Pharmaceutical fentanyl is a synthetic opioid pain reliever, approved for treating severe pain, typically advanced cancer pain. As of 2017, fentanyl was the most widely used synthetic opioid in medicine. Fentanyl patches are on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, the most effective and safe medicines needed in a health system.[Source]
Fentanyl is also heroin's synthetic cousin and is extremely dangerous. In the above photo, 30mg of heroin is a lethal dose –– It only take 3mg of fentanyl to kill you! Fentanyl is usually mixed with heroin or cocaine to save the drug dealer money and to make their product have a stronger punch. Additionally, because the dealer's measuring equipment is not sensitive enough, too much fentanyl unfortunately can be added. Because the two drugs look identical, users will not know which one they're taking, many times, until it's too late. The same sized hit last time, might be the users last if cut with fentanyl.
Rapid Rise in Synthetic Opioid Overdose Deaths from Drugs like Fentanyl
Fentanyl analogues may be hundreds of times more potent than street heroin, and tend to produce significantly more respiratory depression, making it much more dangerous than heroin to users. Fentanyl is used orally, smoked, snorted, or injected. Fentanyl is sometimes sold as heroin or oxycodone, often leading to overdoses. Many fentanyl overdoses are initially classified as heroin overdoses.[Source]
