Naloxone Prescribing



Oregon Pharmacists Prescribing of Naloxone

During the 2017 Legislative Session, House Bill (HB) 3440 passed into law and was signed by Oregon Governor Kate Brown on August 8, 2017. This law removes special training requirement from statutes governing prescribing, dispensing and distributing naloxone. An individual will no longer be required to complete OHA approved training prior to a pharmacist prescribing and dispensing naloxone and the necessary supplies for administration.

During the 2016 Legislative Session, House Bill (HB) 4124 passed into law and was signed by Oregon Governor Kate Brown on April 4, 2016. The law is intended to increase access to the life-saving opiate overdose reversal drug, naloxone. The law permits pharmacists to prescribe unit-of-use naloxone and the necessary supplies for administration to a person or organization that conducts training, and to an individual who has completed an OHA approved training.
