California Doctor Warns of Counterfeit Xanax Tablets Cut With Fentanyl

At least one person died and eight more were treated in a San Francisco emergency room late last year after taking counterfeit Xanax tablets cut with fentanyl, according toHealthDay.

The tablets looked exactly the same as prescription Xanax. “The users that were exposed to these tablets had no idea it was anything other than what they thought they were buying,” said Dr. Ann Arens, who reported the cases in JAMA Internal Medicine.
