Waukesha County's Plan to Fight the Opioid Crisis

 

Expired Naloxone

Naloxone has a shelf life of approximately 18-24 months. Do not throw your expired Naloxone in the trash or flush it down the drain. It is OK to give an overdose victim expired Naloxone if that is all that is available. You may need additional doses as a result of decreased potency. Monitor the victim carefully and use other evidence based approaches, such as rescue breathing and CPR, as needed until the person revives or additional medical help arrives.
