PMP Mandate Effective March 1

Beginning March 1, 2020, pharmacists and prescribers will be required to check the patient’s PMP history before dispensing or prescribing opioids, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, or carisoprodol. Prescribers must register for an account ahead of this deadline with the state’s prescription monitoring program (PMP). An account allows physicians to check a patient’s prescription history for information that indicates illicit activity, drug abuse, drug diversion, or doctor shopping. 

To receive help or instructions from TSBP in setting up your account, call (512) 305-8050 or email texaspmp@pharmacy.texas.gov.
