Are you taking opioids?

If you are taking opioids chronically you may need a prescription of Naloxone as a rescue medication.   Opioid overdoses are unfortunately a frequent and increasing cause of death in the US.  

Although your team at Allpria Healthcare tailors your medications to your condition and takes every effortto minimize the risks, the risk of overdose is not zero.    Naloxone is provided as a kit to be used by someone around you in the case of accidental overdose. Two of the most common ways that naloxone is administered are intranasally (nasal spray) and the auto-injector.  Naloxone is available under the names of “naloxone,” an injectable that, with attachments can also be used as a nasal spray; “NARCAN,” an already assembled and easy to administer nasal spray; and, finally “EVZO,” a prefilled auto-injector. If you cannot be awakened or stop breathing after taking opioids, naloxone can reverse the effects of opioids and saveyour life.   

How does it work?   

It stops or reverses the effects of an opioid overdose and restores breathing within two (2) to eight (8) minutes. The naloxone effect lasts from 20 to 90 minutes, and can be safely re-administered as indicated. Naloxone has an annual expiration date so if yours is more than a year old, make an appointment today for a new prescription.
