Alfentanil is a short-acting opioid anesthetic given to patients to reduce pain. It is usually given to patients who are undergoing survey and mimics the actions of morphine on the brain.
Every medication has the potential to produce side effects and alfentanil is no different. Common side effects of alfentanil include nausea, hypertension, vomiting, muscle rigidity, bradycardia, tachycardia, hypotension, apnoea, movement disorder, slowed breathing, muscular rigidity, low blood oxygen, low blood pressure, itching, confusion, sleepiness, agitation, dizziness, and drowsiness. Tell your doctor if any of these common alfentanil side effects persist or worsen over time.
Additional rare side effects of alfentanil include fatigue, chills, euphoric mood, injection site pain, and procedural pain.

Patients who take alfentanil exactly as prescribed are still at risk of developing a dependence upon the medication or an alfentanil addiction. If you think that someone you know is developing an alfentanil addiction, seek help as soon as possible. Getting professional help at the early onset of an alfentanil addiction will help ensure a substance-free life in the future.
You may notice certain alfentanil addiction signs in yourself or in someone you love. These signs can include becoming overly preoccupied with finding and taking alfentanil as well as losing interest in the hobbies and activities you once enjoyed. If you notice these signs, seek help immediately.
If you are no longer interested in using the medication, schedule a meeting with your doctor to discuss your options. Most doctors will gradually lower a patient’s dose to give the body adequate time to adjust to less and less of the medication. This strategy of tapering off the dosage will help patients avoid withdrawal symptoms. Never stop taking alfentanil “cold turkey,” as this will increase your risk for withdrawal symptoms. Never adjust your alfentanil treatment schedule or dosage levels without first getting permission from your doctor.
The Recovery Village has many resources available for those who have an alfentanil addiction or another type of substance use disorder. Regardless of whether a patient begins their recovery with inpatient or outpatient alfentanil rehab, they are first required to completely detox from alfentanil. Once the drug is safely removed from the patient’s body, they will then be able to access the many resources at The Recovery Village, including individual and group counseling sessions and recreational therapy activities.
Inpatient alfentanil rehab is a treatment program in which patients live on campus at one of The Recovery Village’s designated inpatient centers while they safely recover from alfentanil addiction. This program is especially beneficial for patients experiencing severe alfentanil addiction or those who may find it difficult to recover from their addiction while living at home. Those in the inpatient alfentanil rehab program will learn coping skills for their individual addiction challenges from professionally trained staff.
After finishing inpatient alfentanil rehab, patients will then begin outpatient alfentanil rehab where they will live at home while coming to The Recovery Village offices for scheduled treatment appointments. Some patients, who may have less a severe alfentanil addiction, may skip inpatient rehab entirely and begin their recovery with outpatient rehab, as this program makes participating in daily life much easier.
Choosing a rehab center is an important step in every patient’s journey to living a happier, healthier, substance-free life. It is recommended that patients schedule a meeting with their doctors to discuss what they may need in an Alfentanil rehab center. You may also call The Recovery Village with any questions you have about its treatment programs. Certain factors you may want to consider when choosing an Alfentanil rehab center are how long you have been using alfentanil and your alfentanil dosage levels.
