Ensure your safety in emergency situations with the essential life-saving tool, Naloxone, also known as Narcan. This medication is a crucial inclusion in your emergency kit as it acts swiftly in cases of opioid overdose or suspected overdose. An opioid may be a prescription narcotic pain reliever like hydrocodone, hydromorphone, morphine, oxycodone, or illicit drugs like heroin and fentanyl.

Naloxone’s potency lies in its ability to reverse an overdose, granting invaluable time for emergency medical teams to reach the scene and offer further aid. For households with prescription narcotics, it is imperative to have Naloxone on hand, as accidental overdoses are unpredictable.

Over 107,000 Americans died of overdoses in 2022, and at least 932,000 Americans have died of overdose since 1999. Naloxone is a very important step when assisting someone who is experiencing an overdose.  Naloxone is SAFE; it will not harm someone even if you administer it, and they are not overdosing on an opioid.

Signs of an overdose may include:

“Naloxone can be given safely to people of all ages, from infants to older adults. This includes an adolescent or young adult who may have unintentionally taken an opioid.

During an overdose, a person’s breathing can be dangerously slowed or stopped, causing brain damage or death. It’s important to recognize the signs and act fast, even before emergency workers arrive.

If you think that someone is overdosing, please give them naloxone.” –

  • Small, constricted “pinpoint pupils”
  • Falling asleep or loss of consciousness
  • Limp body
  • Slow, shallow breathing
  • Choking or gurgling sounds
  • Cold and/or clammy skin
  • Discolored skin (especially in lips and nails)

When you choose to order Naloxone, you can potentially save a life.
