Watch Ingredients and Supplies Closely When Preparing Naloxone Kits

You'll see more Rxs for naloxone (Evzio, etc)...due to the high number of prescription opioid and heroin overdoses.

Rx opioids are becoming harder to get due to more limited prescribing...higher cost...state Rx monitoring programs...and abuse- deterrent products (OxyContin, etc) that are harder to snort or inject.

But some patients are migrating to heroin...including those who became dependent on legitimately prescribed opioids for chronic pain. Heroin is inexpensive, easy to inject, and easy to get in some areas.
