Fentanyl is identified as a synthetic opioid, in accordance with the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
“Some drug dealers mix the fentanyl drug with other drugs including methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine and MDMA. It takes only a few minutes to create the high associated with fentanyl which makes it a less expensive option” the institute added:
It is especially dangerous when those who take drugs aren't aware that they could contain fentanyl as an inexpensive but risky additive. It is possible that they are taking more opioids than they are used to and may be more prone to overdose.
Similar to heroin, morphine, and other opioids, fentanyl is a drug that binds with the opioid receptors in your body which are located in regions of the brain that regulate emotions and pain. When you take opioids on a number of occasions, your brain adjusts to the substance, decreasing its sensitivity. This makes it difficult to experience satisfaction from anything else other than the substance.
