The Washington recently released a lollipop to ease the pain of their wounded soldiers in a war zone. This is not an ordinary lollipop that you can buy in a store but a new powerful painkiller specially created for the soldiers in combat. The Fentanyl lollipop is said to be the replacement from the traditional morphine shot.

In a battle injured soldier, he can take the lozenges in and the effect was said to be faster than the traditional shot. The US marine special forces used the lollipop with greater success and now distributed in other corpsmen.

"The lollipop also gives medics more control over the dosage, as the lozenge can be withdrawn at any moment, unlike a shot of morphine. If the patient goes into shock or if there's a reason that you need to limit the dosage that you're giving to them, you can just pop it out of the mouth in a way that you couldn't (with the syrette)," one insider said.

Interesting. This is good for people who are afraid of needles. I'm not that sure if it will be available in the market as well. Besides, I like the flavor - berry.:)

Cool stuff. But why lollipop? Not in a tablet form, pills or some tiny sweet to suck on

interesting. morphine could be a faster way to inject the painkiller but harder to carry around compared to small sweets.
