With the opioid epidemic in full swing and America’s addiction to drug candy kissmanga unrivaled on a global scale, it is no wonder that the drug everyone is talking about right now is fentanyl – a synthetic opioid that doctors prescribe for terminal cancer patients with pain even though it may be 50-100 times stronger than morphine.

If you’ve been curious about what this wonder drug can do, just take a look at this article to find out more. We’ll cover some of the scary facts about fentanyl, how opioids work and what might happen in an overdose and more.

1. Fentanyl is 100x stronger than heroin.

Like most prescription opioid painkillers, fentanyl is a synthetic opioid. And like all other opioids, fentanyl works by binding to the same opioid receptors in the brain which creates a high when smoked, injected, snorted or ingested.

However, while morphine and heroin are usually taken by mouth only, fentanyl can be taken through the skin or rectally as a suppository and in bigger doses can also be injected. It was originally developed as an anesthetic (pain-killing medicine) and because of its relative to morphine (0.05 mg is equal to 1 mg of morphine), it is also much more potent than morphine.

2. Fentanyl is manufactured by a Chinese company.

It’s no surprise that fentanyl is manufactured in China. They were the first batch, and as you may be aware, major drug distributors and manufacturers like to get early access to new product lines and new drugs so they can sell them in the United States for a higher price tag.

One of these drug distributors was New England Compounding Center, which was shut down after 37 lawsuits were filed against them for distributing contaminated drugs. What makes fentanyl so strong is that it can be made into a lot of different forms or mixed with other ingredients to suit different needs. The smallest amount needed to overdose on fentanyl is one microgram (1/1000000 th of a gram).

3. Heroin is a synthetic opioid as well.

Fentanyl and heroin are essentially the same thing, except that one is made by Bayer Pharmaceuticals and the other one is made by a Chinese company, who doesn’t seem to care about what goes into their drug making process as long as they can make as much money off of it as possible.

4. Fentanyl is 100 times more potent than morphine, which makes it very dangerous in medical settings.

The reason that fentanyl is so dangerous in medical settings is because it takes such a small amount of fentanyl to cause an overdose and trigger respiratory depression (difficulty breathing) or even death. Physicians use fentanyl when they need to administer a large dose of anesthesia in a short time period such as during surgery.

5. Fentanyl is the strongest painkiller legally available to the public.

Fentanyl is stronger than any other painkiller on the market that can be purchased legally because it is prescribed for terminal cancer patients for pain management purposes only. Fentanyl can also be obtained if you have cancer as part of a clinical trial or research study, but it’s not something you are going to find on Amazon.com or eBay like you would with heroin, so it’s not exactly something you can snort or smoke recreationally at home because it’ll kill you fast!

6. Fentanyl can be mixed with heroin, cocaine or methamphetamines.

For those looking to get a better high off of any opioid, fentanyl is a perfect addition to your drug line-up due to its potency and low price. Since fentanyl is so strong and potent, a little bit goes a long way and you don’t need much to feel the full effects of opioids. Fentanyl mixes well with heavy drugs like heroin, cocaine or methamphetamines because it doesn’t affect the way they work at all. Which makes it even more dangerous for users who don’t understand that mixing these substances together can cause an overdose or death.

7. A fentanyl overdose will not show up on a drug test.

If you’re looking for a cheap high that won’t be detected by drug tests, fentanyl is the perfect solution for you. A lot of people underestimate how strong this substance can be and usually end up overdosing on it because they don’t realize how much to take or mix it with as well as don’t know how much their tolerance level has decreased since their last use or during their current use.

8. Fentanyl is 100 times stronger than morphine, 50-100x stronger than heroin and even 10x stronger than most prescription opioids.

Fentanyl may be a synthetic opioid, but it is a super-strength opioid and has been known to be anywhere from 50-100 times stronger than the drug most recreational users are familiar with – morphine. Subutex is another synthetic opioid that was once used to help addicts taper off of other opioids, but since fentanyl came around, doctors have stopped prescribing Subutex because it isn’t as potent as fentanyl.

Summary:

Fentanyl is an extremely powerful opioid that is used for pain management for terminal cancer patients. It can also be used in smaller doses with other drugs to get a better high, but it’s pretty obvious why this drug is so dangerous to use. One of the main reasons that fentanyl often causes overdose deaths is because of its potency and strength. The only antidote to an overdose on fentanyl is Narcan, which isn’t readily available to most people unless they have a prescription (which you can only get if you are a cancer patient). Fentanyl mixes well with heroin and methamphetamines because it doesn’t affect the way they work and it can add more of an effect on the user.
