Nah-LOX-one. Most everyone I know just calls it by the trade name Narcan. You can look it up in any drug guide. You might visit your local health department and ask how paramedics and law enforcement give it (there are different ways) You might also live in a state that does not require a RX and can carry it.

You need to be REALLY careful- there have been verified reports of first responders and ER staff needing to be given it from touching the high potency fentanyl that heroin is now mixed with in some areas. Bad BAD stuff,
