What is the difference between Fentanyl and oxycodone?

Fentanyl is normally primarily used as a general anesthetic, where Oxycodone is an acute pain medication. However, when prescribed as a chronic pain med, Fentanyl Transdermal Patches are typically the opiate therapy of last resort for severe chronic pain patients, who have used all other lesser forms of opiates without long term success, their opiate tolerance has exceeded acute pain med limits, or their pain requires 24/7 relief. Most acute meds like Oxycodone only last 4-6 hours; the longest lasting timed-release version of Oxycodone (OxyContin) at best last 12 hours. Fentanyl patches last anywhere from 48-72 hours depending on the patient and their opiate tolerance level.The biggest difference of course is strength; Fentanyl is the strongest opiate on the planet, and is 100x stronger than morphine.

What is an equivalent alternative to Fentanyl?

When used IV, they often start with 50 MICROGRAMS of Fentanyl for pain. If needed, they go up to 100 MICROGRAMS. In contrast if they are using morphine they give 1 MILLIGRAM then go up to 2 MILLIGRAMS. 1 MG = 1000 MICROGRAMS. So doing the math, the fentanyl is 20 times more potent (50 x 20 = 1000) The main difference is fentanyl wears off in an hour whereas the morphine will last 2-4 hours. Fentanyl is used in anesthesia, for pain pumps and epidurals where you need fine control. If you overdose with Fentanyl a single dose of NARCAN to reverse usually is all you need as the Narcan lasts longer than the fentanyl. If you over dose with Morphine you might needed repeated shots of the Narcan because the Morphine lasts longer than Narcan. The biggest danger of fentanyl is powdered fentanyl can be quickly absorbed thru the lungs or skin.

Does suboxone block the effects of morphine?

suboxone will block the effect of morph and most likely send you into immediate withdrawal symptoms (not fun). It is best to wait 12-18 hours after last sub dose(8 mg) to do morph, or till you start to feel withdrawal symptoms. The only narcotic that will be able to overpower the suboxone is fentanyl, which will knock the very powerful strength of subs. A word of advise.............Don't send yourself into withdrawals with morphine unless you have fentanyl. Please dont waste your money.
