Evzio (naloxone auto-injector) Approved to Reverse Opioid Overdose

FDA approved Evzio (naloxone hydrochloride injection), a prescription treatment that can be used by family members or caregivers to treat a person known or suspected to have had an opioid overdose. Evzio rapidly delivers a single dose of the drug naloxone via a hand-held auto-injector.

Evzio is the first auto-injector designed to deliver a dose of naloxone outside of a health care setting.
