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 more
