Nasal Naloxone

See the below website for a summary of some recent evidence that indicates that naloxone administered through a nasal spray has the same effectivess in averting overdose death as compared to naloxone administered by needle (i.e. intramuscular injection).


PSI programs distributing naloxone should consider if switching to nasal sprays is a practical, affordable, acceptable option for their intervention sites.
