In some states, you can get naloxone from any pharmacy. Like a flu shot, the pharmacist can write a prescription for the naloxone, so you do not need one from your doctor. Most insurances cover naloxone, so you should have a low or no copay. Some states are still rolling out naloxone access at pharmacies, which means that a pharmacy might need to order it for you or they might suggest you ask your health care provider for a prescription. Ask your pharmacist!
There are many websites available to help you find naloxone. You can search the internet for “naloxone in [your town here]”, visit a pharmacy, or ask your doctor.
You can also find naloxone at other locations, including many needle exchange programs and community organizations that work with people who use drugs.
