Naloxone and Covid-19 – click on the above link to drugs.ie for more information:

“Protect your personal safety. Those who will use naloxone in response to an overdose situation should be extra cautious during this time to protect themselves and others. As we continue to learn more about the virus and how it is transmitted, people should consider the use of intramuscular naloxone (injection) as an alternative to intranasal administration during this time.

If administering naloxone , it is recommended that personal protective equipment (PPE) is worn. If naloxone is used, please ensure the correct disposal is in place and items are put in a sharps bin, as per normal practice. It is recommended that intranasal products are sealed in bags in advance of disposal in sharps bin”.
