What drugs in Ohio may contain fentanyl?

All illicit drugs in Ohio — except marijuana — may contain the opioid fentanyl or a fentanyl analog that can cause a potentially fatal overdose. Half of fentanyl overdoses deaths are caused by mixtures with stimulants (meth, cocaine). High doses of prescription opiates — such as oxycodone, fentanyl, hydrocodone and morphine — may cause overdoses, too. 

Who should order at this site?

Ohio residents who may be in a position to reverse an overdose should consider carrying naloxone. This is especially true for family members, friends, co-workers, neighbors and service providers in contact with people who use drugs other than marijuana. People who stimulants and non-opioid drugs (other than cannabis) are at significant risk of fentanyl overdose and should carry naloxone, as should people in contact with people who use drugs.  

Can I order fentanyl test strips?

Yes. Please request them in the comment section when ordering naloxone. Fentanyl test strips will be added soon as an option to our online form.
