Pharmacies in California Selling Naloxone

If you have any difficulty purchasing naloxone in your participating pharmacy, please call 1-800-SHOPCVS (1-800-746-7287) for assistance.

Walgreens announced this week that they are now dispensing naloxone, the drug that can reverse an opioid overdose, over the counter in 46 states. (If you have a prescription, you can buy it in any state.) CVS offers it over the counter in 43 states.

Which states, though? CVS has a list: you still need a prescription in Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Wyoming. According to a spokesperson, all of their stores stock it or can order it for the next business day.
