Rapid Drug Detox can help detox you from Actiq.
Actiq is a solid formulation of fentanyl citrate on a plastic stick that dissolves slowly in the mouth for absorption across the oral mucous membrane. Fentanyl is a Schedule II controlled substance. Other pharmaceutical preparations consisting of fentanyl are Duragesic (72 hour continuous-release fentanyl patches) and Fentora, a rapidly dissolving fentanyl lozenge. Actiq is much stronger than morphine. Actiq is intended for opiate-tolerant individuals and is effective in treating cancer pain. However, it is often prescribed for “off-label uses” and is used for patients with chronic pain.
The Actiq dosage unit is a white, berry-flavored lozenge on a stick which is swabbed on the buccal mucosa between cheek and gum to release the fentanyl quickly into the bloodstream. It is most effective when the lozenge is consumed in exactly 15 minutes, as the balance of the drug absorbed through the cheeks and the amount swallowed is maintained.

Actiq Addiction Effects
Actiq, like all opioids, has a potential for abuse. Side effects include severe dependency, tolerance and addiction, plus constipation, dry mouth, rash, sweating, hot flashes, dizziness, depression, and weight gain, etc.
Actiq Withdrawal Symptoms
Actiq withdrawal can be a painful process particularly after heavy use. Symptoms are typically experienced within hours of stopping the use and can last up to several weeks, depending on the intensity of Actiq use. Symptoms of Actiq withdrawal include: sweating, malaise, anxiety, depression, cramp-like pains in the muscles, severe muscle and bone aching, leg kicking, yawning, sneezing, tears, severe and long lasting sleep difficulties (insomnia), nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, goose bump skin, cramps, and fever. Some patients complain of a painful condition called “itchy blood” which results in compulsive scratching causing bruising and open sores on the skin. All of these symptoms can be quite pronounced causing the patient to experience such intense pain and suffering that a “cold turkey” withdrawal is unbearable triggering the patient to continue their drug use.
Rapid Anesthesia Actiq Detox
The RDD Method™ for Actiq detoxification under anesthesia is a medical procedure that eliminates most of the withdrawal symptoms. During the procedure the patient is given medication to relax and then put under light, general anesthesia for approximately 60 minutes. Following the procedure, recovery begins under direct medical supervision.
The patient’s vital signs and overall physical and mental reactions to these medications are closely monitored during the detox procedure. In the days that follow, the patient often sleeps more than usual. Administered by professionals as part of a long-term drug-addiction recovery strategy, The RDD Method™ is significantly more effective than other courses of Actiq addiction treatment.

If you are using opiate drugs to control pain and feel you are using more and more to get the same pain relief, you may be suffering from a common condition caused from opiate drug use; read about this condition called Hyperalgesia. Also, read about hormones and how the chronic use of opiate drugs can decrease the body’s ability to produce the proper amount of testosterone and estrogen.
We never use other replacement addicting opiates, often prescribed by physicians and detox centers, such as Suboxone®/Subutex (Buprenorphine) or injectable Buprenorphine. These schedule III controlled opiate drugs are routinely and widely used and approved by the FDA for opiate addiction maintenance, like Methadone. Many patients find themselves in the same situation as they were before drug treatment from a doctor or a drug rehabilitation center. Some in-patient rehab centers also use schedule II controlled liquid Hydrocodone and Dilaudid “cocktails”. Patients soon realize these replacement drugs cause severe withdrawal once they are discharged from these programs. This causes the patient to seek opiates for relief from the severe discomfort of a Buprenorphine withdrawal. The use of these drugs for treatment of opiate addiction is merely switching one opiate drug for another setting the patient up for failure. This does not solve the patient’s drug addiction problem. As use of these drugs become more common, we are seeing a steady increase of requests for an anesthesia detox from patients addicted to Suboxone®/Subutex (Buprenorphine). With RDD’s Naltrexone Therapy used as a pellet/implant, injectable “IM” shot or the oral pill form, the patient stays clean and cravings are greatly reduced.
