Acetylfentanyl Powder (Acetyl fentanyl) is a relative of a powerful prescription painkiller called fentanyl and is five times more potent than heroin as a painkiller, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The illegally produced compound may be secretly mixed with heroin to make it a more potent product, or may be sold in pills disguised as oxycodone. Acetylfentanyl Powder (Acetyl fentanyl) is an opioid analgesic drug that is an analog of fentanyl. Studies have estimated acetylfentanyl to be fifteen times more potent than morphine. It has never been licensed for medical use and instead only been sold as a designer drug. Acetylfentanyl was discovered at the same time as fentanyl itself and had only rarely been encountered on the illicit market in the late 1980s. Acetylfentanyl Powder (acetyl fentanyl) is a member of the phenylpiperdine class of synthetic opioids. Its structure features a piperidine ring bound at its nitrogen constitute RN to a phenyl ring through an ethyl chain. The opposite carbon of the piperidine ring is bonded to the nitrogen member of a acetamide group, a two carbon chain with a nitrogen constitute adjacent to a carbon bonded to a ketone oxygen. This acetamide group is also substituted with an additional phenyl ring at RN. Acetylfentanyl is a structural homologue to fentanyl, with one less carbon on its amide chain.
Depressants (1,4-Butanediol, 2m2b, alcohol, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, GHB / GBL, methaqualone) – This combination can result in dangerous or even fatal levels of respiratory depression. These substances potentiate the muscle relaxation, sedation and amnesia caused by one another and can lead to unexpected loss of consciousness at high doses. There is also an increased risk of vomiting during unconsciousness and death from the resulting suffocation. If this occurs, users should attempt to fall asleep in the recovery position or have a friend move them into it. Dissociatives – This combination can result in an increased risk of vomiting during unconsciousness and death from the resulting suffocation. If this occurs, users should attempt to fall asleep in the recovery position or have a friend move them into it. Stimulants – It is dangerous to combine acetylfentanyl, a depressant, with stimulants due to the risk of excessive intoxication. Stimulants decrease the sedative effect of acetylfentanyl, which is the main factor most people consider when determining their level of intoxication. Once the stimulant wears off, the effects of acetylfentanyl will be significantly increased, leading to intensified disinhibition as well as other effects. If combined, one should strictly limit themselves to taking a certain amount of acetylfentanyl.
Older patients are more likely than younger individuals to experience adverse effects, especially the respiratory depressant effects of fentanyl. Extreme caution and monitoring must be followed with this age group. Side effects of this drugs include: drowsiness confusion constipation weakness dry mouth constricted pupils unconsciousness slowed breaths decreased heart rate nausea sweating flushing confusion stiff or rigid muscles tight feeling in the throat difficulty in concentrating Adverse effects associated with transdermal fentanyl patches include redness, rash, itching , and swelling at the site of application.
