Prescription Drug Monitoring Program
Informational Page

Senate Bill 286 (view text of the law here) was signed into law by Governor Lynch on June 12, 2012.  It creates a controlled drug health and safety program (prescription monitoring program) and the Board of Pharmacy has been tasked with implementing the program through the use of Federal & private grants & at no cost to the state general fund.  NH will join the 48 other states which currently have prescription monitoring programs in place.  Once the program is implemented, it will be monitoring controlled drug prescriptions (DEA Schedule II through IV) to track/flag "doctor shoppers" and multiple/duplicate controlled substance prescriptions for a patient and notify law enforcement and the various state/federal regulatory boards of any unusual activity.

A 13-Member Advisory Council was created to assist the Board of Pharmacy in an advisory capacity and with the development / operation of the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (Controlled Drug Health & Safety Program). More information will be forthcoming as we progress with the implementation of the program - please check this page regularly for the latest updates.
