Intended Use of Metonitazene

Metonitazene is a novel psychoactive substance (NPS) and a newly discovered, powerful synthetic opioid. It was first discovered in 1957, but it remained under the radar until recently. It started to get attention in 2020 and was added to the rapidly growing list of NPS synthetic opioids. Its rise to prominence began with a series of death investigations all over the U.S. and even in other parts of the world as part of the illicit, recreational drug inventory. It has no known additional, medical value.

How Metonitazene Is Taken

Metonitazene is typically administered orally. It comes in the form of a tablet much like its individual components.
