It’s common for someone to take a pill without knowing it contains fentanyl. It’s also possible to take a pill knowing it contains fentanyl, but with no way of knowing if it contains a lethal dose.

You can’t see it, smell it or taste it.

Even your dealer might not know what they are selling or how strong it is. Because fentanyl is so strong, the difference between a dose that will get you high and a dose that can kill you is very small.

fentanyl was responsible for 75% of all drug-related deaths in 2021

Common Questions


fentanyl, similar to other commonly used opioid analgesics (e.g., Morphine), produces effects such as:

  • euphoria
  • pain relief
  • relaxation
  • sedation
  • confusion
  • drowsiness
  • dizziness
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • urinary retention
  • pupillary constriction

The onset of an overdose caused by fentanyl can occur at a much quicker rate (sometimes within seconds) than other drugs, due to the potency of fentanyl. In the majority of cases, fentanyl overdoses appear very similar to opioid overdoses. However, typical overdose symptoms due to fentanyl have been reported, including:

  • Immediate blue or grey lips
  • Body stiffening/ seizure like activity
  • Foaming at the mouth
  • Confusion before becoming unresponsive
  • Immediate respiratory failure leading to death
