  5. Can you die from smoking heroin?
Asked: 2018-04-21 01:31:26
I caught my brother smoking heroin in the bathroom on the side of the house. I am way freaked out with all the news on fentanyl and other stuff being put into heroin.

If the heroin in laced with fentanyl or substance a-like the risk potential of overdose death from smoking heroin increases drastically. If your brother is open to it maybe try getting him some help. You, yourself could talk to another family member so your not carrying the weight of your brother heroin addiction alone.

Heroin in what-ever form that it is consumed can cause an overdose. Opiate or heroin overdose causes respiratory depression and failure resulting in death.
