The Duragesic Patch is one of the brands of Fentanyl delivery patches, which has experienced serious problems. It is manufactured by the pharmaceutical giant Johnson and Johnson. Fentanyl is a synthetic opiate meant to treat kinds of pain that other drugs are not sufficiently powerful to treat. The Fentanyl patch is meant to deliver the drug in a controlled way into the body so as to prevent overdose or inconsistency in dosage; however, serious health issues have occurred as a result of Duragesic. Some of these overdoses have resulted in fatalities.

Like the Actavis fentanyl patches, Duragesic patches can cause overdoses and have been know to have leaks that increase the dosage of the drug potentially causing an overdose. In 2005 Johnson and Johnson faced over 70 lawsuits from families of patients who have died as a result of Duragesic patches.
