My situation is very complicated so please be patient with me as I explain.
With fentanly Ive heard that you need to have used other opiates in the past before you can use fentanyl but I personally dont have any tolerance to other opiods whatsoever, Im as opiod- naive as they get.
I also have a rare neurological condition that developed after overdosing on recreational drugs 8 years ago which damaged my autonomic nervous system and left me with a severe chemical sensitivity and a condition called Dysautonomia. Im no longer able to use any type of reacreational drugs anymore as even the smallest dose can be fatal for me. Ive had severe adverse reactions to other opiates including Tramadol, Oxycodone, Darvocet and Morphine which were given to me for detereorating muscle and joint pain.
After a surgery in hospital I discovered that I was able to tolerate fentanyl without any problems while I was sedated, and a follow up ive fentanyl test by the pain managment clinic I confirmed that i was able to take it, but this is where it gets even more complicated.....following the IV fentanyl test which went great but 8 hours later when I was resting I experinced a delay onset of respiratory depression, after going to the ER the Dr told me that the fentanyl given to me had been absorbed into my muscles and during the 8 hour period my body may have developed antibodies towards it and later the re-release of the stored fentanyl in my muscles were rejected causing the respiratory depression. I know it sounds a bit whacked
So its now been 1 months since the incidence and Ive had a pack of fentanyl patches sitting there the whole time and ive been somwhat scared and reluctant to start on them. For someone like me is a 12 micrograms/hour 2.1 mg per patch realtively safe, and if infact my body has now developed some sort of rejection to fentanyl how can i be sure without puting myself in too much risk?
