Counterfeit alprazolam leads to one death, multiple ER visits
from HealthDay News via MPR
At least one San Francisco-area individual died and eight more were treated in the emergency department in late 2015 after taking counterfeit alprazolam (Xanax) tablets that had been cut with fentanyl, according to a case report published online Aug. 8 in JAMA Internal Medicine. The counterfeit alprazolam containing fentanyl came to the attention of San Francisco doctors in mid-October 2015, when a man in his 20s and a woman in her 30s were taken to the emergency department at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital after consuming the pills.
