Narcan Nasal Spray (Naloxone)
What is Narcan?
Narcan is prescription medication used to reverse the effects of a known or suspected opioid overdose, evident by emergency signs of breathing problems and severe sleepiness, or not being able to respond.
Family members, caregivers, friends, or bystanders, may use Narcan to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose until emergency assistance can arrive. Emergency services are still required after administering Narcan and restoring breathing.
