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 more about Duragesic side effects, please contact our offices.

Duragesic side effects may include:

  • Respiratory depression
  • Abdominal pain
  • Chest pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Loss of appetite
  • Amnesia
  • Paranoia
