How long are fentanyl metabolites detectable on a urine sample tested specifically for fentanyl?

The time starts hours after the patch is removed. Due to some staying in the skin, it brings the total time to about a week after the patch is rmoved. ...Read more

Will fentanyl show up on a urine drug screen saying it is only testing for opiates and benzos? Not specifically fentanyl though

Will fentanyl show up on a normal 12 panel urine test? Friend has an Rx for percocet. Will fentanyl influence the results of his oxycodone levels too?

Most likely: Fentanyl will most likely show up as a positive test for opioids on a 12 panel urine drug screen. The panel does not have a specific test for fentanyl in the panel, but fentanyl is an opioid. There is a specific for oxycodone on the test that should be positive in someone taking Percocet. It is strongly recommended that a person be completely honest about what drugs have been used prior to test ...Read more

Heard my daughters puttin her fentanyl patches under her tonge an not puttin em on, even if I had dr do urine/spit test sent to lab it won't tell differ?

Difficult to say: Urine test will show the drug is in her system. Saliva test will show it too for up to 2 - 5 days after the last dose.
The test will simply stay it is in her system, not the mode of entry.
Scraping the oral mucosa after chewing could detect it.
You need to do something quickly to stop this behavior. Overdose is almost inevitable when Fentanyl is chewed and will occur at some point. ...Read more

What happens when fentanyl 50mg kicks in?

Pain relief: Fentanyl works on pain receptors. Its primary use is to alleviate pain. How fast it works depends on how it is given (IV, IM, transdermal). I'll assume you are referring to IV. Works in 1-5 mins, lasts ~ 45-90 mins. Some very serious, but expected side effects include slowed or even stopped breathing, low blood pressure, sedation. Expect excellent pain relief with Fentanyl when used properly ...Read more

Is fentanyl the same as heroin?

No: Heroin is a semi-synthetic derivative of morphine found in the opium plant, also called diamorph or 1, 6=diacetylmorphine. Fentanyl is completely synthetic, but is extremely potent, hundreds of times more potent than heroin, so that very tiny amounts are effective, and potentially dangerous. Recently more than 20 deaths in rhode island and 20 more in pa. Have been seen with street fentanyl. ...Read more
