Regulatory Scenario

In 2016, Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) placed naloxone on Schedule 3 when used for the treatment of opioid overdose, thus allowing the over-the-counter (OTC) purchase of naloxone in Australia.

In Europe, several countries allow take-home naloxone due to high rate of opioid overdose in this region. Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain, and the U.K. (EMCDDA, 2015c) support take-home naloxone programs.

According to the data published by Regulatory Affairs Professional Society, naloxone is still not approved by the U.S. FDA as an over-the-counter (OTC) drug.

Key players operating in the naloxone market include, Mylan N.V., Novartis AG, Indivior Plc., ADAPT Pharma, Inc., Amphastar Pharmaceuticals, Inc., INSYS Therapeutics, Inc., Mundipharma International Limited, Kaleo, Inc., and Kern Pharma, S.L.
