What TEMGESIC is used for

TEMGESIC is a strong "pain killer". It is used for the short term relief of moderate to severe pain.

TEMGESIC belongs to a group of medicines called opioid (narcotic) analgesics.

Your doctor may have prescribed TEMGESIC for another reason.

Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why TEMGESIC has been prescribed for you.

TEMGESIC contains the active ingredient, buprenorphine hydrochloride (or buprenorphine). People who take buprenorphine to relieve short term pain do not usually become addicted to it.

It is important that you discuss this issue with your doctor.
