What is Narcan® (naloxone)?
Naloxone is a medicine that can quickly reverse an opioid overdose. Naloxone knocks opioids and heroin off the brain’s opioid receptors, reversing the effects of the opioid and allowing the person to breathe again.
What are opioids?
Opioids include many prescription pain relievers. Heroin, an illegal drug, is also an opioid. Fentanyl is a legally prescribed opioid that is also frequently produced illegally in the black market. Made from the opium poppy plant, or produced artificially to have a similar effect, all opioids affect the brain’s regions that produce feelings of reward. Opioids activate the brain’s opioid receptors and reduce pain by attaching to these receptors, reducing the perception of pain.
