Fentanyl Injury Attorneys

Duragesic, also known as Fentanyl or Transdermal is a patch used to dispense painkillers. It is worn on the skin and is absorbed over a period of up to three days. The drug is often used in palliative care to assist patients who cannot swallow or who suffer from renal failure.

Dangerous side effects

Fentanyl is sometimes used as a last resort for bedridden and cancer patients suffering from extreme pain. Unfortunately, many of these patients are often victims of the dangerous side effects of Fentanyl that can cause serious injury, even death. Drug injuries can be serious, even fatal. You do have rights against the negligent manufacturers and distributors of dangerous drugs.
