    I was given narcan by paramedics after having an insulin reaction! I had a very rare reaction to it in which I became very combative and delerious and felt as if I were in a space ship. I do not have too many memories about the situation but what I do remember is not good. Get this; I am not even on any narcotics and that's what they give the drug for in the first place!
