Naloxone Hydrochloride Drug Information
Narcan is used to treat known or suspected opioid (narcotic) overdose. Serious overdose symptoms may include unusual sleepiness, unusual difficulty waking up, or breathing problems (ranging from slow/shallow breathing to no breathing). Other symptoms of overdose may include very small "pinpoint" pupils, slow heartbeat, or low blood pressure. If someone has serious overdose symptoms but you are not sure if he or she has overdosed, give Narcan right away anyway, since lasting slow/shallow breathing may cause permanent damage to the brain or death. Naloxone belongs to a class of drugs known as opioid antagonists. It works by blocking the effects of the opioid in the brain. Narcan may not work as well to block the effects of certain types of opioids (mixed agonist/antagonists such as buprenorphine, pentazocine). With these types of opioids, blocking may be incomplete or you may need a higher dose of naloxone. Treatment of opioid overdose should also include breathing treatment (such as oxygen given through tubes in the nose, mechanical ventilation, artificial respiration).
How to Use Narcan
Narcan is given by a health care professional. It may be injected into a vein, a muscle, or under the skin. If you are using Narcan at home, learn all preparation and usage instructions from your health care professional and the product package. Before using, check Narcan visually for particles or discoloration. If either is present, do not use the liquid. Learn how to store and discard medical supplies safely. The Dosage of Narcan is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. The effects of Narcan are rapid but not long-lasting. After giving naloxone, get medical help right away, even if the person wakes up. If symptoms return after giving an injection, give another naloxone injection every 2 to 3 minutes. Continue to closely watch the person until emergency help is received. Tell the healthcare professional that you have given an injection of naloxone.
Before using naloxone, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Narcan may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Narcan, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,heart problems (such as irregular heartbeat, previous heart attack). Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). During pregnancy, Narcan should be used only when clearly needed. It may cause opioid withdrawal in an unborn baby whose mother has been regularly taking an opioid. The doctor will carefully monitor both the pregnant woman and the unborn baby after Narcan is given. Ask your doctor for details. It is unknown if Narcan passes into breast milk. However, it is unlikely to harm a nursing infant. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval.
Narcan Side Effects
What are Narcan side effects?
Side effects are physical, mental or emotional symptoms which occur in addition to or outside of the desired effect of a therapeutic treatment such as an over-the-counter or prescribed drug or medication. Side effects from Narcan may occur at the beginning or at the end of treatment and may also depend on the length of time an individual remains on the treatment. Side effects, also known as adverse effects, are generally more likely to occur when starting treatment. Individuals may also experience side effects from Narcan as a result of an interaction with other medications.
Side Effects of Narcan
The side effects of Narcan may vary in number and intensity for many different reasons. Factors such as age, weight, gender and ethnicity may influence the side effects of Narcan. Also, an individual’s state of general physical health and seriousness of the disease or illness as well as an increase or decrease in dosage may lead to side effects. Further, side effects from Narcan may also occur as a result of an interaction with certain herbal supplements, foods or drinks.
Prescription drug side effects can be serious and may cause patients to stop the treatment. However, when side effects from the use of a prescription drug, such as Narcan, do occur a patient should consult their physician. A physician may prescribe an additional treatment in order to control the symptoms or an adjustment in the dosage may be made. In addition, changes to diet, exercise or other lifestyle activities may help to lessen the side effects of Narcan.
