1. What do I need to do to start dispensing?

Most states have requirements for physician dispensing. The clinic needs to have a valid DEA license registered to their physical location.

2. What are the storage requirements?

Compliance with FDA and DEA regulations requires having a locked cabinet or drawer. Controlled medications, such as phentermine, must be stored in a double-locked storage area. A locked cabinet behind a locked door satisfies the double-lock requirement for controlled medications.

3. What are the regulatory requirements?

Five major types of regulatory requirements exist to govern dispensing by physicians among the states. These requirements differ in each state and include:

  1. Permit dispensing only in limited situations
  2. Enable state agencies to identify dispensing physicians
  3. Limit profits on drugs dispensed by physicians
  4. Protect freedom of choice for consumers
  5. Impose procedural controls such as labeling and record-keeping

4. Is dispensing legal in my state?

Utah bans physician dispensing altogether.

Massachusetts, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and Texas have important limitations on physician office dispensing when it comes to markup and dosages.

Texas does not allow doctors to dispense if a pharmacy is located within 35 miles.

5. How long does it take to receive my order?

Once your order is placed, product will ship within two to three business days. Orders are shipped via ground service but can be expedited if needed.

6. What happens if my internet connection is down when using the dispensing software?

The bottles will come labeled FDA and DEA approved to hand write in the patient’s name and information. Keep track of drug information NDC/lot, patient details and enter in the order once the internet is restored.
