Abstract

The general awareness about poisoning is relatively low among Indian physicians owing to various reasons. The situation is beginning to improve with the advent of poison information centres being established in major hospitals, and more emphasis being advised by the Medical Council of India in the undergraduate medical curriculum on Toxicology. Several antidotes with proven efficacy against common poisons have recently been introduced into India, one of which is naloxone, the antidote of choice for opiates. Considering its value in this regard as well as its other applications, this paper analyses its tremendous potential in the clinical scenario.
