The Dangers of Fentora Abuse

There are many dangers associated with abusing narcotic medications, including Fentora. Taking too much of this drug can be physically dangerous. Large doses can cause breathing problems, extreme sedation, coma, and even death, especially in people who are not used to the medication. Even what seems like a small Fentora dose may be dangerous to someone who is not used to taking the medication.
The emotional and social consequences of abuse can also be devastating. Relationships and careers can be destroyed, and years of hard work can be ruined in a short amount of time. Abuse can also affect society through violence, drug-related crimes, and car accidents.

Who Is at Risk for Abusing Fentora?

Drug abuse can happen to anyone. However, not everyone who uses the medication will abuse it. Unfortunately, it is difficult to know beforehand who will develop a problem and who will not.
Some people, however, have an increased risk for abuse. This includes people with a personal or family history of addiction or drug or alcohol abuse, and people with mental health problems, such as depression.

Where to Go for Help

If you feel you may be developing a problem with Fentora addiction or abuse, please seek help. Addiction is a treatable illness; however, you cannot overcome it alone. Your healthcare provider is a great place to start when searching for help. He or she will be able to assist you in dealing with the problem, or may suggest other resources.
