The Fentanyl Patch or the Duragesic Patch is a prescription patch for long term relief of moderate to severe pain. It was approved by the FDA in 2000 and manufactured by Alza Corp, a division of Johnson and Johnson. The Fentanyl Transdermal System is often prescribed to patients suffering from migraines, post-surgery pain and severe pain. The Fentanyl patch is a very strong drug that slowly releases the opioid pain reliever Fentanyl into the system.
In 2005 the FDA began a series of recall and warnings regarding the Fentanyl patch after several patients died while on the patch. Since then there have been several different recalls and lawsuits surrounding the Fentanyl patch.
Johnson and Johnson had the legal responsibility to warn patients of these devastating side effects of Fentanyl. If you have had taken Fentanyl and are experiencing any of the Fentanyl side effects, then it is important that you seek legal representation to obtain the financial compensation you deserve.

Fentanyl Recall Notice
There have been several different recalls of various Fentanyl batches sold throughout the years due to the defective manufacturing of the product. In some instances, the patch may leak which can result in a toxic overdose. In other instances, improper use can result in addiction, overdose and potential death. Because Fentanyl is such as strong pain medication, 81 times stronger than morphine, many patients are unaware of the serious side effects and health conditions associated with incorrect use.
