DrugTestKitUSA celebrates the recent FDA approval of RiVive, 3 milligrams (mg) naloxone hydrochloride nasal spray for over-the-counter (OTC), nonprescription use, the second naloxone product approved for use without a prescription. The first approval happened with Narcan, on March 29, 2023. This is a significant milestone in the fight against the opioid epidemic. As healthcare professionals and communities prepare for broader access to this medication, DrugTestKitUSA supports this effort with comprehensive opioid testing solutions.

Naloxone is a critical drug used to reverse opioid overdoses and has been available primarily by prescription since 2015 or through emergency responders. The FDA’s decision to approve a second OTC naloxone nasal spray represents a significant step in increasing access to this vital medication, empowering individuals and caregivers to respond promptly to opioid-related emergencies.

The agency has long prioritized access to naloxone products, and we welcome manufacturers of other naloxone products to discuss potential nonprescription development programs with the FDA,” said FDA Commissioner Robert M. Califf, M.D.

Opioid overdoses continue to be a significant public health concern in the United States, with devastating consequences for individuals and families. According to the FDA, In the 12-month period ending in February 2023, more than 105,000 reported fatal overdoses occurred which were primarily driven by synthetic opioids such as fentanyl. The FDA’s approval of the OTC naloxone nasal sprays offers renewed hope in reducing the toll of opioid-related deaths.

DrugTestKitUSA Payments built in partnership with Stripe

Security at Stripe: Learn how Stripe handles security.

A PCI-certified auditor has audited Stripe. We’re a certified PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. To accomplish this, we use the best-in-class security tools and practices to maintain a high level of security at Stripe.

HTTPS and HSTS for secure connections

Stripe forces HTTPS for all services using TLS (SSL), including our public website and the Dashboard to ensure secure connections:

  • Stripe.js is served only over TLS.
  • Stripe’s official libraries connect to Stripe’s servers over TLS and verify TLS certificates on each connection.

We regularly audit the details of our implementation, including the certificates we serve, the certificate authorities we use, and the ciphers we support. We use HSTS to ensure that browsers interact with Stripe only over HTTPS. Stripe is also on the HSTS preloaded lists for both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

Sensitive data and communication encryption

All card numbers are encrypted at rest with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe’s internal servers and daemons can obtain plain text card numbers but can request that cards are sent to a service provider on a static allowlist. Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in a separate hosting environment, and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s primary services including our API and website.
