Narcan - also called naloxone - is a medicine that may reverse an overdose caused by an opioid drug (Percocet, Vicodin, morphine, Demerol, heroin, Oxycontin). Narcan blocks the effect of the opioid on the brain and can help a person start breathing again. Narcan is an emergency medicine that may reverse the effects of an opioid, however additional medical care is needed - call 911 immediately. Narcan does not reverse overdoses caused by non-opioid drugs like cocaine, alcohol, methamphetamines
