Life-Saving Opioid Antidote Now Available Online

Last week, Texas began offering Naloxone, an opioid antagonist, for purchase online. Experts say the drug reverses opioid overdoses and is not addictive.

The website, naloxoneexchange.com, is the brainchild of James Lott, 33, a Chicago pharmacist who hoped removing the stigma from the purchase and increasing accessibility online would allow anyone to prepare for the worst.

"We're focused on social benefit," Lott said. "This is going to change lives and expand access to people all over the country."

Texas is a sort of pilot state for Fiduscript's Naloxone Exchange, which intends to launch in other states in a few months, though there is no hard timeline yet, Lott said.
