    Default Recall on 18 lots of Fentanyl Patch

    From the American Pain Foundation: Actavis, a generic drug manufacturer, issued a voluntary recall of 18 lots of their 25 mcg Fentanyl patch on October 21, 2010. Individuals who have these lots in their possession and want to return their 25 mcg/h Fentanyl patch can call #877-422-7452 and an Actavis representative will assist them with their return. They have also posted helpful information to their website: www.actavis.us. Look at the lower right corner of the home page for “Fentanyl Recall Information.” Lots and other information about the recall is at http://www.actavis.us/en/Fentanyl_Recall.htm.

    Lots are as follows:

    Oh my. Fentanyl is a BIG DOG. Is this something that can be administered outside the hospital? Life and death is a fine line with this drug.

    Fentanyl patches are used by Hospice and pain specialists for outside the hospital pain control from tumors, injuries, etc.
