Bend, OR -- A recent cluster of heroin overdoses has Deschutes County Health Services warning the public about an increased risk of heroin overdoses. Health care providers report the heroin may be laced with synthetic fentanyl.
Patients seen last week were very ill and required  unusually high doses Naloxone ... also known as Narcan ... to be stabilized. Naloxone is a medication that was designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose. Health offciials say however, the effects of naloxone are temporary and the person still need medical attention because after the medication wears out, the overdose victim may fall back into a coma.
