According to this new study, researchers have found that a concentrated 2mg intranasal naloxone spray delivers naloxone as effectively, over the critical first 15 minutes, as the standard 0.4mg intramuscular (IM) naloxone injection.

It should therefore be highly effective in reversing opioid overdose. This is published by the scientific journal Addiction.
