Actiq

Drug Info for actiq

Fentanyl is used to treat breakthrough pain (sudden episodes of pain that occur despite round the clock treatment with pain medication) in cancer patients at least 18 years of age (or at least 16 years of age if using Actiq brand lozenges) who are taking regularly scheduled doses of another narcotic (opiate) pain medication, and who are tolerant (used to the effects of the medication) to narcotic pain medications. Fentanyl is in a class of medications called narcotic (opiate) analgesics. It works by changing the way the brain and nervous system respond to pain.

Fentanyl Citrate is an opioid medication used to help prevent pain after surgery or other medical procedure. It is used as part of anesthesia along with other medications and works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain.

An overdose can be dangerous. Follow directions carefully so you do not get too much medicine at one time.

Use this medicine only when needed for breakthrough pain. Never use more than your doctor told you to use.

Use only the brand of medicine your doctor prescribed. Other brands may not work the same way.

Keep the medicine in the original blister or foil package. Open the package right before you need to use it.

Fentora® tablets: Peel the blister back to remove the tablet. Do not push the tablet through the blister because this may damage the tablet. Place the tablet between your upper cheek and gum, above a back molar, until it dissolves. Do not chew, suck, or swallow the tablet. You may swallow the tablet with a glass of water if it does not dissolve completely after 30 minutes.

Leave the film in place until it dissolves, and do not touch or move the film. Do not chew or swallow the film.
