Fentanyl Lozenge Description
Oral Transmucosal Fentanyl Citrate (OTFC) is a solid formulation of fentanyl citrate, a potent opioid analgesic, intended for oral transmucosal administration. OTFC is formulated as a white to off-white solid drug matrix on a handle that is fracture resistant (ABS plastic) under normal conditions when used as directed.
OTFC is designed to be dissolved slowly in the mouth to facilitate transmucosal absorption. The handle allows the OTFC unit to be removed from the mouth if signs of excessive opioid effects appear during administration.
I am on Fentanyl lollipops 400mcg every six hours and have been on fentanyl for the past two years or so. My stomach processes everything so slowly I am unable to take any form of pain meds with having a "mini overdose" in 5 to 7 days. Fentanyl suckers start out at 200mcg and go up 200mcg each time it stops working as well as it was.
Yes actually this is already on the market! Actually saw it on the TV show "Intervention" on A&E... I can't tell how well it works cause the girl they thought was addicted to them was actually delusional and had severe mental issues before any meds... I do know for sure that these are real
