Nationwide Recall Issued on Faulty Naloxone Atomizers

The Community Overdose Action Team (COAT) urges people with naloxone to check their supplies to replace atomizers impacted by a nationwide manufacturer recall on the MAD300 nasal atomizer. The recall does not impact the medication, but a part of the device used to administer the drug.

The recall was issued after it was discovered that faulty nasal atomizers shoot a stream of naloxone into patients’ noses rather than producing a mist, potentially making the overdose reversal drug less effective. At this time, there have been no reports of product malfunctions. Additionally, nasal atomizers not subject to this recall may still be used to administer naloxone in the event of an overdose.

The ADAMHS for Montgomery County opposes the legalization and commercialization of marijuana for recreational purposes. In addition, legalizing marijuana for medical use should not be decided by legislative or voter initiative. Marijuana should be subject to the same research, consideration and study as any other potential medicine, under the standards of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The supports controlled research into the benefits of cannabis-based medicines which follow the basic tenets of good medicine, and which would provide scientifically-valid support for the conditions it is proven to help; controlled strength and purity; appropriate dosage levels; and safe means of administration.
