A new type of fake Xanax is seeping into the market and it’s killing unsuspecting victims. This Xanax dupe is laced with fentanyl, a powerful opiate, which is leading to many emergency room visits and overdoses. Learning about this fake Xanax is the only way to prevent dangerous outcomes and protect your loved ones.
Drug dealers have started manufacturing a counterfeit form of Xanax, a powerful drug prescribed to treat anxiety. It is nearly identical in appearance to Xanax and has already led to several deaths. It made an appearance in the San Fransisco Area late last year and has already made its way through the midwest and onto the streets of Florida, being sold for as little as $5 a pill. The biggest risk associated with this drug is it’s mixed with Fentanyl, a powerful opiate that’s over 10 times stronger than heroin.
Why Is Fake Xanax Dangerous?
Real Xanax helps people who suffer from anxiety. When prescribed by a doctor and used properly, it helps many people deal with various anxiety disorders. However, when misused or combined with other substances, it can cause severe side effects and even overdose. With fake Xanax, that’s exactly what happens.
This pill is the first of its kind and law enforcement agencies across the country have already called this a public health emergency. Just one pill poses a risk of overdose and law enforcement agencies are still unsure of where this new pill is coming from. Police say this fake Xanax has already been found in 21 states.
The only a place a person should ever purchase Xanax from is a local pharmacy when prescribed by a physician. Xanax abuse and addiction are serious problems that require the care and attention of a comprehensive rehab facility. If you or someone in your life struggles with Xanax addiction, find treatment before it’s too late.
