(Food and Drug Administration, FDA)--
The FDA has approved the first generic nasal spray used to reverse opioid overdoses.
Generic Naloxone has been available for years in an *injectable* form in a health care setting, but this is the first generic nasal spray that anyone can use without training.
It can be used on both adults and children by spraying it into one nostril while the person is lying on his or her back. The FDA says the spray can be repeated if necessary.
According to the CDC, more than 130 americans die every day from overdoses involving opioid drugs.
