Common (1% to 10%): Tachycardia, hypotension, hypertension

Uncommon (0.1% to 1%): Arrhythmia, bradycardia

Rare (less than 0.1%): Fibrillation, cardiac arrest

Frequency not reported: Left ventricular failure, flushing

In postoperative patients, many of whom had cardiovascular disease, the following cardiovascular side effects have been reported: hypotension, hypertension, atrial and ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, left ventricular failure, and cardiac arrest. Death, coma, and encephalopathy have been reported as sequelae of these events.

Nervous system

Death, coma, and encephalopathy have been reported as a result of abrupt postoperative reversal of opioid depression, primarily in patients with preexisting cardiovascular disorders or in those who received other drugs with similar adverse cardiovascular effects.

Very rare (less than 0.01%): Pulmonary edema

Frequency not reported: Dyspnea, respiratory depression, hypoxia, nasal dryness, nasal edema, nasal congestion, nasal inflammation

Nasal dryness, nasal edema, nasal congestion, and nasal inflammation were the most common adverse reactions reported in clinical trials with naloxone nasal spray.
