Awhile back, I passed a MS Contin, since have changed to Oxycontin, I have recently passed 2 at a time, still see the imprints, not the shells, the whole pill. Went to see stomach doctor, and seems to have them puzzled, because my meds cause constipation, but when I take medicine for the constipation I pass the pills.
My question is that all the Drs., I have called, and pharmacies and ask a nurse, does anyone have any real suggestions, on how to keep my meds from passing too soon. Immediate release, no problem, just time released, is there a certain time, or food, or any advice, would be greatly appreciated. Because, when I keep them in, its the first time in years, I can actually function!!!! Thanks
Interesting.... never heard of that one before. Maybe your Doctor can put you on a Fentanyl Patch. It is an ER medication, since you change the patch every 48 to 72 hours, and that way the problem will be solve. Don't know what else to say. Good luck!
Thank you for the response, I was tried the fentanyl before, and had problems with them sticking, even with the cover patches, but at this point, I may have to try it again!
That is so strange maybe ask a gastroenologist (stomach dr.). my cousin had this problem with vitamins and dr. told her to get vitamins made with gel coating, they melt faster, and it worked.
