Naloxone is a medication designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose. It is an opioid antagonist—meaning that it binds to opioid receptors and can reverse and block the effects of other opioids. It can very quickly restore normal respiration to a person whose breathing has slowed or stopped as a result of overdosing with heroin or prescription opioid pain medications.




How is naloxone given?


There are three FDA-approved formulations of naloxone:

Injectable (professional training required)

Injectable naloxone vials are offered by Zion Compounding Pharmacy now.

Prefilled syringes Naloxone 2mg / 2 ml, # 2 syringes

Prepackaged Nasal Spray

Nasal Spray is a prefilled, needle-free device that requires no assembly and is sprayed into one nostril while patients lay on their back.

Nasal Spray is now available at Zion Pharmacy, which allows for Naloxone to be sprayed into the nose. Now friends, family members, and others in the community may give the auto-injector and nasal spray formulation of Naloxone to someone who has overdosed.

 Nasal Spray 4 mg, # 2


What dose can be provided?

The dose varies depending on the formulation, and sometimes more than one dose is needed to help the person start breathing again.

What precautions are needed when giving Naloxone?

People who are given Naloxone should be observed constantly until emergency care arrives and for at least 2 hours by medical personnel after the last dose of Naloxone to make sure breathing does not slow or stop.

What are the side effects of Naloxone?

Naloxone is an extremely safe medication that only has a noticeable effect in people with opioids in their systems. Naloxone can (but does not always) cause withdrawal symptoms which may be uncomfortable, but are not life-threatening; on the other hand, opioid overdose is extremely life-threatening. Withdrawal symptoms may include headache, changes in blood pressure, rapid heart rate, sweating, nausea, vomiting, and tremors.
