System Components And Structure
The amount of fentanyl released from each system per hour is proportional to the surface area (25 mcg/h per 10.5 cm²). The composition per unit area of all system sizes is identical
DURAGESIC is indicated for the management of pain in opioid-tolerant patients, severe enough to require daily, around-the-clock, long-term opioid treatment and also for which alternative treatment options are inadequate.
Patients considered opioid-tolerant are those who are taking, for one week or longer, at least 60 mg of morphine daily, or at least 30 mg of oral oxycodone daily, or at least 8 mg of oral hydromorphone daily, or an equianalgesic dose of another opioid.

Storage And Handling
DURAGESIC (fentanyl transdermal system) is supplied in cartons containing 5 individually packaged systems.
Administration Of DURAGESIC
DURAGESIC patches are for transdermal use, only.
Proper handling of DURAGESIC is necessary in order to prevent serious adverse outcomes, including death, also associated with accidental secondary exposure to DURAGESIC [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
Application And Handling Instructions:
-Patients should apply DURAGESIC to intact, non-irritated, and non-irradiated skin on a flat surface such as the chest, back, flank, or upper arm. In young children and persons with cognitive impairment, adhesion should be monitored and the upper back is the preferred location to minimize the potential of inappropriate patch removal. Hair at the application site may be clipped (not shaved) prior to the system application. If the site of the DURAGESIC application must be cleansed prior to application of the patch, do so with clear water. Note that, o not use soaps, oils, lotions, alcohol, or any other agents that might irritate the skin or alter its characteristics. Allow the skin to dry completely prior to patch application.
-Patients should apply DURAGESIC immediately upon removal from the sealed package. The patch must not be altered (e.g., cut) in any way prior to application. DURAGESIC should not be used if the pouch seal is broken or if the patch is cut or damaged.
-The transdermal system is pressed firmly in place with the palm of the hand for 30 seconds, making sure the contact is complete, especially around the edges.
-Each DURAGESIC patch may be worn continuously for 72 hours. The next patch is applied to a different skin site after removal of the previous transdermal system.
-If problems with adhesion of the DURAGESIC patch occur, the edges of the patch may be taped with first aid tape. In case of problems with adhesion persist, the patch may be overlayed with a transparent adhesive film dressing.
-If the patch falls off before 72 hours, dispose of it by folding it in half and flushing it down the toilet. A new patch may be applied to a different skin site.
Limitations Of Use:
-Because of the risks of addiction, abuse, and misuse with opioids, even at recommended doses, and because of the greater risks of overdose and death with extended-release opioid formulations, reserve DURAGESIC for use in patients for whom alternative treatment options (e.g., non-opioid analgesics or immediate-release opioids) are ineffective, not tolerated, or would be otherwise inadequate to provide sufficient management of pain.
