The state of Alabama currently follows federal requirements for prescription pads as set forth by the CMS. Additionally, Alabama legislature states, “Every written prescription for a controlled substance issued by a physician shall contain two signature lines. Under one signature line shall be printed clearly the words “dispense as written.” Under the other signature line shall be printed clearly the words “product selection permitted.” The prescribing physician shall communicate instructions to the pharmacist by entering his or her non-electronic, handwritten signature on the appropriate line.”

State Requirements

All states are required to meet the baseline standards set forth by the CMS. Several states have Prescription Monitoring Programs that require prescription pads to have specific security features.
