Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP)
The Maryland Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) was created to support providers and their patients with the safe and effective use of prescription drugs. The PDMP is part of Maryland's response to the ongoing opioid epidemic in Maryland and across the country.
Beginning October 1, 2016, practitioners authorized to prescribe Controlled Dangerous Substances (CDS) in Maryland must be registered with the PDMP prior to obtaining a new or renewal State CDS Registration by July 1, 2017, whichever occurs sooner. This applies to physicians, physicians assistants, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, dentists, podiatrists and veterinarians. This mandate does not apply to nurses.
