With the recent uptick in fatal overdoses due to fentanyl found in counterfeit pills, Public Health wants to be sure everyone has the information they need to stay safe.
Read and share the following information with everyone you know:
- Do not consume any pill that you do not directly receive from a pharmacy or your prescriber.
- Pills purchased online are not safe.
- Counterfeit pills look like legitimate oxycodone pills, but contain fentanyl and fillers. Even a tiny amount of fentanyl can be fatal.
- Know the signs of overdose.
