Seek the Guidance of Our Columbia Dangerous Drug Attorney
Fentanyl is a strong pain medication prescribed to individuals experiencing
chronic pain. A common delivery system is through the use of a Fentanyl
Pain Patch, which is designed to slowly release the drug. Fentanyl Pain
Patches are manufactured by Johnson & Johnson, Duragesic, Sandoz,
Alza Corporation, Watson, Actavis, and Mylan and come in dosages from
12.5 - 100 mcg / hr.
The Fentanyl Pain Patch can become deadly when it fails to administer the
Fentanyl in a slow and controlled manner. This can occur if the patch
is defective or leaks an excess amount of the
dangerous drug onto the skin. These deaths may occur quickly, with no warning or opportunity
for the victim to remove the patch, alert their family or seek medical help.
Lost a Loved One from Fentanyl?
Victims of the Fentanyl Pain Patch can come from all walks of life. Individuals
who are otherwise healthy can easily succumb to an overdose of the medication
caused by a patch malfunction. Versions of the Fentanyl Pain Patch have
even been recalled by the FDA. Although there has been a steady progression
of related deaths around the country, the drug manufactures have continued
to market and sell the Fentanyl Pain Patch and have made millions in profits.
