Nitazene Addiction

Nitazenes, known as the colloquial name for synthetic benzimidazole opioids, is a class of synthetic opioids now being heavily trafficked. Nitazenes have no known legitimate use in the medical industry and are unusually structured opioid drugs. Nitazenes can be hundreds of times more powerful than morphine, far surpassing what fentanyl is capable of. These drugs are so powerful that physicians will not prescribe them due to the high risk of overdose. Opioids are drugs that are either found in the opium poppy plant or synthesized in labs to create a molecular makeup that’s similar to organically-originating opioids. The DEA states that the upward trend in nitazene purchases began in 2019.

Intended Use of Nitazene

Nitazenes have no known medical use.

How Nitazene Is Taken

Nitazenes are normally added to other drugs, usually pills that contain an opioid drug. Toxicology analyses co-identified some of these benzimidazole opioids with other opioids, stimulants, and benzodiazepines. Because abusers of these benzimidazole-opioids are likely to obtain them through unregulated sources, the identity, purity, and quantity are uncertain and inconsistent, thus posing significant adverse health risks to the users.
