Physiology & Medicine / Re: Could someone get dopesick from fentanyl administration in a clinical setting?« on: 09/08/2018 00:25:10 »
I have been out of the field too long, but in the olden days crack was a 100% cocaine based product. During my research times morphine was considered the most effective pain reliever. We did studies eliminating the effects of morphine withdrawal with a combination of drugs that would block the addictive centers of the brain and thus target the pain relief centers. We were able to eliminate 4 of the symptoms of morphine withdrawal in rats by including drugs such as naloxone. The goal of our research was to eliminate the addictive properties of morphine and take advantage of the pain relief properties. Sorry not familiar with fentanyl.
