How long do i have to wait to use a Fentanyl 100 mcg patch after taking a oxy 80 mg?
Everyone's different, but in general it takes several hours (especially if you're already opiate tolerant by using OxyContin) for Fentanyl to achieve a dosage equivalent to what you're taking. You want to adjust your patch attachment time so that when your OxyContin dose is going down, the patch dose is ramping up.
Your doctor should have already told you this; keep in mind that initial patch doses are skewed toward the low end of the dosage chart for safety, so your initial dose might not cut it. Make sure you've got enough breakthrough meds available until you can get your patch dose correct.
Nortryptiline is actually occasionally prescribed along with Fentanly patches as an augment drug (doesn't work for most people). As far as blood pressure med, you can take them, but it's best to wait until you're patch dose is adjusted to see what your BP is going to be.

No, Suboxone binds to the same spot that fentanyl does. Suboxone is much"heavier" and fentanyl is too light. Fentanyl may attempt to bump the suboxone off it's receptor, but will fail miserably. You need you wait 24-36 hours after taking Subs before fentanyl or any other opiate will be free to attach to it's receptor.

If you use the nuva ring how long after taking a 10 day dose of ammoxicilin do you wait to have unprotected sex?

Depending on how much subuxone you take and for how long. For example: if you are taking only 2mg of subs, then you have to wait 48 hours. If you are taking 8mg or more daily, then you have to wait at least 72 to 96 hours. But I would recommend waiting more just to be safe. I would wait it out for 120 to 144 hours, which is 5 to 6 days.
