What is Fentanyl patch?
Fentanyl is a powerful opiate that works by blocking the pain receptors in the brain. Designed originally to treat chronic pain patients in a pill form, the drug was later sold as a patch to be worn and replaced every few days.
Due to defect in manufacture and design, some of the patches deliver an overdose that in many cases causes death.
Defective Patches Recall
Johnson & Johnson and PriCara marketed the most popular brand of the patch under the brand name Duragesic®. However, there are other patches in the marketplace manufactured by a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, Alza Corporation, and marketed by the Santoz brands. Many of these lots have been recalled. Activis Inc. voluntarily recalled all lots of its Fentanyl patches sold in the United States due to known defects.
