Duragesic Patch Attorneys
Duragesic, also known as Fentanyl or Transdermal, is a pain patch that is worn on the skin as a topical treatment. It is a narcotic analgesic. The purpose and effect of the patch is to allow the narcotic to be slowly absorbed through the skin at a constant rate for up to three days. The patches are manufactured and sold at different strengths and more than one patch may be prescribed to be worn at any one time.
The manufacturer of the patch, Janssen Pharmaceutica, has issued two separate recalls for defective Duragesic pain patches. The recalls were based on the fact that the patches leak the narcotic medication because of improper sealing of one of the edges which unfortunately can result in an overdose. As stated, the active ingredient in these patches is Fentanyl, a strong narcotic used for severe pain management. Fentanyl is a very strong narcotic pain killer.
