Typically prescribed by doctors to alleviate severe pain following a surgical procedure, Fentanyl is a potent and highly addictive opioid pain medication. When taken appropriately, this medication can provide the much needed relief men and women need to recover following an operation. However, if this medication is taken for recreational purposes, whether on its own or in combination with another substance, it can mark the inception of an incredibly powerful addiction. Should a person misuse Fentanyl and abruptly stop consuming it, withdrawal symptoms are likely to manifest, which can compromise any efforts made to break free from this dangerous form of chemical dependency.
