Having lost count of all the funerals I have attended in just the past 5 years due to overdoses, I would care to err on the side of saving lives rather than fear a missed administration. This should be made available to all families who have a medically identified addict in their households. While some die on their first overdose, many have a history of overdoses on file. To stand by and watch someone die is excruciating, and to know that something so simple could reverse such a fate also preserves the loved ones from a sentence of guilt in feeling helpless in those instances.

From research I have done, Naxolone will do nothing if injected into a person who is not having an opiate overdose, so I support prescriptions for families of addicts.

I think this is a great idea! This was done to me and others i know and has saved many lives!! I agree 100% if you have an opiate addict in your home then this is the best thing to have there for the worst case scenario happenng. Keep up the good work! I wish you all the best!

Suzanne, I could not DISAGREE with you more! Naloxone is an absolute NO BRAINER. Many "lay people" are saving lives every single day with this medication. It is BASIC first aid. You CANNOT harm someone with Naloxone. You could inject with me with it right now and it would do nothing. The ONLY time it works is if someone has an opiate in there system. In that case seconds and minutes matter ! Every minute you wait for help their brain is being damaged . Would you not do CPR on someone who is without a heartbeat. Would you not do the Heimlich on someone choking. WHY would you not want to give a simple med to someone not BREATHING. Because I made the choice to get the training and have this medication in my home my sons life was saved on Christmas Eve 2013. Without the med he would be DEAD. My precious son would be gone. He is now clean since that day, working, has a beautiful girlfriend and can be a father to his daughter. Naloxone is an absolute MUST have for those with a loved one with an opiate addiction. A MUST!

So you are saying that people that have to inject themselves with epinephrine should not do so because they are not licensed professionals? Trained is trained..point blank...

Sorry, I disagree! Although I'm all for saving lives, I believe that a "trained", well-meaning, and compassionate lay-person person could actually harm the rest of society. A "trained" person could easily mis-diagnose a person appearing to be having a drug overdose. Think we need to keep Naloxone in the hands of those educated and licensed in drug administration.
