What happens after Narcan is administered?

Narcan allows the individual to begin breathing again, and he/she should wake up. If the individual does not wake up after the first dose, administer the second dose after 2-3 minutes

There is a possibility that the individual may wake up for 30-40 minutes, but then become unconscious again. If this occurs, administer the second dose.

Be aware that the individual may become angry or violent when waking up.
