Missouri House gives initial approval for prescription drug monitoring program
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – For the fourth time in four years the Missouri House gave initial approval to a proposal to establish a statewide prescription drug monitoring program.
The measure would create a database designed to cut down on doctor-shopping. That’s when patients get prescriptions from multiple doctors and get medicine from multiple pharmacists.
Missouri is the last state in the nation without a statewide drug monitoring program.
