15 units of 50MCG/HR FENTANYL (DURAGESIC)
The fentanyl patch is prescribed to give a slow release of a powerful opioid painkiller for people who are in pain. But it has the potential to be abused, turning it into a way of delivering a quick and dangerous high. Fentanyl is an opioid that is 100 times more potent than morphine.
More potent than morphine, fentanyl (brand names include Actiq, Duragesic, and Sublimaze) is used most often to treat patients with severe or post-surgical pain. It is also used for those who have become physically tolerant of opiates. It’s available as a lozenge, injectable solution, or skin patch.
