The original blue round pill with the imprint A 51 has been identified as Oxycodone Hydrochloride 30 mg supplied by Amneal Pharmaceuticals. In their latest report on fake online pharmacies that ply their trade in the United States, the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) found more than 1,500 new websites that it considers “Not Recommended,” and of these, 31% are offering illicit prescription drugs, such as fentanyl. Falsified medicines are often the business of criminal cartels. Fentanyl laced pills are responsible for most overdose deaths involving drugs that triggers highs. Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid that is similar to morphine but is 50 to 100 times more potent.
Forensic drug analysis has recently confirmed the first known instance of heroin in tablet form in New Jersey. These counterfeit prescription drugs could lead to more opiate overdoses and deaths. For example, Fentanyl has been the cause of increasing overdose deaths in Ohio. In Franklin County next to Fairfield, the county coroner reported a nearly 75% increase in overdose deaths in just six months.
These spike in overdoses linked to fentanyl has sent health officials and policymakers rushing to find long-range solutions, just as the opioid epidemic appeared to be slowing in parts of the country. According to preliminary data from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office, deaths related to fentanyl continued to rise in the county last year, mirroring a national trend, though it’s difficult to say how many of those fatalities were caused by pills.
