The Flash (TV Series)

The Flash is an American superhero television drama series developed by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, and Geoff Johns, airing on The CW.

It is based on the Barry Allen incarnation of DC Comics character the Flash, a costumed superhero crime-fighter with the power to move at superhuman speeds. It is a spin-off from Arrow, existing in the same fictional universe known as Arrowverse.

The series follows Barry Allen, portrayed by Grant Gustin, a crime scene investigator who gains super-human speed, which he uses to fight criminals, including others who have also gained superhuman abilities.

 

What Is Fentanyl?

Fentanyl is a human-made opioid used to treat severe pain.

It’s 50 to 100 times stronger than morphine. The drug interacts with receptors in your brain to create feelings of pain relief, relaxation, contentment, and pleasure.

While it’s safe for your doctor to give you fentanyl in a medical setting, some people abuse it, which can lead to an overdose.

 

Why Do Doctors Prescribe Fentanyl?

A doctor might prescribe fentanyl if you have severe pain due to cancer, nerve damage, serious injury, or major surgery.
