Administered as a transdermal patch, Fentanyl (under brand names such as Actiq, Durogesic, Duragesic, and Abstral) acts quickly to reduce pain and is approximately 100 times more potent than morphine. While Fentanyl has provided pain relief to many, it also has been linked to harmful side effects. Numerous cases of Fentanyl overdose have been reported, which could lead to respiratory failure, permanent coma and death. Manufacturing problems related to the Duragesic Patch has led to five recalls since 1994.

Fentanyl side effects - when to consider filing a Fentanyl lawsuit
Exposure of the skin to any leaked medication can cause nausea, over sedation, drowsiness or other potentially fatal problems. Fentanyl, an opioid, has been linked with the following conditions:
- Respiratory failure
- Overdose due to a defective product
- Post-acute-withdrawal syndrome (including depression, anxiety, psychosis)
One patch, even at its lowest strength, is enough to cause dangerous side effects for patients who lack a tolerance for opioid-based medication. Fentanyl's manufacturer was ordered to pay more than $35 million to families of individuals who died who were part of the first four lawsuits. A $13.3 million award was recently upheld on appeal.
