Prescription drug samples may only be distributed to licensed practitioners or to the retail pharmacies, the pharmacies of hospitals or other health care entities upon the written request of a licensed practitioner.
 
a. True
b. False


Prescription drug samples may only be distributed to licensed practitioners or to the retail pharmacies, the pharmacies of hospitals or other health care entities upon the written request of a licensed practitioner.
 
a. True
b. False

Answer: (b) False, [21 CFR 203.3 and Section 503(d) of the Act].
 
Under section 503(d) of the FFDCA, prescription drug samples may only be distributed to licensed practitioners or to the pharmacies of hospitals or other health care entities upon the written request of a licensed practitioner.
 
A “health care entity” means any person that provides diagnostic, medical, surgical, or dental treatment, or chronic or rehabilitative care, but does not include any retail pharmacy (21 CFR 203.3(q)).
 
A health care entity cannot simultaneously also be a retail pharmacy.
 
If a pharmacy of a health care entity operates as part of the health care entity, it is eligible to receive prescription drug samples from a manufacturer or authorized distributor of record, if the drug samples are obtained pursuant to a written, signed request of a licensed practitioner affiliated with the health care entity.
 
“Affiliation” is interpreted to mean that the requesting practitioner sees patients at the health care entity. A retail pharmacy that has no relationship to a health care entity is not permitted to receive prescription drug samples (21 CFR 203.3 and Section 503(d) of the Act).

Pharmacists in Indiana are allowed denying the sale of ephedrine or pseudoephedrine products.

True or False


Pharmacists in Indiana are allowed denying the sale of ephedrine or pseudoephedrine products.

True or False

Answer: True. Pharmacists in Indiana may refuse to sell ephedrine or pseudoephedrine to a purchaser if the pharmacist determines that the drugs are not medically necessary, according to a recently passed law that goes into effect July 1, 2016. The pharmacist is provided with civil immunity for denying the sale, under Senate Bill 80 (SB 80).
 
The law states an individual who has a relationship on record with a pharmacy may purchase pseudoephedrine or ephedrine. However, if the purchaser does not have a relationship on record with the pharmacy, the pharmacist is required to determine whether there is a legitimate medical or pharmaceutical need for the ephedrine or pseudoephedrine.
 
A person who is denied the sale of a pseudoephedrine or ephedrine product may obtain pseudoephedrine or ephedrine pursuant to a prescription. SB 80 also adds ephedrine and pseudoephedrine to the definition of “controlled substance” for purposes of the Indiana Scheduled Prescription Electronic Collection and Tracking program. The Indiana Board of Pharmacy is required to adopt emergency rules that are effective July 1, 2016, under the bill.
