It is an opioid drug that has killed thousands in the US

It is considered one of the strongest synthetic opioids on the market, and it has deadly consequences.

Due to its increasing spread on the continent, many are wondering what Fentalin is. This drug is considered a more powerful opioid than heroin and 100 times more than morphine.

In the United States, public health is a real issue. Last year alone, 50,000 people died from this drug.

This sign, when organized crime is growing in Chile, the Drug Enforcement Administration of the United States of America to meet with the Carabinero and the Investigative Inquiry of our country to learn how to detect and treat the trafficking of this narcotic and other synthetic).

However, the DEA told Biobío that they cannot verify the presence of fentanyl in Chile. He worries the authorities about their arrival in countries both in the region and in Mexico or Argentina.

What is Fentanyl?

Fentanyl is a synthetic drug prescribed by doctors to treat severe pain, especially during post-operative procedures. But there are also laboratories that produce this drug illegally. Inside the market is also known as Apache, Dancing Fever, Goodfellas, Jackpot and Murder 8.

Most of the drug is considered addictive, and its constant consumption can cause pleasure, pain, sleep problems, among other serious consequences.

This is produced in liquid or powder form, which allows the manufacture of pills, aerosols, injections and other formulations. One of the main problems with fentanyl on the market is that it is combined with other compounds: cocaine, MDMA, heroin, methamphetamine, among others. This is because a small dose of Fentanyl produces strong opioid effects, creating cheaper, more dangerous and addictive compounds.

However, an incorrect dose can cause quite serious side effects. Synthetic opioids, including fentanyl, cause about 150 deaths per day (1) from marijuana. High stress can usually lead to hypoxia (reduction of oxygen to the brain), causing coma, brain damage, and possibly death.

Among the possible signs of drug addiction are:

  • small and constricted pupils
  • Asleep or unconscious
  • complications of the spirit
  • suffocation
  • flabby body
  • Cold or tough skin
  • Black spots on the skin (especially on the lips and nails)
  • To avoid further consequences from a fentanyl overdose, the drug naloxone can be used. In addition, psychological help with a professional can help reduce opioid addiction or dependence.

    Remember that if you have addiction problems, you can call 1412, 24/7, to get information and professional psychosocial care for you or a third party.
