What is Fentora?
Fentora (fentanyl) is an opioid pain medication. An opioid is sometimes called a narcotic.
Fentora buccal tablets are used to treat “breakthrough” cancer pain that is not controlled by other medicines. Buy Fentora Buccal Tablets Online
The tablets are used in the mouth but not swallowed whole. The tablet is placed inside the mouth between the cheek and gum (buccal) OR on the floor of your mouth, under your tongue (sublingual). Buccal Tablets For Sale
Fentora is not for treating pain that is not cancer-related.
Before taking this medicine
Do not use Fentora unless you are already using an around-the-clock opioid medicine and are tolerant to it. You should not use Fentora if you are allergic to fentanyl, or if you have:
severe asthma or other breathing problems; or
a stomach or bowel obstruction (including paralytic ileus).
To make sure Fentora is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have ever had:
breathing problems, sleep apnea;
any type of breathing problem or lung disease;
a head injury, brain tumor, or seizures;
low blood pressure, slow heartbeats or other heart rhythm disorder;
drug or alcohol addiction, depression, schizophrenia, or hallucinations;
liver or kidney disease;
urination problems; or
problems with your thyroid, gallbladder, or pancreas.
How should I use Fentora?
Use Fentora exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label. Fentanyl can slow or stop your breathing. Never use this medicine in larger amounts, or for longer than prescribed. Tell your doctor if the medicine seems to stop working as well in relieving your pain.
Fentanyl may be habit-forming, even at regular doses. Never share this medicine with another person, especially someone with a history of drug abuse or addiction. MISUSE OF NARCOTIC MEDICINE CAN CAUSE ADDICTION, OVERDOSE, OR DEATH, especially in a person using the medicine without a prescription. Selling or giving away fentanyl is against the law.
Read all patient information, medication guides, and instruction sheets provided to you. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.
If you have been using another form of fentanyl (injection, skin patch, “lollipop” device), your buccal or sublingual dose may be different.
Do not crush, split, suck, or chew Fentora tablets, or swallow the tablets whole. You will get less relief for your breakthrough cancer pain.
Wait 30 minutes after using Fentora. If there is any of the tablet left in your mouth, you may drink a glass of water to help you swallow the left over medicine.
You can place a Fentora tablet in your mouth above a rear molar tooth between the upper cheek and gum. Switch (alternate) sides of your mouth for each dose. You can also place a tablet on the floor of your mouth, under your tongue. When placing the tablet under your tongue, first lift your tongue, then place the tablet under your tongue and lower your tongue over the tablet.
Use one dose of Fentora for an episode of breakthrough cancer pain.
If your breakthrough cancer pain does not get better 30 minutes after taking the first dose of Fentora, you can use only one more dose as instructed by your healthcare provider. You must not use more than two doses for each episode of breakthrough cancer pain.
If your breakthrough pain does not get better after the second dose of Fentora, call your healthcare provider for instructions. Do not use another dose at this time.
Wait at least 4 hours before treating a new episode of breakthrough cancer pain with Fentora.
If you only need to take one dose of Fentora for an episode of breakthrough pain, you must wait 4 hours from the time of that dose to take a dose for a new episode of breakthrough pain.
If you need to use two doses of Fentora for an episode of breakthrough pain, you must wait 4 hours after the second dose to take a dose for a new episode of breakthrough pain.
It is important for you to keep taking your around-the-clock opioid pain medicine while using Fentora.
Talk to your healthcare provider if your dose of Fentora does not relieve your breakthrough cancer pain. Your healthcare provider will decide if your dose needs to be changed.
Talk to your healthcare provider if you have more than 4 episodes of breakthrough cancer pain per day. The dose of your around-the-clock opioid pain medicine may need to be adjusted.
If you begin to feel dizzy, sick to your stomach, or very sleepy before the tablet is completely dissolved, rinse your mouth with water and spit the remaining pieces of the tablet into a sink or toilet right away. Rinse the sink or flush the toilet to dispose of any remaining tablet pieces.
If you use too much Fentora or overdose, you or your caregiver should call for emergency medical help or have someone take you to the nearest hospital emergency room.
Do not stop using fentanyl suddenly, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Ask your doctor how to safely stop using fentanyl.
