I can’t say anything for heroin (having never used it), but Fentanyl is a very good medication for severe pain relief. I used it for a period after a bad car accident and it took my back a long time to heal. It works quickly and it is strong and I did not become addicted to it. I’m sorry that the manufacturer is taking a hit over this. Obviously, people will use and abuse anything.
