Fentenyl

Were you looking for information about Fentanyl? Fentenyl is a common misspelling of fentanyl.
 
If you are experiencing either chronic (long-term) pain or breakthrough pain (sudden bursts of pain that occur even though you are taking an around-the-clock pain medicine), a healthcare provider may prescribe pain medications that contain fentanyl (Abstral®, Actiq®, Duragesic®, Fentora®, Lazanda®, Onsolis®, Subsys®). This active ingredient is found in many prescription pain relievers.
 
This drug is a type of opioid narcotic and has a high potential for abuse and dependence. Before your healthcare provider prescribes a fentanyl product, he or she will consider several factors, including the type and severity of your pain, other medical conditions you have, and other medications you may be taking, including nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
