Expert Advice

  • Durogesic 50 mcg Patch helps relieve severe and long-lasting pain that is not relieved by other pain medications.
  • Apply it to a clean, dry, unbroken, non-irritated area of skin. Replace it every 3 days, and apply on a different area of skin to prevent skin irritation.
  • Do not expose it to a heat source such as heating pads or hot-water bottles as this may increase the amount of medicine absorbed by your body leading to increased side effects.
  • It may cause dizziness, sleepiness, and headaches. Do not drive or do anything requiring concentration until you know how it affects you.
  • It has a potential for addiction and may cause severe, potentially fatal side effects in an overdose. Take it strictly as per the dose and duration prescribed by your doctor.
  • Do not drink alcohol or take other medicines that can cause drowsiness while using Durogesic 50 mcg Patch.
  • Discontinue the medicine and inform your doctor immediately if you experience difficulty in breathing.
