New fentanyl reservoir patch

Sandoz has launched Fentalis (fentanyl) transdermal reservoir patches for the treatment of severe chronic pain. The patches, which should be replaced every 72 hours, are available in four strengths: 25, 50, 75 and 100 microgram/hour.

Opioid-naïve patients should be initiated on the lowest strength; patients who are already receiving opioids need to be treated according to the strength of existing analgesia.
