Pharmacies carrying Naloxone in Philly

Below is a growing list of pharmacies that reported they are carrying the overdose medication Naloxone and are participating in the Standing Order issued by Physician General Rachael Levine. There may be other pharmacies in your area that have decided to carry Naloxone or that may be able to order Naloxone even if they are not on the list.

PA Act 139 and the October 2015 Standing Order allow individuals to obtain prescriptions for Naloxone and fill those prescriptions. The Standing Order is a pre-written medication order. The Standing Order allows pharmacies to dispense medication, rather than needing a separate prescription written out to each individual by their personal physician for the medication. Various pharmacies may have their own standing orders on file.

Note that in some instances, insurance may not pay for a prescription that is not written for/issued to a specific individual by name. In this instance, it may still be helpful to acquire a prescription written by a healthcare provider to a particular person. Insurance will be billed to the insurance carrier of the person whose name is on the prescription. If there is no prescription, the insurance will be billed for the person requesting the medication, even if they will use that medication on another person. If an individual states that the medication is for someone else, that person's insurance will be billed. Therefore, it is ideal for an individual going to a pharmacy to come with a prescription or state that they want their insurance billed.

This list was accurate at the time it was last updated; however, changes may have occurred since that time. This list is meant to be a resource, rather than a guarantee of the medication being in stock at a particular location.

  • All Walgreens locations in Philadelphia are currently carrying two forms of naloxone, the IMS Intranasal product, and the injectable naloxone. If medication is not available at the time of request, medication should arrive at that store within 24 hours, or a person will be directed to another Walgreens with medication in stock. Walgreens does prefer prescriptions, and as per the Standing Order, if medication available is set to expire in less than one year, it cannot be dispensed via the Standing Order. As such, new medication will be ordered with an expiration date that meets the order.
