It is easily spread from person to person in the air and can be very harmful if you develop “active TB.” If your skin test was TB positive, it is likely that your doctor will have you take a medication to help prevent you from developing “active” TB in the future. The Pharmacies at USC can help you understand the risks and benefits of taking this medication.

  • Service is available by appointment only to USC students who have been exposed to tuberculosis (positive PPD or T-spot).

Given the rapid rise of opioid overdoses, many state governments including California have responded by allowing pharmacies to provide naloxone to anyone who either uses opioids, or is around someone who uses opioids. This helps caregivers, concerned loved ones, first responders and patients get naloxone more easily without a physician’s prescription.
