If you have been harmed by prescribed Fentanyl and/or Methadone, and any of the following is true, please call Lepley, Engelman and Yaw at (570)323-3768 or (800) 422-5396, we can help you with your claim:


  • You or a family member was prescribed Fentanyl or Methadone;
  • A family member died or sustained a catastrophic brain injury;
  • The cause of death is Fentanyl, Methadone, or a missed drug overdose;
  • You or a family member was using all medications as prescribed;
  • You or a family member was not using illegal drugs (with limited exceptions); and
  • The prescribing doctor, nurse, or physician's assistant make a prescribing error.

Common prescribing errors include:


  • Prescribing Fentanyl or Methadone (long-acting drugs) for short term pain (e.g., pain related to an injury or post-surgical pain);
  • Prescribing Fentanyl or Methadone to a patient who is opioid naive (i.e., the patient has not been recently using any opioids leading up to the Rx for Fentanyl or Methadone);
  • Prescribing too large a dose in light of the opioids the patient was using leading up to the Rx for Fentanyl or Methadone, or increasing the dose too fast;
  • Combining Fentanyl or Methadone with other drugs that suppress the central nervous system.
  • Prescribing Fentanyl or Methadone for a patient who is predisposed to respiratory depression because of an underlying condition that affects the patient's ability to breathe (e.g. obesdity/sleep apnea, asthma, COPD, history of smoking, oxygen dependent); or
  • Prescribing Fentanyl or Methadone for a patient who is taking other medications that inhibit the metabolism of Fentanyl or Methdone (e.g., ketoconazole, clarithromycin, erythromycin, fluconazloe).
