Fentora Withdrawal and Detox

Fentora Addiction Hotline

24/7, Toll-Free, Confidential

Fentora is a powerful narcotic prescribed for treating breakthrough pain as it arises in cancer patients. It is classified as an opioid analgesic and it binds to pain receptors to block pain and increase the patient’s pain threshold.

Fentora has a high potential for misuse, so it’s not easily obtained; cancer patients may only take Fentora if they are tolerant of opioids and they are already taking other pain medications for around-the-clock pain. Patients interested in taking Fentora must first be accepted into a program created by the Food and Drug Administration because it’s much stronger than other opioids, like morphine.

Like most narcotics, Fentora has a high risk for withdrawal symptoms when someone quits taking it.

Fentora Withdrawal and Detox
Fentora misuse often leads to a physical dependence, meaning a person will believe they cannot function in everyday life without the medication. Eventually, that person will build up a tolerance to Fentora, leading them to take a higher dose each time against their doctor’s orders. Withdrawal symptoms are likely to occur at this stage if a person stops taking Fentora.

Withdrawal symptoms are caused by the sudden alteration in chemical balance once Fentora is no longer in the body. Fentora can cause unpleasant and sometimes painful physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms, including:

  • Fever
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Disorientation
  • Mood changes (irritability, aggressiveness)
  • Muscle aches
  • Stomach cramps
  • Diarrhea
  • Tremors
  • Vomiting

Someone struggling with a substance use disorder will have uncontrollable cravings and be tempted with recurring use; however, a substance-free life is possible and obtainable at The Recovery Village.

The withdrawal timeline is hard to pinpoint; factors including the individual’s genetics, tolerance, and the severity of the addiction can determine when symptoms of withdrawal may begin.

In most cases, symptoms can occur just hours after the last dose and can last for days at a time. The first withdrawal symptoms to appear normally are diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and muscle aches.

If ignored, Fentora withdrawal symptoms have the potential to cause unbearable discomfort and pain, increasing the chances of recurring use. Long-term recovery is possible if someone struggling with addiction finds an effective treatment program to help manage withdrawal symptoms.

Fentora Withdrawal and Detox
The safest way to manage Fentora withdrawal symptoms is to receive help from professional detox and rehabilitation centers.

Recovering from an opioid addiction is much more challenging than other medications as the withdrawal symptoms and effects alone are far more powerful. Doctors may taper a patients Fentora dosage to help relieve the intensity of withdrawal. Tapering is when someone’s dosage is gradually decreased to help the body adjust to lower Fentora levels instead of stopping abruptly. This is an effective method for people who are physically reliant on Fentora, but not psychologically addicted.

Rehabilitation centers can offer patients medicine to treat or prevent withdrawal symptoms.

As mentioned, medications are available for people struggling with Fentora addiction. Some the withdrawal symptoms are similar to the flu, so people can take medicine to help with their muscle aches, vomiting, and diarrhea.

A common symptom of Fentora withdrawal is insomnia and sleeping problems. To make detox and recovery far less stressful, sedatives can be given to a patient to help them sleep.

When detoxification from Fentora is attempted alone, the results can lead back to substance misuse and could be dangerous to the person’s mental and physical health. Withdrawal symptoms can become so intolerable that they create new or worsening issues, like anxiety. That is why medical supervision at a detox center is critical to long-term recovery and health.

Opioid recovery is stressful for everyone involved and this further complicates finding the right detox center. It is important to note, a detox program that worked for one person might not be as effective for another person. Patients’ needs vary depending on their unique situations.
