Naloxone (generic for Narcan) is used to treat opioid drug overdose. Use naloxone if someone has overdosed on opioids and has stopped breathing or is not breathing normally.
Avoid if allergic to naloxone.
Many opioids last longer than naloxone, so a patient may become comatose again after the naloxone wears off but the opioid remains. Seek emergency medical attention after giving naloxone. Naloxone can cause immediate opioid withdrawal symptoms. Naloxone may not work well when used to reverse partial opioid agonists, like buprenorphine.
