Reported shortage of non-FDA approved improvised nasal naloxone kits.
November 4, 2016
Adapt Pharma has received multiple reports of a potential shortage of non-FDA approved improvised nasal naloxone kits. This issue reportedly arises because of the recently announced Urgent Medical Device Recall, for safety reasons, of multiple lots of Teleflex Medical’s LMA® MAD Nasal™ Intranasal Mucosal Atomization Device commonly used in combination with naloxone vials for injection to assemble an improvised nasal naloxone kit.
NARCAN® Nasal Spray 4 mg – the FDA approved nasal naloxone product – is not impacted by the recall of the Teleflex Atomizer and potential shortage of non-FDA approved improvised nasal naloxone kits.
NARCAN® Nasal Spray 4 mg is in stock and available at pharmacies, wholesalers, specialty distributors and from Adapt Pharma.
Adapt Pharma is committed to working to support all communities and distributors across the country that may be impacted to provide rapid and affordable access to NARCAN® Nasal Spray 4 mg.
