Think of Naloxone as a Seat Belt for ANY Opioid Patient
A greater focus on naloxone will bring some common myths to light.
MYTH: Naloxone is only for people who abuse opioids. Opioid overdose can happen to ANYONE taking an opioid. Even the most careful patient can forget if a dose was taken...and accidentally take more.
Help patients think of naloxone like a seat belt. Most people won't need it...but it's there if they ever do, and it can save their lives.
