The FDA has granted approval for the non-prescription use
of Narcan, a 4mg naloxone hydrochloride nasal spray, making it the first of its kind.
Naloxone is a medication commonly used to quickly reverse
the effects of opioid overdose, and is considered the standard treatment for such cases
With this approval, Narcan can now be sold directly to consumers
without a prescription, in locations such as drug stores
convenience stores, grocery stores, and gas stations, as well as online
thereby providing easier access to life-saving
medication to reverse opioid overdose.
