FDA Issues Warning For Pain Killer Drug Fentora

Comments Off

U.S. Drug regulators issued a public health advisory about the potential risks of a pain drug made by Cephalon Inc.

The drug, Fentora, has been aproved to treat cancer patients whose severe pain cannot be controlled from other pain killers such as morphine and other pain releiver drugs. Fentora is 80 times stronger than morphine and has been linked to some recent deaths after taking Fentora. The FDA has asked Cephalon Inc., the drug’s manufacturer to improve safety labels for the drug that reflect safety messages about the drug, which comes in pill form.
