Why over-the-counter naloxone

In January, 2019, the FDA put out an unprecedented call for OTC Naloxone. Why? Because 130 Americans are dying daily from opioid overdoses and the antidote naloxone isn't on hand. But, it easily could be. And, we are answering that call for OTC Naloxone. Over 35 million (yes, that's 10 percent of the population) is at risk of an opioid overdose. There is an urgent need and we are proud to play a role in addressing this aspect of the opioid crisis to limit needless overdose deaths.
