Nasal Spray for Opioid Overdoses to be Sold for “Less than $50”

The nasal spray that reverses opioid overdoses will sell for “less than $50” per kit, the manufacturer announced Thursday, spurring criticism that the price of the over-the-counter medication should be even lower. The announcement by Opiant Pharmaceuticals came after the US government awarded the company a $4.6m contract to develop the spray. The congressman who initiated the funding deal said the price was too high and demanded that the company lower it. The spray, called Narcan, is sprayed into the nose and blocks the effects of opioids, including drowsiness and slowed breathing.
