Fentanyl is a narcotic opioid which is prescribed to patients with severe chronic pain that have been unable to get relief from other narcotic pain medications such as morphine or OxyContin. Fentanyl sends messages to the brain and spinal cord in order to control the intensity of chronic pain that is usually associated with terminal stage cancer patients. Fentanyl is a Schedule II narcotic; giving it an acceptable reason for a medical prescription and it has a very high risk for abuse in which the users can develop a physical and or psychological dependence to it.
Fentanyl can be administered as a pill, skin patch, lozenge, given to the patient in the form of a shot, IV of a film that is placed under the tongue to dissolve. Street abusers of Fentanyl use the fact that it dissolves quickly in liquid to their benefit so that it can be added it to alcoholic substances and certain herbs like basil and be smoked.
Fentanyl has many positive uses, and if used properly and responsibly it can be of use to a patient with severe chronic pain. However, like any other Schedule II narcotic opioid, there is the potential for abuse and misuse. Fentanyl is a hundred times stronger than morphine and forty times the strength of heroin. So as one can see, it is very dangerous and the potential for overdose is very high.
