Drug Companies Want to Manipulate Illinois Law to Line Their Pockets
Posted on: 4/23/2021

A flawed bill has surfaced in Springfield! Senate Bill 2535 would: 

  • Mandate that prescribers offer a prescription for naloxone under certain circumstances
  • Require that physicians have specific conversations about addiction not only with patients, but one or more individuals designated by the patients

This bill is an initiative of a drug company that manufactures naloxone and is their attempt to manipulate state law to increase their profits at the expense of the physician-patient relationship. 

It is dangerous precedent to allow drug companies to pass laws that mandate how physicians treat their patients.
