NYC ERs are seeing unusually high numbers of overdoses, a sure sign of heroin (or cocaine) cut with Fentanyl, an opioid approximately 100 times the potency of morphine.
Narcan is the drug of choice for reversing opioid overdose, and is available from any pharmacy – no prescription needed. Method of administration couldn’t be easier: it’s an intranasal spray, given like Afrin.
Carrying this with you might save someone’s life. See someone slumped over and not breathing? Give ‘em a squirt and watch them come back to life!
Handy tip: Watch from a distance, it works fast and they’re not happy when it kicks in.
It’s completely benign, so you’ll never have to worry about hurting them – besides, if they’re not breathing they’re already dead!
I wrapped up a 25 year-old in a body bag today.
If someone had given him Narcan he’d still be alive.
