What is Naloxone? Naloxone is a drug that can temporarily reverse an opioid (such as Fentanyl) overdose, so long as it is given right away and followed up by emergency medical care. In other words: if you’re having an OD from opioid (such as Fentanyl), Naloxone can save your life.
Naloxone kits are available free of charge to anyone at risk of opioid overdose (i.e. current or previous users of opioids). If you get a kit at a community walk-in clinic or Pharmacy you do not need ID or a prescription.
