What is Fentanyl?
Like other opioids, fentanyl is a painkiller that has been marketed to treat moderate to severe pain, such as chronic pain associated with cancers or pain after surgery. Though many opioid painkillers are prescribed for short-term use, fentanyl is one of the few prescription opioids that has been approved for long-term treatment. It’s perhaps of this intent that fentanyl is particularly addictive. Fentanyl is also reportedly 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine.
Fentanyl can be found and used in the following forms:
- Injectable liquid
- Nasal spray
- Transdermal patches
Fentanyl is also known by its brand names like Actiq, Duragesic, and Sublimaze. Like other opioids, fentanyl acts on your brain’s opioid receptors to reduce feelings of pain and produce a pleasant high that many people enjoy. Common side effects of fentanyl use include extreme happiness, drowsiness, sedation, nausea, and unconsciousness.
Signs of Fentanyl Overdose
People can easily overdose on fentanyl because of its potency, even if it’s their first time using it. However, many overdoses are connected to individuals who have a history of drug abuse, as tolerance requires users to take higher doses of the drug to feel the same happiness. Taking too much can trigger an overdose.
Overdoses also happen when fentanyl is mixed with other drugs. This is a common practice among those with addictions, but sometimes drug dealers will also mix fentanyl with MDMA, heroin, and cocaine as a cheaper option.
Fentanyl overdose is extremely dangerous because it affects a person’s breathing, which can slow down or stop altogether. This leads to hypoxia, a condition caused by the lack of oxygen flow to the brain, and then leads to coma or death. As long as a person with a fentanyl addiction keeps using, they always run the risk of overdosing—calling a trusted rehab center like ours is your best chance of getting the professional help you need.
