Important information for prescribers and pharmacies:
- Benzodiazepine prescribers who are not currently registered with NSPMP will need to complete a registration form to obtain an NSPMP ID by October 20th to avoid having their prescriptions held at the pharmacy.
- Benzodiazepines prescriptions will continue to be written on regular prescription pads (duplicate pads are not required)
- Benzodiazepine prescribing histories will be available via NSPMP’s e-Access portal on October 20th
