Were you looking for information about Fentanyl? Fentinyl is a common misspelling of fentanyl.
Fentanyl (Abstral®, Actiq®, Duragesic®, Fentora®, Lazanda®, Onsolis®, Subsys®) is an ingredient found in many prescription pain medications. As a type of opioid narcotic, the drug works by binding to opioid receptors throughout the body. This causes several effects, such as relieving pain, causing drowsiness, and suppressing a cough.
This pain medication comes in several forms, such as a skin patch, liquids that are sprayed underneath the tongue or into the nostril, various products that dissolve in the mouth, and injections. Some of the common side effects include drowsiness, nausea, and dizziness.
Although fentanyl is tolerated well by most people, it is not suitable for everyone. Before using it, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about any other health conditions you have, as well as any other medications you are taking.
