opioids > Synthetic opioid > Fentanyl

 

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid,

prescribed to help patients

deal with severe pain.

 

Opioids help to reduce patientsí

perception of their suffering

and can induce a state

of extreme relaxation and euphoria.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/03/health/what-is-fentanyl.html

 

 

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid

30-50 times more potent than heroin

and 50-100 times more potent than morphine,

according to

the Drug Enforcement Administration.

 

Two milligrams is enough

to be a lethal dose for most people,

the agency says.
