NEW CITY, N.Y. -- Sen. David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Westchester) joined pharmacists and health care advocates at a New City pharmacy on Wednesday, Dec. 9, to urge that the life-saving drug Naloxone be made available over the counter.

Also known as Narcan, the opioid antagonist can reverse overdoses from heroin and other drugs, Carlucci said.

Pointing to the opioid epidemic currently sweeping the country, Calucci noted that New York City -- and 14 states -- now allow the sale of Naloxone without a prescription.

He urged the New York State’s Department of Health to take similar action.

The gathering took place at the Clarkstown Pharmacy on South Main Street, Carlucci’s office said.
