Narcan Expiration Dates
In 2021, the FDA approved the extension of the shelf life of Narcan (naloxone HCL) Nasal Spray from 24 to 36 months. However, all products are still subject to the expiration dating printed on its specific package.
Pharmacy Dispensing Resources
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.
More information on this program can be found here.
The following posters are available for download to help promote the availability of free naloxone in Iowa.
