Background Information

Naloxone is an easy-to-use, lifesaving medication that can reverse the effects of overdose from heroin or other opioids, including morphine, methadone, codeine, and other drugs derived from the poppy plant.

Naloxone rapidly reverses the effects of opioid overdose and is the standard treatment for overdose. 

Sold under the brandname Narcan among others, Naloxone is a medication used to block the effects of opioids, especially in overdose. Naloxone may be combined with an opioid to decrease the risk of misuse.
