Since April 2013, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been closely following the legislation ordering emergency contraception (like Plan B One-Step and its generics) to be accessible over the counter, without any age or point-of-sale restrictions. Check out the latest developments below, and continue checking back for more coverage
In long overdue news, unrestricted access to Plan B One-Step is actually in the works. Yesterday, Federal Judge Edward Korman approved the FDAÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s proposed plan from earlier this week to make Plan B One-Step available without any age or point-of-sale restrictions.
Judge Korman originally ordered all levonorgestral-based emergency contraceptives to be moved OTC for women of all ages back in April. After much back and forth, the Department of Justice announced on Monday that they would comply with his order to make Plan B One-Step (the leading brand of emergency contraception) available without restrictions. Now that Judge Korman has accepted this plan of action, Plan BÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s manufacturer (Teva) will submit an application to the FDA, which will likely lead to new labeling and packaging for the drug. Once the FDA approves this, theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll work to get the drug on store shelves as soon as possible.
