Fentora is designed to be absorbed across the oral mucosa. The tablet is placed in the lining of the gums or held under the tongue until it fully dissolves.
Fentora treatment plans have a high potential to develop the psychological disease of addiction. Prior to treatment, patients should be educated about the risks associated with prolonged used of powerful opioids like Fentora. Fentora is not indicated for use in non-opioid tolerant individuals due to the risk of life-threatening respiratory depression. Several cases have been documented where patients have died following their initial dose of fentanyl.
The amount of Fentora required to overdose varies significantly between patients based on several metabolic factors. For example, Fentora is primarily processed by the liver, therefore a history of liver disease increases the risk of overdose.
Fentora achieves its analgesic (pain-relieving) effects by binding to opioid mu-receptors in the body. In doing so, Fentora produces dose-dependent respiratory depression.
Peak effects on respiratory depression are reached within 15 to 30 minutes from the time of mucosal absorption and can last for several hours. The time of initial onset is the highest risk time for life-threatening respiratory depression.
Severe respiratory depression is possible even at normal doses. Respiratory depression is achieved by direct action on brain stem respiratory centers. This results in a reduction in the responsiveness of the brain stem to elevated carbon dioxide levels and electrical impulses.

Both the effective concentration for therapeutic use and the concentration at which toxicity occurs increases with elevated opioid tolerance. The rate at which tolerance develops can vary widely.
As Fentora concentration in the blood plasma increases so does the risk of adverse reactions to the drug. Individuals may experience increased respiratory depression, nausea, vomiting, and central nervous system effects such as extreme lethargy.
Naloxone can begin to take effect within seconds when administered via nasal or intravenous routes. Following administration, individuals should be watched closely for returning symptoms of respiratory depression. The active half-lives of opioid antagonists are significantly shorter than those of opioids. As naloxone or nalmefene wears off, respiratory depression can return.
Treatment with opioid antagonists can precipitate the onset of severe post-acute opioid withdrawal symptoms. The severity of withdrawals will be dependent on the frequency of opioid use and the patient’s degree of dependence. Early onset symptoms of opioid withdrawal can include muscle aches, trouble sleeping, anxiety, excessive sweating, high blood pressure, tearing up, agitation, yawning, runny nose, rapid heart rate, and fever.
