Stay Vigilant When Dispensing Fentanyl Rxs
You'll see more focus on safe use of transdermal fentanyl patches and transmucosal fentanyl products (films, lozenges, etc).
These fentanyl products are only for patients already taking certain opioid doses...who are opioid-tolerant.
But there are reports of opioid-naive patients getting fentanyl patches. This can cause serious breathing problems, even death.
