  • Naloxone (also known as Narcan or Kloxxado) is a medication that can reverse an overdose caused by an opioid drug (some examples: heroin, fentanyl, types of pain medications).
  • Naloxone has safely been used by medical professionals for more than 40 years.
  • Naloxone’s purpose: to temporarily reverse the effects of opioids, restore breathing, and prevent overdose death.
  • Naloxone has no risk for abuse or dependency.
  • If you are unsure of the cause of the overdose, give the Naloxone anyway. It will not cause harm.

Note: non-opioid drugs (some examples: cocaine, methamphetamines, or medications not received directly through your pharmacist) may contain opioids (example: fentanyl). In the event of any overdose one should administer naloxone not knowing the purity of the drug.
