FENTANYL PATCH

As I physician, when I was actively practicing, this was a medication that was very limited and totally controlled.

It was used as a last resort, for patients in extreme pain, usually terminal cancer patients.

It was never  the first drug of choice for pain.

I’m sure that, during the days to come, much more info will be learned about this medications, it’s uses and effects.

Fentanyl patch is a narcotic pain medicine that may become habit-forming. Misuse or abuse by placing it in the mouth or chewing, swallowing, injecting, or snorting it can lead to overdose and death. Do not use more than the recommended dose, use for longer than prescribed, or use more often than prescribed without checking with your doctor.

Fentanyl patch may cause severe and sometimes fatal breathing problems.

The risk of fentanyl patch’s side effects, including breathing problems, may be increased if you also take or have recently stopped certain other medicines or if you eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice.
