Plan B approved for females 15 years of age and older
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KVEO NEWS CENTER 23) — The FDA has approved the Plan B One Step morning after contraceptive pill for women 15 years of age and older without a prescription.
An earlier application by the drug manufacturer to make Plan B One Step available over the counter to all women was rejected in 2011.
The product will be available in retail stores with an onsite pharmacy and clearly labeled with the new age restriction.
Customers will be required to verify their age before purchasing the product and the drug maker will also include a security tag onto the package to prevent theft.
