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.

Montgomery County Commissioner Dan Foley has established a Collective Impact Collaborative to attack the heroin/opioid epidemic that is plaguing our community. The goals are to reduce the number of people dying from drug overdoses and reduce the number of people addicted.
“Confronting this public health/safety crisis will be incredibly difficult, but we must do it together. We must attack this epidemic that is taking the lives of our family members, friends and neighbors and affecting every community in Montgomery County,” said Commissioner Foley
To provide community leadership in planning, developing, and supporting high quality, innovative, and accountable mental health and addiction services and strategies so that all Montgomery County residents achieve wellness.
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.
