Fentanyl Lozenge Drug Information

The fentanyl lozenge (Actiq®) is a prescription medicine approved to relieve breakthrough cancer pain in people who are already taking long-acting opioid medication for chronic pain.
 
Before using a fentanyl lozenge, 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, this medication 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.
 
The fentanyl lozenge is used every four hours as needed for pain. However, do not exceed four lozenges each day.
