"Fentanyl can kill extremely fast, because it is extremely potent, and for someone who is completely unaware that they're even using fentanyl, they can be dead within minutes," Hail said.



The effects of fentanyl are 50- to 100-times worse than heroin or oxycodone


One of the most common medications used to treat overdose victims is called Narcan. Lots of first responders carry it on them.

We are told sometimes the normal Narcan dose they use isn't enough to stabilize someone who has overdosed on fentanyl.


If you have any questions about fentanyl, contact the North Texas Poison Center, toll-free, at 1-800-222-1222 or visit the center's website.
