Texas Prescription Monitoring Program

The Texas Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is an electronic database 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 venue 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.

During the 2017 legislative session, the Texas legislature passed House Bill 2561 which provided for the following changes regarding the Texas Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP).
Effective September 1, 2017, 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.  The 85th Texas Legislature changed this requirement, which previously allowed for seven days to send the information.  The reporting requirement applies to all Schedule II, III, IV, and V controlled substances.
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. 
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.
