ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Walgreens now will offer the Narcan opioid overdose spray over the counter.

It’s already available over the counter at CVS pharmacies.

“With the nasal form, you first of all have to know how to use it, you have to know how to assemble it. And also a lot of times because of the mix of drugs with the heroin, one dose might not do it,” says Helen Sandkuhl, the administrative director of emergency medicine at SSM Health SLU Hospital.

The cost for a single dose of the nasal spray is 136 dollars.
