Common side effects of Duragesic include nausea, vomiting, constipation, lightheadedness, dizziness, drowsiness, headaches, and mild irritation or redness at the application site. Most of these common Duragesic side effects should go away after the medication has been used for a while. If they do not go away, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
Serious Duragesic side effects are relatively uncommon, but patients may still experience them. Serious Duragesic side effects can include mental changes, agitation, confusion, hallucinations, severe stomach or abdominal pain, difficulty urinating, slow or irregular heartbeat, loss of appetite, unusual tiredness, and weight loss. Call your doctor right away if you notice any of these serious side effects.

Long-term use of Duragesic and an increased tolerance also predisposes patients to developing a Duragesic addiction. This may cause them to engage in drug-seeking behavior, characterized by abusing Duragesic or other opioid analgesics in order to produce the same euphoric effects that they are used to.
