What is Naloxone?
Naloxone is a medicine that can save lives of people who have overdosed on pain pills (opioid drugs like Percocet/Vicodin/OxyContin)
- Why do I need it?
- Opioid pain pills can slow your breathing, and if you take too many pills at once, it can stop your breathing completely.
- Naloxone can completely reverse this and bring someone back after his or her breathing has stopped.
Will my insurance cover it?
- Most insurances will cover it, including Medicaid.
- If you or a family member takes pain pills, ask the pharmacist about getting some Naloxone for your family today!
