whoops, I meant to say, "Yes it is for chronic non-cancer pain". Sorry.
Yes is it for chronic non-cancer pain.
There is now oral Fentanyl in a dissolvable tablet called Fentora but it is indicated only for cancer pain. However, there are a few patients with chronic non-cancer pain that have been prescribed Actiq (the fentanyl lolipops) or Fentora if and only if all other treatments failed and they are experiencing intractable pain, also known as suicide pain.
