Where Is Fentanyl Absorbed?
Fentanyl is an incredibly powerful synthetic opioid, and it’s used in medical settings for a variety of reasons including for the treatment of severe and chronic pain in people who are resistant to the effects of other opioids. There are different ways fentanyl can be administered including in a transdermal patch form, and orally.
While fentanyl certainly has therapeutic pain relieving benefits, it’s also one of the most commonly abused drugs in the U.S. The majority of illicitly obtained fentanyl comes from China, where there are laxer pharmaceutical regulations. Fentanyl has a high potential for abuse, particularly because its effects occur rapidly but last only a short time, and also because it can create a euphoric high, particularly when taken in larger doses.
Despite the prevalence of fentanyl use, there are still many things people don’t know about this opioid with regard to how it works. Common questions people have are where is fentanyl absorbed, and where is fentanyl metabolized?
