What is Fentanyl?
Fentanyl is a synthetic opiate, which has been found to be 50-100 times more addictive than morphine. Fentanyl was originally developed as a narcotic pain reliever for use after surgery to treat severe pain. This substance is found within prescription opiates like Fentora, Sublimaze, and Duragesic, and is often prescribed in tablet, spray, lozenge, or patch form. Each form is highly addictive and potent, putting individuals at risk of a fatal overdose when misused.
