The medication is classified as an opioid analgesic. Sufentanil works by acting on the central nervous system (CNS) to relieve pain that patients may be experiencing. This medication is only intended to be administered under the immediate supervision of a doctor.
The most common side effects associated with using Sufentanil are apnea, rigidity, and bradycardia. Other side effects of Sufentanil, which should be reported to your doctor or nurse immediately, include agitation, blurred vision, confusion, cough, darkening of the skin, diarrhea, difficulty breathing, difficulty swallowing, dizziness, faintness, lightheadedness, fainting, fast heartbeat, fever, hives, itching, skin rash, irregular or shallow breathing, loss of appetite, mental depression, muscle stiffness, nausea, overactive reflexes, pale or blue lips, poor coordination, puffiness or swelling of the eyelids, restlessness, shivering, sweating, tightness in the chest area, trembling or shaking, twitching, unusual tiredness or weakness, and vomiting.
To avoid severe withdrawal symptoms, it is recommended that Sufentanil patients set up a meeting with their doctors. Sufentanil should not be stopped suddenly or “cold turkey,” as this will greatly increase your risk of experiencing enhanced withdrawal symptoms.
