How Do I Administer Naloxone?
The most common form of naloxone available is a nasal spray. Similar to a saline solution for allergies, naloxone is sprayed up the nostril in either side of the nose. If you take opioids, make sure to tell loved ones, friends, or roommates where it is stored and how to use it as you cannot administer it to yourself while overdosing. Remind them to call 911 immediately, even if the person wakes up, as medical attention is still required. The Illinois Good Samaritan Law protects those overdosing and the ones who help.
