Drug Abuse

Drugs like Fentanyl are prescribed for medical reasons and are not intended to be mixed with other drugs. Combining heroin with fentanyl is considered abuse.



Fentanyl and heroin are both classified as opiates and share many active properties.



Diacetylmorphine, or heroin, is an opiate analgesic derived from the opium poppy.



Fentanyl is one of the most powerful painkillers on the market today and is available by prescription only.



Carfentanil is related to fentanyl, but is over 100x as powerful. A single crystal of carefnatnil (the size of a grain of sand), can kill an adult human.

Fentanyl is the most powerful opioid painkiller today..something like 80 times the strength of morphine. Abusing fentanyl alone is dangerous. Taking more than the recommended dose is plain stupid. Not many bodies can handle excessive doses of fentanyl.

Heroin is also powerful, and carries the risk of being dirty or laced with some mystery substance (..poison). The effects of heroin are also less predictable than these opioid prescription drugs, it is never guaranteed to be safe.

So. Don't mix them. With the right dosage of each (and it's probably less than you think), you will kill yourself, fact.

More recent answer on carfentanil reports it is 100x the potency of morphine, & 5000x the potency of heroin. Manufactured in large quantities by China for export, there is a lot of it out there. It has been killing a lot of people.

Fentanyl manufacturing was more controlled throughout history. Although there have been occasional finds of kilos of fentanyl intended for distribution, most authorities assume there is much more carfentanil out there than fentanyl.

Note that the death counts for morphine are likely to include deaths caused by fentanyl/carfentanil &molecularly similar variants.

The combination of fentanyl and heroin is a terrible idea. You would have no control. Your body would be immobilized to the conscious mind.
