Fentora 200 Mcg

When treating breakthrough cancer pain, the initial dose of Fentora® (fentanyl buccal tablets) will depend on certain factors. Some of these factors that may affect your dose are other medications you are taking, other medical conditions you may have, and the type and severity of your pain.
 
Fentora is available in the followings strengths:
 
  • Fentora 100 mcg
  • Fentora 200 mcg
  • Fentora 400 mcg
  • Fentora 600 mcg
  • Fentora 800 mcg.
 
The initial dose normally ranges from Fentora 100 mcg to 400 mcg. Typically, one tablet is dissolved in the mouth every four hours as needed for pain relief.
 
If necessary, your healthcare provider will increase your dosage of Fentora, normally by 100 or 200 mcg, until most of your breakthrough pain episodes are relieved with just one tablet. If one tablet causes severe side effects, your healthcare provider may need to decrease your dose.
