Breaking News: Narcan Shelf-Life Extended!
The FDA has approved the 36-month shelf-life after completing a comprehensive review of data which included all versions of Narcan. Since this study was conducted using all versions of Narcan, any product previously released with a 24-month shelf life can now be extended for an additional 12 months.
In July 2020, the IDPH and the Iowa Board of Pharmacy announced that community pharmacies in Iowa may begin to submit electronic claims for reimbursement of NARCAN nasal spray. Pharmacies will be reimbursed 100% of the drug cost + a $20 dispensing fee.
