DSHS Pharmacy Branch Returns:

****FOR RETURN of Drugs or Destruction Policy and Procedures****

Each Class D-licensed pharmacy in the state of Texas is required to have a Policy and Procedure manual which will outline, among other things, a procedure for Drug Destruction and Returns. Compliance with this procedure is overseen by the Pharmacist-in-Charge (PIC) who is under written agreement to provide services for your pharmacy.  

The DSHS Pharmacy Branch cannot be responsible for the return/disposal of expired medications for Class D pharmacies for whom our pharmacists are not the PIC. Therefore, local and private medication providers (i.e. non-DSHS facilities) should institute and follow their own procedures for medication destruction.

Non-DSHS site Drug returns must be Approved by the Pharmacy Branch, please contact us.


New User/New Location:

An ITEAMS request form must be submitted to the appropriate Program Approver for new user(s),new location(s), 

upon departure of employment, or termination of ITEAMS access.

Once the appropriate Program approves the user/site, the request will be forwarded to the Pharmacy Branch Helpdesk.

New users and New locations will only be added after the Pharmacy Branch receives approval from the designated Program.

Upon approval the new user or site is added to ITEAMS and the Pharmacy Branch will email the new user their

 ITEAMS user name and password, or terminate access as appropriately outlined in the request form.
