New Bill Would Allow Pharmacists to Dispense Naltrexone

The Missouri House of Representatives is currently considering a bill to help fight the state’s ongoing opioid crisis. HB 2603 would allow pharmacists to sell and distribute naltrexone hydrochloride, a drug that helps stem the desire to use opioids or related substances and stave off relapse. HB 2603 builds on a 2016 bill that allows pharmacists to sell Narcan. Naltrexone aims to prevent opioid use altogether and mitigate the need for drugs like Narcan. HB 2603 passed committee in a 12-0 vote and continues on in the House for further consideration.
