Spaulding Decon provides efficient and thorough fentanyl cleanup services for residents in the Tampa, Florida, area. We understand the potency of this drug and take this type of cleanup very seriously. Fentanyl is typically used for patients seeking pain relief, such as those living with chronic pain, but in recent years, it has become a go-to substance for drug manufacturers who are lacing it in other drugs like heroin or cocaine. On its own, fentanyl is incredibly fatal because even the tiniest dose can have life-threatening effects. If you suspect your home or commercial property has been used as a drug lab to manufacture fentanyl, count on Spaulding Decon for cleanup services that will take care of this problem for you.
What Are the Effects of Fentanyl?
For those who use fentanyl responsibly (that is, through a controlled prescription), they will experience pain relief and relaxed muscles. Unfortunately, not everyone uses fentanyl responsibly and thus can experience the more unpleasant side effects of this drug. Short-term side effects include nausea and/or vomiting, altered heart rate, hallucinations, confusion, and seizures. Longer-term effects include worsening pre-existing medical conditions, damaging your organs, and reducing your judgment skills. Not to mention, as with any drug, there is the potential for overdose and death.
How Does Fentanyl Differ from Other Drugs?
One of the ways fentanyl is different is its potency. Even a tiny amount, the equivalent of six grains of salt, can be fatal. It is said to be 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine, which is why it is used for cancer patients who are opioid-tolerant and need something stronger for pain relief.
Another way fentanyl is different is the way it can be absorbed — even just brushing away the powder with your hand can cause you to ingest the drug and overdose on it. With other drugs, they must be injected, snorted, or smoked, but fentanyl can be absorbed through the skin without you even knowing it. (This is why it is so important to have Spaulding Decon come to your location in Tampa, FL, to perform a fentanyl cleanup.
