Who can purchase MEDISCA products?
MEDISCA products can be purchased by licensed dealers, pharmacists and practitioners. We understand the need to prevent diversion in the industry and take our responsibility very seriously. As a supplier of controlled substances, we have a duty to ensure that the material we supply is used for legitimate purposes. To order Controlled Substances through MEDISCA, customers must have both a MEDISCA Account and a DEA Certificate. In addition, MEDISCA reserves the right to audit these accounts to ensure they comply with MEDISCA’s standards for distribution of controlled substances. In all cases, the opening of an account is subject to the exclusive discretion and sole judgment of MEDISCA. All orders are subject to acceptance by MEDISCA, at its sole discretion.
Does MEDISCA use CSOS for Controlled Substance Ordering?
Yes, our Schedule 2 Controlled Substances are available for purchase online. Please visit our CSOS page to learn more. For all other controlled substances, you can order online on our website or contact your MEDISCA representative to place an order.
Do we have access to the FLAVORx formulas for flavoring a liquid medication?
MEDISCA is making FLAVORx flavors available to its customers for use in compounded medications, but purchasing these flavors does not mean the pharmacy is a FLAVORx customer. If, for an additional fee, you would like to gain access to the FLAVORx formulary for commercially available liquid medication recipes, as well as marketing support and inclusion with store locators, please begin by completing our FLAVORx Registration Form.
How do FLAVORx flavors compare to the MEDISCA flavors that my compounding pharmacy has been using in our formulations?
FLAVORx flavors are interchangeable with the current water-soluble flavors that you are using in your aqueous oral liquid formulations. Essentially, FLAVORx flavors can be used in a 1:1 substitution with the water-soluble flavors that you are currently using in these formulations.
How do I obtain MEDISCA NDC numbers?
