DCP: Prescription Monitoring Program

Prescription Monitoring Program

{Prescription Drugs} The prescription monitoring program collects prescription data for Schedule II through Schedule V drugs into a central database, the Connecticut Prescription Monitoring and Reporting System (CPMRS), which can then be used by providers and pharmacists in the active treatment of their patients.


The purpose of the CPMRS is to present a complete picture of a patientís controlled substance use, including prescriptions by other providers, so that the provider can properly manage the patientís treatment, including the referral of a patient to services offering treatment for drug abuse or addiction when appropriate.

Under Connecticut law, information about all transactions for controlled substances (Schedule II-V) dispensed in Connecticut must be reported to the CPMRS. Pharmacies Ė- both in and out of state Ė- and dispensing practitioners must submit data at least once per week. The data is then cleaned if needed, and added to a relational database.

Note: Public Act 13-172 was signed into law on June 21, 2013 and became effective immediately. This Public Act will have two direct effects on prescribers in the state of Connecticut.

  • All prescribers in possession of a Connecticut Controlled Substance Registration issued by the State of Connecticut, Department of Consumer Protection, will be required to register as a user with the Connecticut Prescription Monitoring and Reporting System (CPMRS) at www.ctpmp.com.

  • Any prescribers who dispense controlled substances from their practice or facility, etc., will be required to upload dispensing information into the CPMRS Data Collection website at www.ctrxreport.com.

  • Notification Letter to Practitioners January 2014  {Portable Document Format (PDF)}

Disclaimer: The CPMRS receives data at least once per week from dispensing pharmacies and practitioners. Therefore, the data within the database may not be accurate or complete. For more information about any prescription, please contact the dispensing pharmacy or the prescriber.
