Along with sharing the addictiveness of other opioids, fentanyl also has similar side effects as well. But other than the feelings of euphoria that it produces, the remainder of the side effects are negative. The mildest of the symptoms include:
- Slurred speech
- A shorter attention span and confusion
- Constricted pupils
- Drowsiness and sedation
- Constipation, nausea, and vomiting
- Swelling of the hands and feet
Unfortunately, the effects of fentanyl use don’t stop there, and this drug has many other more dangerous and more long-term physical, behavioral, social, and psychological impacts. Among the symptoms you may experience are impaired memory and attention span, unconsciousness, coma, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD and social withdrawal, immune system problems, paranoia, delusions and hallucinations, and letting relationships fall by the wayside.
