SAN DIEGO, Calif. – May 1, 2019 – A study published in JAMA Network Open reports that between January 2013 and September 2018, the presence of non-prescribed fentanyl among urine drug tests also positive for cocaine or methamphetamine rose 1850% and 798% respectively. This analysis provides the public with additional insight into trending increases in reported cocaine- and methamphetamine-related overdoses. Cocaine and methamphetamine related drug overdose deaths are rising sharply. These data suggest the increase may be related to the simultaneous presence of fentanyl, either added directly to the drug supply or used concomitantly.
