with TAB morphine overdose, how long after ingestion might the NARCAN be effective? and how long do you have to watch the patient after to make sure they are fine?
Hello-Narcan is effective for 1-2 hours after the dose, and this depends on the actual opioid taken, and how much of it was taken.So in overdoses where a longer acting medication was taken, you may have to watch the patient for several hours and redose the narcan medication if it wears off faster than the opioid medication.Many people require a second dose of narcan after a couple of hours, and rarely some people will need a third dose.

How long might TAB Morphine overdose affect the patient?

The effects of the morphine could last from 6-12 hours, and that is why some people may need additional doses of narcan as the effects of the morphine can last longer than the antidote of narcan.
