(St. Paul, MN)  —  Minnesota overdose awareness and prevention nonprofits are expressing support for a proposal that would make an opioid overdose reversal drug available over the counter.  The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is considering whether to make Narcan, a brand-name naloxone nasal spray, a nonprescription drug.  The move would allow the public to purchase it from locations such as gas stations, grocery stores, and vending machines.  FDA officials say a major concern would be the packaging and label instructions for administering the drug.
