Fentanyl Buccal Tablet Information

If you have cancer and experience breakthrough pain despite the use of around-the-clock pain medication, your healthcare provider may prescribe fentanyl buccal tablets (Fentora®). This medicine is a strong opioid narcotic, which comes in the form of a tablet that is dissolved in the mouth. It is typically taken every four hours as needed for pain.
 
Although most people tolerate this medication well, it is not suitable for some people. Before using fentanyl buccal tablets, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information on any other drugs you are taking and any other medical problems you may have. For example, fentanyl buccal tablets have a significant potential for physical dependence and abuse, so they may not be a good choice for people who have a history of alcohol or drug abuse.
