Fentanyl 25 mcg
Fentanyl 25 mcg is a pain reliever. It is used to treat persistent, moderate to severe chronic pain.
Fentanyl is the generic form of the brand-name drug Duragesic, a prescription opioid (narcotic) drug used to treat chronic, “around-the-clock” pain.
It should be used only by people who are “opioid-tolerant,” or who are already taking opioid pain medications, such as morphine and oxycodone, regularly.
Fentanyl is in a class of drugs called opioid analgesics, which work by binding to nervous system proteins called opioid receptors, thereby blocking the transmission of pain signals to the brain.
Fentanyl 25 Duragesic is a transdermal (through the skin) patch.
Fentanyl is also sold as a lozenge under the brand name Actiq, a tablet that goes under the tongue (Abstral), a film that’s applied to the inner lining of the cheek or lip (Onsolis), a tablet that goes between the gum and cheek (Fentora) a nasal spray (Lazanda), a sublingual tablet (Abstral), and a sublingual spray (Subsys).
