This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item


This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

General Information

Consumer Medicine Information


This leaflet contains information about Naloxone Hydrochloride Injection MIN-I-JET. Please read it carefully and keep it for future reference. The information in this leaflet is only a summary and is not intended to replace advice from your doctor. Please consult your doctor or pharmacist if you have any comments or questions. WHAT IS NALOXONE? Naloxone is a medicine which, when injected, reverses the effect of opium-like substances such as morphine, heroin and codeine. It acts very quickly and can be a life saving measure in those people who have received an overdose of a narcotic drug. WHEN IS NALOXONE USED? Naloxone is used in any situation where it is necessary to reverse the effects of opium and its derivatives, such as morphine, heroin and codeine. Naloxone is used after surgical operations when powerful pain killers have been given and are no longer required when the operation is over. Naloxone is the standard treatment for those who have received an overdose of heroin or similar drugs. Naloxone acts very quickly and is often lifesaving in such cases. It is also used in new-born infants whose mothers have received opium-like drugs. As naloxone is only used in medical emergencies, injection may be given by paramedical personnel such as ambulance or nursing staff. WHO SHOULD NOT HAVE NALOXONE INJECTIONS? Those who are known to have had severe reactions to naloxone injections. BEFORE YOU HAVE A NALOXONE INJECTION If you are conscious, you should tell your doctor if you:
have ever had an allergic reaction to naloxone
are a drug addict
are using any drugs and what was the time and size of the last dose
have received naloxone previously
are suffering from any heart disease
have any other type of illness
are taking any medicines and what they are
are pregnant
are breast feeding


As with any medicine, some side effects may occur.

Nausea, vomiting, sweating and palpitations sometimes occur after an injection of naloxone, particularly if it is given after an anaesthetic. When naloxone is given to someone who has taken an overdose of heroin or similar drug, it can produce overbreathing and tremor. On rare occasions the treated person has had a fit but this may not have been due to the naloxone. People who have been given naloxone after having received large doses of heroin or similar drugs may suffer the severe problems associated with sudden drug withdrawal. Patients with heart disease can sometimes be made worse following naloxone. Alterations in blood pressure and abnormal heart rhythms have occurred. Always tell your doctor if you have any unpleasant effects after receiving a Naloxone Hydrochloride Injection MIN-I-JET. THE DOSE OF NALOXONE The dose varies depending on the reason for which it is being used and the age of the patient. Adults who have had an overdose of heroin or related drugs, the usual starting dose is 0.4 to 2.0 mg given into a vein. This can be repeated until 10 mg has been given. If a vein is not available, the injection can be given into a muscle or under the skin. Adults recovering from an anaesthetic usually receive 0.2 mg every few minutes until the desired effect is obtained. Children: the usual dose is 0.01 mg per kg bodyweight which can be increased to 0.1 mg per kg. Newborn babies usually receive 0.01 mg per kg bodyweight. OVERDOSE At large doses of Naloxone the following effects have been reported: seizures, changes in blood pressure, slow heart beat, irritability, anxiety, changes in mood, difficulty concentrating, lack of appetite, dizziness, heaviness, sweating, nausea and stomach aches. Severe withdrawal symptoms can be produced in drug addicts if too much naloxone is used. Contact the Poisons Information Centre on 131 126 for advice on overdose management.
