Opioid and Benzodiazepine Report: February 2019

​​"Today we are publishing a report update on Opioids and Benzodiazepines prescribed and dispensed in Mississippi through 2018. This report offers all stakeholders accurate information. The Mississippi Board of Pharmacy takes seriously our responsibility to the citizens of Mississippi. Part of that responsibility is not only collecting data through the Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP), but additionally in the detailed analysis of that data. We will continue in our detailed study of this data and share updates when appropriate. In our effort to find ways to battle the Opioid Crisis in Mississippi, it is our hope this information will be used to make appropriate and practical decisions." - - Cheri Atwood, Director of Compliance, Mississippi Board of Pharmacy
