Pharmacy Care Resources for Patients and the Public
The resources listed below can support active participation in your pharmacy care.
Naloxone is a life-saving drug that can temporarily reverse the effects of an opioid overdose and it is available in Manitoba without a prescription. Naloxone may be sold behind a pharmacy counter or in the retail area of the store. Ask your pharmacist where you can find naloxone.
In keeping with our mandate to protect the public, the College maintains a list of community pharmacies that carry naloxone kits you can buy. Please contact your regular pharmacy first for availability and price.
Once you buy a naloxone kit, a pharmacist can teach you how to use the kit in an opioid overdose emergency.
If you need a publicly funded (free) naloxone kit, please contact Street Connections.
If you need help with an addiction, you can call the Manitoba Addictions Helpline at 1-855-662-6605, or visit http://mbaddictionhelp.ca/
