Supplementary notes

The data reflect approximately 92% of all prescriptions from retail pharmacies and are projected nationally.

Starting with 2017 data, IQVIA changed the frame of measurement from number of prescriptions “dispensed to bin” to number of prescriptions “sold to the patient.” To do this, IQVIA eliminated the effects of voided and reversed prescriptions (prescriptions that were never received by the patient), resulting in a downward shift in naloxone prescriptions dispensed of 19.5% for 2017 and 18.9% for 2018.
