What is Fentanyl?

Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid used to treat severe pain, such as cancer, post-surgery, and people with chronic pain. It is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine. Illicitly manufactured fentanyl comes in liquid and powder form and is often mixed into other drugs, it is the leading cause of increased overdose deaths in the United States. Liquid or highly concentrated fentanyl can be absorbed rapidly into the skin and can be extremely toxic.
