FENTANYL MIXED WITH OTHER DRUGS: A SILENT RISK OF OVERDOSE.
Pharmaceutical Fentanyl can be prescribed by doctors as shots, skin patches, or throat lozenges. Doctors will increase or decrease the dosage depending on the patient’s response within the first 72 hours of treatment.
Now, illegal fentanyl, which has been associated with abuse and overdose, is sold as a powder. It can also be found as nasal sprays, and even made into pills to look like other prescription medication and sold as another drug.
Drug dealers are mixing fentanyl with other opioids like heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine. Since it takes very little to obtain effects from fentanyl, it represents a cheap option to create a higher drug volume. People might be using illegal fentanyl mixed with other drugs without their knowledge, and the consequences could be fatal.
