Texas Prescription Monitoring Program

The Texas Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is used to collect and monitor prescription data for all Schedule II, III, IV, and V Controlled Substances dispensed by a pharmacy in Texas or to a Texas resident from a pharmacy located in another state.  The PMP also provides a database for monitoring patient prescription history for practitioners and the ordering of Schedule II Texas Official Prescription Forms.  Click here for more information about the PMP.

All Texas-licensed pharmacies are required to report all dispensed controlled substances records to the Texas Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) no later than the next business day after the prescription is filled. 

Beginning September 1, 2019, pharmacists and prescribers (other than a veterinarian) will be required to check the patient’s PMP history before dispensing or prescribing opioids, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, or carisoprodol.  The reporting requirement applies to all Schedule II, III, IV, and V controlled substances.

Currently, pharmacists and prescribers are encouraged to check the PMP to help eliminate duplicate and overprescribing of controlled substances, as well as to obtain critical controlled substance history information.
