Fentanyl Buccal Soluble Film Information

If you have cancer and experience breakthrough pain despite using an around-the-clock pain medication, your healthcare provider may prescribe fentanyl buccal soluble film (OnsolisTM). This medication is a strong opioid narcotic, which comes in the form of a small film that is dissolved in the mouth on the inside of the cheek. It is typically used every two hours as needed for pain; however, do not use more than four doses in a 24-hour period.
 
Although most people tolerate this medication well, it is not suitable for everyone. Before using fentanyl buccal soluble film, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information on any other drugs you are taking and any other medical problems you may have. For example, fentanyl buccal soluble film has a significant potential for physical dependence and abuse, so it may not be a good choice for people who have a history of alcohol or drug abuse.
