Gov. Nathan Deal Expands Access To Drug To Help Fight Opioid Epidemic

Gov. Nathan Deal has provided an additional tool that will expand access to a life-saving drug to stem the tide of the epioid epidemic. In a request to the Georgia Pharmacy Board, Deal asked that naloxone, an emergency drug used to reverse opioid overdoses, be removed from the dangerous drug list and rescheduled as a Schedule V exempt drug. The Georgia Board of Pharmacy approved the emergency rule to remove naloxone. At the same time, Deal directed the Department of Public Health (DPH) to issue a standing order to allow naloxone to be dispensed over-the-counter by pharmacists across the state.

“Naloxone is a powerful weapon in the ght against the increasing epidemic of opioid abuse that poses a threat to public health in Georgia,” said DPH Commissioner Brenda Fitzgerald, M.D. “This decisive action to make this drug accessible to everyone in a position to assist persons at risk of overdose will save countless lives.”
