From: Emergent BioSolutions

The 4-mg naloxone hydrochloride nasal spray (Narcan; Emergent BioSolutions) is the first formulation of naloxone (which rapidly reverses an opioid overdose) to be approved by the FDA for purchase without prescription. The approval allows the product to be sold directly to consumers online and in grocery stores, convenience stores, gas stations, and pharmacies. This decision follows recommendations from 2 panels of FDA advisers, who voted unanimously in favor of OTC naloxone.
