Narcan

Narcan is for opiates not barbiturates. Though quite often an opiate is in the mix of a multi drug or poly pharmacy overdose. Narcan has no effect whatsoever on barbiturates (or benzodiazepines)

But I'll bet the OP has already turned in her homework paper. Oh, well-- we learn in different ways, and getting a question wrong on a homework sheet and going to the instructor to say that she got the right answer on ... an anonymous internet board with the primary purpose of entertainment (yep, you can look it up) is sure to teach her something, alright.

And they wonder why we ask them to look it up first and then we're happy to help them understand better. Oy.:rolleyes:
