"I have Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis and was on opioids for chronic pain. Was on a high dosage for multiple years. I overdosed and was taken to a local ER. They administered IV Narcan to reverse the opioids. It was the most horrifying experience I've ever had. It felt like being continuously electrocuted. My body felt on fire. I pleaded for someone to make it stop but was ignored. I too, like someone else posted would rather die than to ever feel that excruciating pain again. The Narcan also caused permanent effects on my body. Because stress to the body causes MS symptoms to increase, my disease has progressed significantly. It left me unable to function. I didn't deserve to end up like this."
"It has saved my life 3 times in the ER. If it would have not been for this medicine I would have died a junky and would not of had the chance to change my life for the better. Thank you for this medicine."
"I am a cancer patient and take strong pain meds. One night I had accidently taken other sensitive type meds and possibly second dose of narcotic pain meds. My daughter called an ambulance when she couldn't keep me awake. When I got to ER, my pulse was 30 and dropping at time as low as 20. I could of and probably should of gone into cardiac arrest. I was administered this medicine and it literally saved my life. I have been battling a terminal but treatable cancer for 3 years, Multiple Myeloma. I fight everyday to stay healthy so I can be here for my kids and grandkids. I don't want to lose my life over something avoidable like an accidental overdose!"
