Fentora, used to treat pain in cancer patients, has drawn an FDA warning as a result of deaths in patients who were given the improper dosage or Fentora was incorrectly substituted as a pain management pharmaceutical. The FDA warning stated that Fentora should not be used in cancer patients who are unable to tolerate other opioid
drugs. Fentora was approved by the FDA last year for cancer patients to treat severe pain and who were already taking morphine or other fentanyl drugs.
