  • Naloxone Dispensing Guidance for Pharmacists
    On May 2, 2013, Governor Christie signed into law the Overdose Prevention Act (P.L. 2013, c. 46, N.J.S.A. 254:6J-1 et seq.) One of the purposes of the law is to reduce the number of opioid overdose deaths by making Naloxone, an opioid antidote, more widely available and accessible. The statute allows health care professionals to prescribe or dispense Naloxone, or similarly acting drugs, not only to patients who may be in danger of overdosing, but also to first responders, family members, caregivers, or peers who are not at risk for an opioid overdose but who, "in the judgment of a physician, may be in a position to assist another individual during an overdose." While the Board works to draft regulations to implement this new law, they have developed a Guidance document to assist pharmacists in complying with this new law and existing regulations. Pharmacists are encouraged to review this information in it's entirety via the link below.
