Were you looking for information about Fentanyl? Phentanyl is a common misspelling of fentanyl.
Fentanyl (Abstral®, Actiq®, Duragesic®, Fentora®, Lazanda®, Onsolis®, Subsys®) is an active ingredient used in several prescription pain medications. This ingredient is a type of opioid narcotic and has a significant potential for abuse and physical dependence. It works by binding to opioid receptors throughout the body, which causes several effects, such as cough suppression, pain relief, and drowsiness.
This medication comes in the form of a skin patch, a sublingual spray (a liquid that is sprayed beneath the tongue), a nasal spray, various products that dissolve in the mouth, and injections. A few of the common side effects include dizziness, drowsiness, and nausea.
