How to use NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR

Step 1

Pull NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR from the outer case.

Do not go to Step 2 (Do not remove the Red safety guard) until you are ready to use NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR. If you are not ready to use NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR, put it back in the outer case for later use.

Step 2

Pull off the Red safety guard.

To reduce the chance of an accidental injection, do not touch the Black base of the auto-injector, which is where the needle comes out. If an accidental injection happens, get medical help right away.

Note: The Red safety guard is made to fit tightly. Pull firmly to remove. Do not replace the Red safety guard after it is removed.

Step 3

Place the Black end of NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR against the outer thigh, through clothing, if needed. Press firmly and hold in place for 5 seconds. If you give NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR to an infant less than 1 year old, pinch the middle of the outer thigh before you give NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR and continue to pinch while you give NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR.

Note: NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR makes a distinct sound (click and hiss) when it is pressed against the thigh. This is normal and means that NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR is working correctly. Keep NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR firmly pressed on the thigh for 5 seconds after you hear the click and hiss sound. The needle will inject and then retract back up into the NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR and is not visible after use.

Step 4

After using NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR, get emergency medical help right away. If symptoms return after an injection with NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR, an additional injection using another NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR may be needed. Give additional injections using a new NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR every 2 to 3 minutes and continue to closely watch the person until emergency help is received. NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR does not take the place of emergency medical care.

NALOXONE AUTO-INJECTOR cannot be reused. After use, place the auto-injector back into its outer case. Do not replace the Red safety guard.
