Final Thoughts

If you have questions about the safety of fentanyl patches, or how to use them correctly, do not hesitate to ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist.

However, when used correctly, this medication can provide pain relief for people suffering from persistent, chronic pain that requires around-the-clock treatment.
