Fake? Real? How Do You Know?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is up to 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine. In its prescription form, it is prescribed for pain, but fentanyl is also made illegally.
Illicit fentanyl is being used to make fake prescription pills. Fake pills are easy to purchase, often contain fentanyl or other synthetic opioids, and can be deadly. The only safe medications are those prescribed by licensed and accredited medical professionals.
