Naloxone (Narcan) is a
medication designed to rapidly reverse an opioid overdose. It is an opioid
antagonist, meaning that it binds to receptors in the brain and can
block the effects of opioids. It can quickly restore normal
respiration to a person whose breathing has slowed or stopped due to overdosing
with an opioid such as heroin or prescription medications.
