Padagis Unveils the Initial Over-the-Counter Naloxone Nasal Spray Release in the United States

Thursday, August 10, 2023

Padagis LLC, a renowned provider of specialized pharmaceuticals, has introduced the very first over-the-counter (OTC) Naloxone HCl Nasal Spray in the United States. Naloxone is a medication designed to swiftly reverse the effects of opioid overdose, serving as a life-saving product that, until now, has solely been accessible through prescription.

PADAGIS® Naloxone HCl Nasal Spray, 4 mg, will be obtainable both in physical retail stores and from online retailers, enabling anyone to make a purchase without needing a prescription. This OTC variant contains the same active ingredient and dosage as the NARCAN® Naloxone HCl Nasal Spray, 4 mg.

Pamela Hoffman, President of Padagis, conveyed, "Padagis remains fully committed to combating the opioid overdose crisis and is thrilled to pioneer the availability of over-the-counter naloxone nasal spray in the U.S. We firmly believe that this marks a pivotal step in improving access to this product and in turn, helping to save lives throughout the nation."

It's important to note that NARCAN® is a registered trademark of Emergent Operations Ireland Limited. Both PADAGIS® Naloxone HCl Nasal Spray and NARCAN® HCl Nasal Spray are opioid antagonists indicated for emergency treatment in cases of known or suspected opioid overdose, characterized by symptoms of respiratory and/or central nervous system depression. However, it should be emphasized that PADAGIS® Naloxone HCl Nasal Spray is not a substitute for urgent medical care, and there might be instances where repeated dosing becomes necessary. Proper usage is crucial. In the 12-month period leading up to May 2023, NARCAN® Naloxone HCl Nasal Spray 4mg recorded an estimated $257 million in annual market sales based on IQVIA data.
