Naloxone blocks or reverses the effects of opioid medication (sometimes called a narcotic), including extreme drowsiness, slowed breathing, or loss of consciousness.
Naloxone acts within minutes and its effects usually last up 45 minutes. Its duration of action will depend on how it was given (eg IM injection will last longer than IV injection) and how much was given. Naloxone has a half life of 1 to 1 1/2 hours (this is the time it takes the body to clear the plasma of the drug by half).
