Health officials are now working to increase public access to the overdose reversal drug naloxone, commonly known as Narcan. Without a prescription, Narcan can cost over $ 100 at the pharmacy, but now a hospital in New Orleans is giving out the life-saving drug for free.
“This drug is not new,” ha detto il dott. Peter DeBlieux with University Medical Center New Orleans. “Discovering ways to effectively get it in the hands of patients and their loved ones is new.”
