Hollywood knocked on my door this morning chasing after me to audition for an upcoming project. I tell you, I live the most adventurous life. I was requested to make believe that I got high with fentanyl. After doing some research I found out, Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid that is similar to morphine but is 50 to 100 times more potent.
It is a prescription drug that is also made and used illegally. Like morphine, it is a medicine that is typically used to treat patients with severe pain, especially after surgery. So I had to figure out what would occur to me when taking this potent chemical. When people overdose on fentanyl, their breathing can slow or stop. This can decrease the amount of oxygen that reaches the brain, a condition called hypoxia. The worst part is Hypoxia can lead to a coma and permanent brain damage, and even death.
Thank God my job is to play, have fun and experience situations, I don't care to do so in real life.
