According to the CDC, recognizing an opioid overdose can be difficult. When in doubt, treat the situation like an overdose—you could save a life. Do not leave the person alone and call 911 or seek medical care for the individual immediately. Signs may include any of the following:
- Small, constricted “pinpoint pupils”
- Falling asleep or loss of consciousness
- Slow, shallow breathing
- Choking or gurgling sounds
- Limp body
- Pale, blue, or cold skin
