U.S. Sens. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Gary Peters (D-MI) penned a letter to the Dept. of Health and Human Services, urging the agency to demand that manufacturers lower the price of the opioid overdose reversal drug, naloxone.
The lawmakers wrote that the price of naloxone has climbed dramatically since it was first approved by the FDA decades ago – a two-pack of the drug’s nasal spray formulation, Narcan, costs $150, according to the senators.
