Mixing Alcohol And Ionsys Side Effects, Interactions And Blackouts
Ionsys Addiction Hotline
24/7, Toll-Free, Confidential844-207-6576
Ionsys is a highly controlled medication because of the risks of misuse, addiction and dependence associated with fentanyl and other opioids. Ionsys can only be used in hospitals and can’t be worn when a patient leaves the hospital. Ionsys-prescribing hospitals also have to be part of a specific program that aims to cut down on medication misuse. Despite the controls put in place for the use of Ionsys, it can be diverted from medical use and misused. Illicitly manufactured fentanyl is also often available on the black market. Illicit fentanyl can be thousands of times stronger than morphine, and exposure to it just once can cause a fatal overdose. As with other opioids, the fentanyl delivered through the Ionsys transdermal system attaches to specific receptors in the brain and throughout the central nervous system. When the opioid receptors are activated, it changes how pain signals are sent, and it changes pain sensations. Aside from pain relief, opioids like fentanyl have other effects as well. Opioids can cause mild side effects like dizziness, drowsiness, nausea or vomiting. This drug class can cause more severe side effects as well, including respiratory depression.
