NALOXONE

Information for patients
Drug Information Naloxone belongs to a group of medicines called “opioid antagonists.” It counteracts strong painkillers (opiates). Naloxone is used to restore the body’s breathing if it has been affected by strong painkillers (usually opioids such as morphine, heroin, methadone etc.) which may have been given during an operation for example. It is also used for the same reason after an overdose of these drugs has been taken, or when an overdose of opioids is suspected. As Naloxone is only used in medical emergencies, the injection will be given by a doctor or nurse in a hospital.
