Naloxone (also known as Narcan) is an effective medication that has been used for 50 years to reverse an opioid overdose. Naloxone knocks the opioids off the opioid receptor sites in the brain, which restores a person’s breathing within seconds. Its only side effect is to induce immediate opioid withdrawal and eliminate the euphoric feeling of opioids, which can be extremely uncomfortable for someone who who recently consumed opioids. It has no effect on a person who has not recently consumed opioids.
They are the same thing! Naloxone is the generic name and Narcan is a brand of naloxone. Kind of like tissue vs. kleenex or bandage vs. band-aid.
Naloxone carries an expiration date, but that doesn’t mean you should get rid of it. Research is showing that naloxone degrades very slowly and can still work many years after its expiration date. Check out the research compiled by our friends at NEXT Distro. If you would like to donate your expired naloxone to SPW, contact us.
Naloxone is legal to carry. Under A.R.S 36-2266 a pharmacist may legally dispense naloxone to anyone who is likely to witness an overdose. Under A.R.S. 36-2267, anyone administering naloxone in good faith is protected from a civil suit and is not liable for any damages.
Nope! Arizona has a standing order, which is basically a document that says any pharmacist can give anyone in Arizona naloxone without needing an individual prescription.
