Were you looking for information about the Fentanyl Patch? Fentenyl patch is a common misspelling of fentanyl patch.
By blocking the effects of certain opioid receptors in the body, the fentanyl patch (Duragesic®) can treat moderate-to-severe chronic pain. This prescription medication should only be used by people who are accustomed to the effects of opioid medications and who require continuous pain relief.
In most cases, people tolerate this medicated skin patch well. However, this medication is not suitable for everyone. Make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medical conditions you have, as well as any other medications you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements) before starting treatment with this drug.
