Fentanyl Injury Attorneys in Houston
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.
Fentanyl Has Been Linked to 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.

Fentanyl Patches Recalled
Fentanyl was recalled by the manufacturer after the patches were found
to leak and cause overdose. Later, the FDA issued a public statement to
advise health care professionals and caregivers on the potentially dangerous
side effects caused by Fentanyl. If you believe that a serious injury
or death was caused by the use of Fentanyl or you are interested in learning
