What is Naloxone?

Naloxone is an FDA-approved prescription medication used for the treatment of known or suspected opioid overdose. Studies have shown Naloxone to be 75-100% efficacious at reversing symptoms of an opiate overdose when used correctly.


Why is it important to carry Naloxone?

According to, families and friends with loved ones who have a history of substance use disorder should keep Naloxone close by. Most states have policies to allow for more people to carry Naloxone with or without a prescription, and administer it to anyone suspected of overdose without any civil penalties.

Naloxone and Overdose FAQ's

When using the nasal formulation:

  1. Lay person flat on their back
  2. Insert Naloxone applicator into nostril
  3. Press firmly down onto applicator to ensure full dose is administered
  4. Turn person onto their side after giving the first dose
  5. Call 911 immediately for medical attention
  6. If the person requires another dose of Naloxone, spray new dose into the opposite nostril 2-3 minutes after the first dose


Other things to remember:

  • If you need to give someone a dose of Naloxone, keep a continuous watch on the person until medical attention arrives

According to, Naloxone comes in two FDA-approved forms: injectable and prepackaged nasal spray.


Injectable brands of naloxone are offered by different companies. The proper dose must be drawn up from a vial. Usually, it is injected with a needle into muscle, although healthcare providers might inject the medicine into the vein or under the skin.


Prepackaged Nasal Spray (generic naloxone, Narcan®, Kloxxado®), is an FDA-approved prefilled, needle-free device that requires no assembly and is sprayed into one nostril while the person lays on their back. This device can also be easier for loved ones and bystanders without formal training to use.

All formulations of naloxone are equally effective. The best formulation of Naloxone to purchase is the one that you can afford. Many insurance companies now cover Naloxone to allow for affordable co-pays.

One study showed that Narcan Nasal spray was easily administered by people never trained to use the medication. While training is recommended, many experts believe that Narcan Nasal Spray allows for the most likelihood for success in an emergency overdose.


You can walk in to your local pharmacy to purchase Naloxone. We recommend calling ahead of your visit to make sure they have the medication in stock.
