Effects Of Fentanyl
The name fentanyl comes from the word “fenta” which means to stop or halt, and was first synthesized in 1960 by Paul Janssen. Fentanyl analogs are synthetic opioids with similar chemical structures as fentanyl but different potency levels; these include carfentanil - 100x stronger than heroin because of a few changes on its molecular structure, sufentanil (over 400x stronger), remifantanil (500x stronger) and lofentanils (1000x).
Users report the intense effects of Fentanyl-laced heroin as being extraordinarily pleasurable, and even more so than traditional opiate drugs like Oxycontin or heroin itself. This has led many users who are addicted to these substances wanting nothing but fentanyl laced products in order to get their fix faster and stronger. The drug is not only deadly because it can be hard for people to know when they've overdosed on it, but also because there may be traces of other dangerous chemicals such as rat poison that could cause harm - especially if injected into the bloodstream while using intravenous gear (syringe).
Side effects of fentanyl may include;
drowsiness, stomach pain, gas, heartburn, weight loss, difficulty urinating, changes in vision, anxiety, depression, unusual thinking, unusual dreams, difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep dry mouth, sudden reddening of the face, neck, or upper chest, uncontrollable shaking of a part of the body
back pain, chest pain, sores, or irritation in the mouth in the area where you placed the medication in swelling of the hands, arms, feet, ankles, or lower legs
Some side effects can be serious. If you experience any of these symptoms, call your doctor immediately:
changes in heartbeat, agitation, hallucinations (seeing things or hearing voices that do not exist), fever, sweating, confusion, fast heartbeat, shivering, severe muscle stiffness or twitching, loss of coordination, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, weakness, or dizziness
inability to get or keep an erection, irregular menstruation, decreased sexual desire, seizures, hives, rash, itching
