FILE - The overdose-reversal drug Narcan is displayed during training for employees of the Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC), Dec. 4, 2018, in Philadelphia.

The approved nasal spray from Gaithersburg, Maryland-based Emergent BioSolutions is the best-known form of naloxone.

It can reverse overdoses of opioids, including street drugs such as heroin and fentanyl and prescription versions including oxycodone.

Other brands of naloxone and injectable forms will not yet be available over the counter, but they could be soon.

FDA Commissioner Robert Califf in a statement encouraged Emergent to make the drug available “at an affordable price.”.

Last month, an FDA expert panel voted to make the drug available over the counter, despite numerous errors in using the device reported in the company study.

Predictably, right-wing personalities immediately started falsely blaming trans people in general for the mass shooting that killed three young children and three adults.

Some people on the right have even framed the shooting as a holy war between Christians and trans people. »
