Health workers should provide the consumer information sheet – Nyxoid® to clients receiving Nyxoid®.
This information is specifically for the opioid overdose response and take home naloxone intervention.
If person is not recovering, repeat naloxone sprays every 2 to 3 minutes. Commence CPR if you know how. Continue until ambulance arrives.
Stay until the ambulance comes: After using Nyxoid® intranasal naloxone spray, keep the devices and hand to the ambulance crew so that they know it has been administered..
Naloxone is used to reverse opioid overdose (e.g. heroin, morphine, oxycodone, methadone). It takes two to five minutes to start working and effects last about 30-90 minutes.
