Cold tablet double (or even triple) recording?


With the rollout of OTC codeine recording app MedsASSIST, cold tablets containing codeine and pseudoephedrine may now need to be entered into at least two discreet databases – three if they are also ‘dispensed’.

Lyn McDonald asks in the AJP Discussion Forum:

“Just wondering what everyone was doing about Cold & Flu tablets containing pseudoephedrine & codeine.

Are you entering them into Project STOP & MedsASSIST ?

It now takes “forever” to process the sale. Will they ever come under the same site ?”

    Bet no-one thought that through. Should have just adapted project stop to deal with it instead of wasting time and effort and lame excuses.

      Building on that, as the medassist is much better than project stop, that should be deleted and merged into medassist.
