To Cut Abuse, F.D.A. Is Altering Painkiller Label Rules – NYTimes.com.

On a different note, but similar topic, I’ve been reading here and there about the push to have naltrexone readily available in communities. Naltrexone is the drug used to reverse narcotic overdoses and is used in hospital settings. I haven’t witnessed it being used, but I’ve heard it’s like having ice water poured on someone’s face that’s sound asleep.

I’m all for this. I’m all for new labeling and education on narcotics, too.
