FDA Approves New Auto-Injector to Reverse Opioid Overdose

April 22, 2014

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a prescription treatment that can be used by family members or caregivers to treat a person known or suspected to have had an opioid overdose.

Evzio (naloxone hydrochloride injection) rapidly delivers a single dose of the drug naloxone via a hand-held auto-injector that can be carried in a pocket or stored in a medicine cabinet.

It is intended for the emergency treatment of known or suspected opioid overdose, characterized by decreased breathing or heart rates, or loss of consciousness.
