Pharmacy use only section of triplicate prescriptions

January 11, 2018

Since changes were made to which TPP prescriptions need to be sent to CPSA, we’ve received questions about whether the “pharmacy use only” section of the triplicate needs to be completed if a copy is not being sent to CPSA. The pharmacy information including date, prescription number, DIN, quantity, and dispensing pharmacist must be recorded on the pharmacy transaction record. Therefore, if the transaction record is filed with the TPP prescription, the “pharmacy use only” section does not need to be completed. Please note that a “received by” signature is still required.
