What is Fentanyl?

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid; it is 50 times more powerful than heroin and 80 to 100 times more powerful than morphine. Experts consider 2 mg of fentanyl to be a lethal dose; many counterfeit pills tested contain up to 5 mg (more than twice the lethal dose)

In addition to fentanyl, the illegal drug market is also seeing other types of synthetics in the supply, which are stronger:

N-pyrrolidino etonitazene—10x more potent than fentanyl;

Etodesnitazene—Up to 10x more potent than fentanyl;

Isotonitazene—5x more potent than fentanyl;

Protonitazene—2x more potent than fentanyl;

Xylazine, a veterinary tranquilizer, has become increasingly involved with overdose deaths nationally. This substance is not approved for human use; however, recent reports indicate an increase in xylazine prevalence mixed and used with substances like heroin, fentanyl, and cocaine. Xylazine is not an opioid and the effectiveness of naloxone in some overdoses may be compromised.
