A new study from Michigan Medicine found that just 54% of Michigan pharmacies offer naloxone without requiring a prescription. A standing order for naloxone, commonly known as Narcan, was passed by the Michigan legislature in 2016, allowing any pharmacist to dispense the overdose reversal drug without a prescription for emergency use.
