In case of overdose,

use naloxone and call 911

Naloxone is safe to use on people of all ages, including infants and elders. People who are physically dependent on opioids can have withdrawal symptoms after naloxone has been administered. These withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable, but withdrawal from opioids is rarely fatal.

The risk of death due to opioid overdose is very high, so it is important to administer naloxone to anyone you suspect might be overdosing. After receiving naloxone, the person whose overdose was reversed might become irritable and experience nausea, sweating, vomiting, tremors, anxiety and irritability. The two key steps in responding to overdose are administering naloxone and calling 911 so that anyone who overdosed receives medical attention.
