Naloxone prescriptions can be filled at most pharmacies. Although the medication may not be available for same day pick up, it can often be ordered and available within a day or two. Visit Overdose Free PA for a database of participating pharmacies.
Family members and friends can access this medication by obtaining a prescription from their family doctor or by using the standing order written for the general public (PDF), issued by Rachel Levine, M.D., PA Physician General. (Please note that schools have a separate application process than the general public or EMS/Police agencies. See "For Schools" below for details.)
