Naloxone is a medication that is used as an antidote for opioid overdose. In Québec, naloxone is available free of charge and without a prescription at any pharmacy and in some health care settings.
However, some pharmacies order naloxone when someone asks for it. They can provide it within 24 to 48 hours. Other pharmacies keep the medication in stock and can give it to you right away at any time.
Also, some community organizations are authorized to provide naloxone to people who use drugs who might find it difficult to get to a pharmacy.
