Fentanyl does come in pill form, Fentanyl Buccal Tablets, however, my understanding is it is only to be used for opioid tolerant cancer patients. Fentanyl comes in injection, patches and a sucker,(lollipop) forms for other use. They gave me a lollipop to suck on when I had my bone marrow biopsy, along with a shot of something else. I use the patches for chronic pain management. My understanding is also that you should never be given Fentanyl unless you are proven opioid tolerant. Hope this helps
