In regards to the synergistic effect of alcohol combined with opiates, it is worthy to mention that the presenting symptom of constricted “pinpoint pupils” may not be evident. If you see someone that you even remotely suspect is under the influence of opiates, and you have access to Naloxone, administer it ASAP. Then stand back and get some distance as patients tend to become violent.

Where do we get fentanl? How do we protect against it if we don’t know where it is?

Fentanyl is a highly potent form of synthetic opiate. Makers of illegal street drugs, such as heroin, cocaine and Oxys have begun mixing them into their product to increase potency.

This has caused the recent increase around the country in accidental overdoses by drug users who are unaware that what they were taking was laced with fentanyl.
Please do not take anything unless prescribed by a lisenced physician.

My own doctor’s office wrote me so many RX’s for pain killers I never requested and they never asked from appointment to appointment if I used them all. Thanks to them I have been in recovery for decade. 4. This is the naive approach that there is not already an opioid problem… Read more »
