On February 8th, 2023, the State Medical Board of Ohio adopted new rules regarding weight loss medications. These new rules will significantly increase access to these critical medications for many Ohioans. As the old rules have been in place for a long time, it may take a little while for pharmacists to become accustomed to these new rules. It may be necessary for a patient to print out the new regulations and present them to the pharmacist if they are still wanting to follow the old rules.
A copy of the new regulations can be downloaded at the link below, if the need arises in such a situation.
