringe and inject it you will have real problem's. I couldn't urge you more to take a lower dose and work your way up to were you can handle the medication. Some tricks are to try and stay laying down in a cool room. Stay comfortable, try not to smoke until the pill wears down because of the gaggy feeling you will get, do not drink anything caffeinated because for me it made me want to throw up do to trapted air. Water lots of water. Intramuscular are slower acting but they work in and last a bit longer I found. The crappy part is that you have a chance of hitting your siatic nerve if given in your bottom and not given by a professional. There is anti nausea that you can get that will help you with the nausea part of it most common ones are Phenergan and Zofran. They work great for use with opiates.
