Fentanyl Overdoses Can Be Fatal

by Staff Blogger | April 18th, 2017

Pain management is an important part of many medical treatment plans. Beyond providing relief from chronic pain, these plans can give patients and their families a new lease on life. In recent years, physicians have prescribed Fentanyl patches as part of those pain management plans because of their controlled release design that can provide hours of pain relief. However, some of these patches have been recalled due to a defect that can lead to fatal overdoses.

If you or someone you love is using a Fentanyl patch for pain relief, check to see if the brand you use is one of the following:

  • Actavis, Inc. (formally known as Abrika Pharmaceuticals, Inc.)
  • Duragesic®
  • Sandoz®

At Ferrer, Point & Wansbrough, we hope that you and your doctor are able to make any necessary changes to your pain management plan before an injury occurs.
