If you suffer from minor acne (without nodules or pustules), our pharmacists can help by providing advice about proper skin hygiene and may prescribe, under certain conditions, a treatment that can improve your condition.
Eligibility criteria and details
The pharmacist MAY PRESCRIBE a medication to treat minor acne (without nodules or pustules) if:
The patient has already been diagnosed by the physician or assessed by a specialized nurse practitioner (SNP).
A prescription for the condition has already been written.
The pharmacist CANNOT PRESCRIBE a medication if:
More than 5 years have passed since the last treatment prescribed by another professional qualified to prescribe medication.
Unless there is clinical justification or a supply shortage, the pharmacist should normally re-prescribe the drug listed on the physician's or SNP's reference order. When prescribing a different drug, the pharmacist should ensure that the drug prescribed is in a class of drugs equal to or less potent than the drug originally prescribed by the physician or SNP.
If more than 5 years have passed since the last prescribed treatment or if this condition has never been diagnosed, the pharmacist may still prescribe or recommend an over-the-counter medication if the patient's clinical situation or any other circumstance justifies it.
