Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid painkiller. It is a depressant that slows the central nervous system, often dangerously due to its potency. Fentanyl is 100 times more potent than morphine and was initially developed as a prescription pharmaceutical to treat severe pain in advanced cancer patients who may already have a tolerance to opioids. Sadly, the drug has become one of the deadliest illicit substances in history because it can be manufactured in clandestine laboratories for relatively cheap costs compared to less powerful opioid drugs.

Pure fentanyl is a white, crystalline powder substance, but the drug is rarely used in pure form, instead being diluted by other substances. Fentanyl has been showing up in meth, cocaine, ecstasy, and being pressed into fake prescription pills. This is one reason fentanyl is so dangerous, it is added to other drugs, and many do not even know they are taking it.

Fentanyl is so deadly because of its extreme potency. The drug can kill someone through transdermal contact through the skin. People have died from contacting only a few grains of fentanyl. And because the drug is virtually odorless, it is often undetectable to the consumer. So, fentanyl overdoses often happen to people who had no idea they were consuming it. Opioid overdose causes unconsciousness, depresses breathing, and causes the victim to die from suffocation. Unless they’re found within a few minutes of ingestion, their chances of survival are very poor.

Fentanyl can usually be detected on a urinalysis drug for up to 72 hours after last use. However, there are always exceptions that depend upon how heavily the substance is used and for how long. The person’s physiology also affects how quickly the drug is passed from the system.

Fentanyl can be ingested in many ways; the drug can be injected, snorted, swallowed, smoked, or even absorbed transdermally. Since fentanyl is often used for lacing other substances, the method of ingestion usually accompanies whatever other substance is being consumed. For example, if heroin has been laced with fentanyl, the unsuspecting user may intravenously inject it.
