Opioid Overdose Reversal Medication

Naloxone is a life-saving medication that can reverse an overdose from opioids, including heroin, fentanyl, and prescription opioid medications. Naloxone is safe and effective.

Naloxone is available at many Texas pharmacies without a prescription. For example, naloxone is dispensed at all CVS Pharmacy and Walgreens locations.
