Can OTC Narcan Help Fight the Opioid Crisis?

Opioid overdoses killed more than 100,000 people in the US last year, more than traffic accidents and suicides combined. Fentanyl is a major culprit, often turning a planned recreational high into sudden death. Now Naloxone –the generic name for Narcan—is available over the counter.

Will the good drug stop the bad drug from killing people? And should you carry Narcan yourself? We’ll tell you what you need to know.

CareTalk is a weekly podcast that provides an incisive, no B.S. view of the US healthcare industry. Join co-hosts John Driscoll (President U.S. Healthcare and EVP, Walgreens Boots Alliance) and David Williams (President, Health Business Group) as they debate the latest in US healthcare news, business and policy.
