The regulatory authorities in U.S. started taking steps towards combating the issue by encouraging the use of opioid antagonists as prescription opioids for adults and children, given the changing scenario of opioid prescription for medication to misuse and overuse of the drug leading to opioid crisis. For instance, the Commissioner’s Opioid Action Plan by U.S. FDA in 2016 addressed the epidemic of opioid abuse, addiction and overdose wherein, the FDA approved two products of naloxone for the community use in adults and pediatrics. On the other hand, the FDA made the regulatory guidelines more stringent pertaining to prescription opioids (agonists), for both medical practitioners and healthcare providers as well as for prescription opioids manufacturers.
