Naloxon Hydrochloride

Were you looking for information about Naloxone? Naloxon hydrochloride is a common misspelling of naloxone hydrochloride.
 
Naloxone hydrochloride (Narcan®) is approved to:
 
  • Reverse the effects of opioids
  • Diagnose a suspected opioid overdose
  • Increase blood pressure in people with septic shock.
 
The drug works by competing with opioids for opioid receptors. Naloxone produces no effects when it binds to opioid receptors. However, it prevents other opioid medicines from also binding to the receptors, thus blocking their effects.
