Medicine For Narcan Overdose
Hi I'm a 25 year old male from Texas. I recently had an overdose and was revived with narcan (naloxone). Does narcan (naloxone) make you fail a UA for bupornephrine?
No: “Does naloxone cause a positive urine opiate screen?” “Although the metabolites of naloxone hydrochloride are similar in structure to oxymorphone and are excreted in human urine for several days, naloxone was not associated with a positive enzymatic urine screen for opiates.” REF: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7978599 ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Probably not: Narcan (naloxone) will reverse respiratory arrest. This means that if a person has stopped breathing due to an overdose of Oxycontin or heroin, for example, Narcan (naloxone) can bring back the drive to breathe. If the person doesn't breathe for a long time, though, the heart will stop, which is called cardiac arrest, due to lack of oxygen. Narcan (naloxone) won't fix that. This is why narcotic abuse is so dangerous. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not completely: Narcan (naloxone) can reverse a narcotic overdose to a point. If someone takes a narcotic overdose, and it is enough to stop breathing, the lack of oxygen and rise in carbon dioxide can cause the heart to stop ( cardiac arrest) at that point simply reversing the effect of the narcotic that started the process is not enough, one take additional measures to restore a pulse and resuscitate the patient. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Unclear: Usually breathing stops with opiate overdose and then cardiac arrest occurs. Reversing with Narcan (naloxone) may allow breathing to restart, but the cardiac arrest would still have to be treated with CPR and usual measures. Depending on the duration of cardiac arrest attempts may or may not be successful, thus the uncertainty. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it possible for Narcan (naloxone) to reverse opiate overdose once a cardiac arrest has occurred?
Yes: It is indeed possible. In fact, this is precisely the point of the medication. Once a cardiac arrest has begun, however, removing the effect of the opiate does not necessarily guarantee the end of the cardiac arrest. Often, additional treatment is required. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
