Arkansas Physician Dispensing Laws & Regulations
Note: PharmaLink has compiled the information below for reference only. State dispensing regulations change frequently and we recommend consulting an attorney or your state medical or pharmacy board with specific questions or to verify your eligibility to dispense.
Physician dispensing is allowed in Arkansas but with a permitting requirement that typically renders it unfeasible. In order to be issued a dispensing permit, a physician must display a need to dispense a specific legend drug to the physician’s patients, such as difficulty for patients to obtain the medication or distance to the nearest pharmacy.
Most states have exceptions for physicians in rural locations or in specific situations, and many states also allow physicians to carry items administered in the physician’s office (e.g. injections). If you think you may fit into one of the exceptions in Arkansas, please contact us today and a representative will get in touch with you as soon as possible.
