WHAT IS NALOXONE?

Naloxone is a synthetic drug that blocks or reverses the effects of opioid medication, including extreme drowsiness, slowed breathing or loss of consciousness. An opioid is sometimes called a narcotic.

Naloxone is used to treat a narcotic overdose in an emergency situation. This medicine should not be used in place of emergency medical care for an overdose.

Naloxone is also used to help diagnose whether a person has used an overdose of an opioid.

NALOXONE KITS

A Naloxone Take Home Injectable (THN) Kit contains everything that is needed to help reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.

Each kit contains: Two (2) 0.4 mg/ml bottles naloxone, alcohol swabs, latex gloves, rescue breathing mask, syringes, and steps to respond to an opioid overdose. When injecting naloxone the needle into the muscle tissues it takes 2-3 minutes to take effect.
