Wikipedia:  “Marshmallow probably first came into being as a medicinal substance, since the mucilaginous extracts come from the root of the marshmallow plant, Althaea officinalis, which was used as a remedy for sore throats.”

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my tiny little corner of the internet.

Does Narcan kill more people than it saves?

Prince was unconscious when his bodyguard carried him down the steps of his private jet after it made an emergency landing in Moline, Ill., just days before the superstar collapsed and died at Paisley Park in Chanhassen…

Several sources with direct knowledge of the death investigation, however, have told the Star Tribune that paramedics gave Prince a shot of the opioid antidote Narcan, and that Prince had overdosed on an opioid…

It wasn’t just the chronic pain and the opioids that killed Prince, it was also Narcan.

For instance, to the uninformed, it is inconceivable that someone who nearly died from a drug would run out that very same day and buy more of it. Narcan works by binding to opioid receptors, blocking the effect of narcotics like heroin. In drug users with a physical dependency, it also has the effect of causing severe withdrawal symptoms. This all but guarantees that the first thing a user will think of after their overdose is reversed is getting another fix…

“It’s snaps you right out, but now you’re sick,” she said. Tammy explained how EMTs took her to a nearby hospital for treatment, but her withdrawal symptoms were so bad she ran from the vehicle when it reached its destination. She says she tried shooting up to feel better but the naloxone in her system blocked the heroin.

“You could do 30 bags and you’re not going to feel nothing for hours,” she said…

Prince took more painkillers because his pain never stopped.

The government is pushing the use of Narcan, but they don’t understand what the consequences will be, nor is the addiction industry prepared for these consequences. Does this drug kill more people than it saves?
