ONLY IF YOU INGEST IT –   

Sept. 16, 2022 – Deaths linked to drugs are on the rise. In their report issued Sept. 16, Jessica Korona-Bailey and colleagues said that “four times as many nitazene-involved overdoses were identified in Tennessee in 2021 than in 2020, and this number could be underestimated because of low testing frequency.”

Overall, deaths in Tennessee known to be linked to the synthetic opioids rose from 10 in 2020 to 42 one year later, with a majority of those killed being young males (average age 40). 

What’s worse, naloxone—the antidote injection that can save the life of someone suffering an opioid overdose—may not help if given in a single dose in cases involving nitazenes.
