Game of Chance – Fentanyl & Mixing Drugs
Game of Chance
Accidental overdose deaths can happen when using and mixing pain medications (polysubstance use) with other drugs and alcohol. This includes fentanyl whether taken knowingly or not. It is never safe because the combination may be stronger or more unpredictable than one drug alone.
People may use different drugs and alcohol to change the effect of another drug. This can be a risky game of chance. This is also known as polysubstance use and applies to prescription drugs.
