There is a drug that in recent years has drawn special attention for its danger. Its about opioid known as 'Pink' (pink in English), or Drug U-47700. Let's see better what it is.
An opioid seven times more potent than morphine
Although its pink color may seem innocent and harmless, nothing is further from reality. Behind its appearance hides a synthetic opioid that It has already caused dozens of deaths in recent years in the US.
Is the call pink heroine, which has just been banned in this country. The problem that has led to alarms about this substance is that they involve very high levels of poisoning in those who consume it.
Another problem with this drug is that it has been proven that It is resistant to naloxone. What does this mean? To understand it, let's look better at what this substance is and what it is used for.
Naloxone is an opioid receptor antagonist. This substance is used to treat and cure acute opioid poisoning. In other words, it is one of the most effective treatments to end opioid poisoning.
Most commonly, a single dose can reverse poisoning and save the person's life. However, in the case of this new drug is necessary to administer several doses, sometimes even up to six or eight doses.
As we said, in the US it is where the alarms have jumped when there are about a hundred deaths related to the consumption of this drug. After conducting the relevant toxicological analyzes, researchers have discovered that this substance is composed of several opiates.
Among the mixture are fentanyl, car fentanyl and fentanyl. However, the synthetic substance that predominates in the compound is called U-47700, a substance that was not illegal in the US until just a few years ago.
That is, to make this drug it was possible to acquire this substance legally. In fact, it is even possible to buy it online easily and receive it in your own home. It's that simple and that simple.
Effects of the drug Pink
The effects of this substance are similar to those of other opiates. They are analgesics, but also cause euphoria. Its potency is estimated to be up to seven times more potent than morphine, although slightly less than fentanyl, one of the most potent opiates used in medicine.
This substance known as 'Pink' causes euphoria, relaxation, but also breathing difficulties and addiction. It is calculated to be up to seven and a half times more potent than morphine. This makes the treatment before a poisoning box very complicated.
The fact is that this drug has been among the most demanded in the countries in which it is being used, such as the US. This is due to the high power it has and the effects it causes, as it is a true chemical impact that takes place in the brain of the consumer.
The synthetic opioid called U-47700 or Pink is consumed in various ways. Some consumers directly inject it, although it can also be ingested, smoked or snorted, just like heroin.
In fact, it is heroin addicts who have found in this drug a substitute or complement to achieve new effects. However, this drug is much more dangerous because of how potent it is, in addition to being more unknown in the field of medicine and scientific research.
The compound reaches such a high toxicity that the researchers conclude that it's so dangerous that it can damage even just by touching it, because the skin has the ability to even absorb it. This data helps us to get an idea of the magnitude of the situation and how it can affect the organism.
The appearance of this substance, along with others such as the so-called Gray Death, has triggered alarms in the US. This country in the last five years is experiencing what Many experts agree to call "opioid cocktail".
That is, the combination of various opioid substances commonly used in the field of psychiatry and mental health as a drug to engage consumers eager for new experiences.
This also generates a strong addiction among people that consume them, in addition to exposing themselves to immediate death, since they are new and little known drugs for which there is still no shock remedy in case of intoxication.
In summary, all drugs are dangerous because of their condition as an addictive substance that can cause damage to our health. In this case, the danger is even greater, because being so powerful, a high dose can be lethal.
