Drug Interactions With Fentanyl Buccal Tablets

Octreotide
Combining octreotide with fentanyl buccal tablets may increase the pain-relieving effects of the tablets. Your healthcare provider may monitor your pain response if you take these medications together. You might need a lower dose of the tablets.
 
Pegvisomant
Fentanyl buccal tablets may decrease the effectiveness of pegvisomant. If you take these medications together, your healthcare provider may need to increase your pegvisomant dose.
 
Thiazide Diuretics
Using fentanyl buccal tablets with a thiazide diuretic may increase your risk for orthostatic hypotension, or a decrease in blood pressure when you stand up. Talk to your healthcare provider if you notice symptoms of orthostatic hypotension, such as faintness, dizziness, or lightheadedness, while taking these medications together.
