Fentanyl dependency and fentanyl addiction are very real problems with very real consequences if allowed to progress. The very nature of opiates such as oxycodone, hydrocodone and Fentanyl makes them potentially habit forming.t’s possible to take Fentanyl safely but the potential to become physically dependent greatly increases the longer the patient remains on the drug. This narcotic analgesic is also said to be more powerful than morphine and is intended to treat breakthrough cancer.
What are Fentanyl Dependency Withdrawal Symptoms
Fentanyl dependency is a consequence of long-term intake. The body becomes used to the drug and will display signs of physical opiate withdrawal if use is stopped abruptly. This can be dangerous so coming off Fentanyl should be a process monitored by a doctor. Some of the physical withdrawal symptoms may also include:
- Muscle pain
- Joint pain
- Rapid heart rate

- Excessive sweating
- Skin sensations
- Stomach Cramps
It is important to discuss these symptoms wit your physician. Some might require immediate medical attention.
Fentanyl Dependency Vs Fentanyl Addiction
Physical and psychological dependence, along with misuse, indicates Fentanyl addiction. Fentanyl addiction often starts as the person’s tolerance to the drug increases, the body adjusts to the level of medication in the system and the drug’s ability to reduce pain diminishes. Often the individual finds that over time they require more of the drug to achieve the same desired effect. In essence, addiction is characterized by physical and psychological dependency, along with some degree of misuse.
Addiction can be complicated by the overwhelming fear of Fentanyl withdrawal. An addiction will drive a person’s behavior regardless of the consequences they may suffer. Behavioral characteristics that may point to addiction include:
- Lack of control over drug use
- Lack of attention to personal hygiene
- Intense cravings
- Manipulating drugs to increase effect (crushing or snorting)
- Doctor shopping
- Continued use despite consequences
- Lying or stealing
Physical symptoms of withdrawal won’t last forever. But if left untreated, psychological withdrawal can linger and greatly hinder the recovery process. As a result, it’s often the case that untreated psychological dependency issues lead to opiate relapse.
