Question: What medication was I given?

While getting stitches in the ER, the doctor wanted to give me Ativan to help me calm down. I had taken Ativan twice before and vomited both times, so she gave me something else. It was an injection into my arm muscle and I think it started with an "f" or maybe "ph"- does anyone know what that could be?

I can't be sure but it may have been a medication called fentanyl. This is a fast acting narcotic that also typically gives a little sleepiness as well.
Other than this medicine I cannot think of what it may have been.
