What is Fentanyl?

Fentanyl is a human-made opioid used to treat severe pain. It’s much stronger than morphine. The drug interacts with receptors in your brain to create feelings of pain relief, relaxation, contentment, and pleasure.

While it’s safe for your doctor to give you fentanyl in a medical setting, some people abuse it, which can lead to an overdose. It’s one of the most common drugs involved in overdose deaths. The reason why is because it is highly addictive.
