OPIOIDS

 

What are Opioids?

Opioids include drugs such as heroin and prescription pain medications such as morphine, codeine, methadone, oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percodan, Percocet), hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lortab, Norco), fentanyl (Duragesic, Fentora), hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo), and buprenorphine (Suboxone).

Why are pain medications and heroin dangerous?

They may stop your breathing if you take too much of them or if you take them with other  edications/drugs/alcohol or if you take your usual dose but have a bad chest cold, cough, sleep apnea, pneumonia, or lung disease.

What is Naloxone?

Naloxone (Narcan) is a cure for opioid overdose and you can get it without a prescription.

How do I use naloxone?

• It comes in a shot or a nasal spray

• If you think someone has taken too much pain medication or heroin, call 911 and follow the naloxone package instructions.
