Talwin Nx Overdose

If someone takes too much Talwin Nx (pentazocine/naloxone), it may cause potentially serious problems, such as irregular breathing, hallucinations, or high blood pressure. Make sure to seek immediate medical treatment if you believe you have overdosed on Talwin Nx. A healthcare provider may treat you by administering certain medications, pumping the stomach, and providing supportive care.

Can You Take Too Much Talwin Nx?

Talwin® Nx (pentazocine/naloxone) is a prescription medication used to treat moderate-to-severe pain. It comes as a tablet that is taken by mouth. As with most medications, it is possible to use too much Talwin Nx. An overdose with this medication can be quite dangerous. 
 
The specific effects of an overdose can vary, depending on a number of factors, including the Talwin Nx dosage and whether it was taken with any other medications or substances.
 

Symptoms of an Overdose

Symptoms of a Talwin Nx overdose may include:
   
The symptoms of a Talwin Nx overdose may be more severe if the medication is taken in combination with other medications or substances that cause central nervous system depression, such as alcohol or other medications that cause sedation.
 
In addition, crushing and injecting Talwin Nx can be particularly dangerous. Talwin Nx contains naloxone, which binds to opioid receptors and blocks the action of opioids in the body. This could cause severe, potentially life-threatening withdrawal symptoms if Talwin Nx is injected alone or in combination with other opioid medications.
