Walgreens to make overdose antidote Naloxone available in Pennsylvania without a prescription

Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. said it’s making the opioid antidote Naloxone available without a prescription in more than 120 pharmacies across Pennsylvania. Naloxone can be used in cases of heroin and other opioid overdoses, and is administered through a nasal spray or injection. Walgreens previously committed to making the antidote available without a prescription in 35 states and Washington D.C., and has since done so in New York, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Indiana and Ohio. The pharmacy chain will also be installing medication disposal kiosks in more than 500 locations in 40 states, including Pennsylvania, by later this year. They will allow people to rid themselves of unwanted and expired prescriptions. Walgreens shares are inactive in premarket trading, and down 11.6% for the past year. The S&P 500 is down 2.6% for the past 12 months.
