An addiction to opiates including Fentora can be debilitating, devastating lives, careers and health. Used to treat breakthrough cancer pain, Fentora is a strong narcotic pain reliever that can be habit-forming. Because of this, it should be taken exactly as prescribed by a doctor. Taking it in larger amounts than what’s prescribed can be dangerous.
Directions on the prescription label should be followed closely and it should not be taken longer than what’s recommended. Fentora is also considered a drug of abuse so users should keep track of their prescription and safeguard it at all times. Misuse could lead to an overdose which can be marked by extreme drowsiness, confusion, cold and clammy skin, small pupils, weak pulse, fainting and shallow breathing.

Addiction to opiate painkillers is unfortunately commonplace, though they can be taken safely. Fentora is a powerful weapon in the pain-fighting arsenal. Knowing the exact amount to be taken and how often is imperative. Many people become physically dependent upon opiate medications through no fault of their own. In many cases, patients build up a tolerance to the drug, meaning they have to take increasingly larger amounts to achieve the same relief. Patients should talk to their doctors immediately if they feel their prescription is not working as well as it once did. Fentora can cause a powerful high and feelings of euphoria. Some people may also use it to blunt emotional pain.
Compulsive or uncontrollable use of Fentora is one sign of addiction. Physical dependence is marked by the onset of withdrawal. This takes place when a patient attempts to suddenly stop use after a prolonged period. Patients should always be weaned gradually from opiate medication under supervision from a doctor. Withdrawal symptoms include weakness, yawning, runny nose, sweating, headaches, muscle pain and twitches, irregular heartbeat, nausea, vomiting, fever and insomnia. Other signs include preoccupation with obtaining and consuming the drug, escalating and chronic use, impaired control over drug use and strong cravings that don’t subside unless you take the drug. Continuing to use Fentora despite negative consequences can also be a strong indicator of a problem.
Prolonged use of Fentora comes with the risk of addiction. Mental and physical dependency can develop quickly with repeated use. The Waismann Method offers a safe, responsible and humane treatment for opiate addiction. Our Fentora addiction detox program is performed in a hospital under the care of one of our medical directors. The process used is sedation-assisted rapid detox which takes less than two hours. Patients wake up without conscious awareness they went through an accelerated withdrawal. This puts them steps ahead in the recovery process which minimizes the chance of relapse. Our confidential and supportive program also includes the option of transitional living. Those patients who wish to continue recovery can choose to stay at our Domus Retreat facility.
The total inpatient requirement is 5, 7 or 10 days, based on each patient medical and dependence needs.
