What is Fentanyl?

What is Fentanyl?

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is known to be 50 times more powerful than heroin and 80 to 100 times more powerful than morphine. It only takes about 2 mg of fentanyl to be considered a lethal dose, yet many counterfeit pills have been found to contain up to 5 mg of the substance, which is more than twice the lethal dose.

Unfortunately, the illegal drug market is seeing the presence of even stronger synthetic substances, such as N-pyrrolidino etonitazene, which is 10 times more potent than fentanyl, Etodesnitazene, which can be up to 10 times more potent than fentanyl, Isotonitazene, which is 5 times more potent than fentanyl, and Protonitazene, which is 2 times more potent than fentanyl.

Another substance that has been involved in overdose deaths is Xylazine, which is a veterinary tranquilizer that is not approved for human use. Reports have shown that it is increasingly being mixed with substances like heroin, fentanyl, and cocaine. It is important to note that Xylazine is not an opioid and the effectiveness of naloxone in some overdoses may be compromised.

DEA Authorized Controlled Substance Public Disposal Locations

Prescription drugs should not be disposed of in the trash or flushed down the toilet due to the potential harm they can cause to the environment and public health. When these drugs are discarded improperly, they can contaminate water sources and harm aquatic life. Additionally, they can be accidentally ingested by children, pets, or scavenging animals, leading to harmful side effects. To prevent these dangers, it is recommended to use pharmacy drug disposal boxes. These boxes provide a safe and secure way to dispose of prescription drugs, ensuring that they are properly collected and destroyed. By utilizing pharmacy drug disposal boxes, we can protect our environment and prevent potential harm to public health.
