Carry Opioid Antidote Naloxone – US Surgeon General Tells Americans | The Precision

The United States surgeon general, Jerome Adams issued an advisory Thursday recommending that more Americans carry the opioid overdose-reversing drug, naloxone. 
The drug, commonly known as Narcan, can very quickly
restore normal breathing in someone suspected of overdosing on opioids,
including heroin and prescription pain medications.

Dr. Adams emphasized that “knowing how to use
naloxone and keeping it within reach can save a life.” To make his
point, Adams relied on a rarely used tool: the surgeon general’s
advisory. The last such advisory was issued more than a decade ago and
focused on drinking during pregnancy. (CNN)
