Naloxone is a medication that can temporarily stop poisoning caused by opioid drugs like heroin, morphine, fentanyl, methadone, codeine, and other drugs that are unknowingly contaminated with opioids. Recognizing opioid poisoning symptoms, calling 911, and administering naloxone quickly can prevent illness.
