What Led to the DURAGESIC Patch Recall?
Since Janssen Pharmaceutica Products, L.P., a company owned by Johnson & Johnson, recalled the DURAGESIC Patch in April 2004, our lawyers in Arizona have continued to pursue justice for those affected by its potentially life-threatening side effects.
The patch was originally designed to deliver a carefully measured dose of fentanyl, a DEA Schedule II narcotic, directly into the bloodstream. However, it was found to have a potentially faulty seal that could result in the leakage of large amounts of the drug. If a faulty DURAGESIC Patch is applied to the skin, an excessive amount of the strong narcotic could lead to an overdose resulting in varied symptoms.
Potentially Life-Threatening Side Effects of the DURAGESIC Patch
If you or a loved one is currently experiencing any of the following symptoms and feel that they may be linked to use of the DURAGESIC Patch, contact a medical professional immediately.
- Excessive Drowsiness
- Labored Breathing
- Respiratory Failure
- Possible Cardiac Arrest
- Coma, and even Death
In addition, the DURAGESIC Patch has been found to have the potential to leak prior to its application to the skin, resulting in symptoms such as withdrawal, abdominal discomfort and sleeplessness.
