CVS Begins Selling Heroin Antidote

CVS has made the drug naloxone available over the counter in 12 states, following a rapid rise in heroin overdose rates. The drug can reverse a heroin or prescription painkiller overdose. The drug, whose price has recently doubled because of demand, will cost $52.99 in injectible form and $40.69 for nasal spray in Pennsylvania, for example.
