What is Narcan?
Narcan, also known as Naloxone, is a medication that is used to reverse or reduce the effects of a known or suspected opioid overdose. Narcan is used in people of all ages if opioid overdose happens or has possibly happened. Narcan is usually given by a caregiver or loved one if they think opioid overdose has occurred. Narcan comes in a box containing two nasal spray devices. Each nasal spray device contains one 4-mg dose.
