Locking Prescription Vial (LPV® ) Dispensing

Pharmacy customers use our locking prescription vials (LPVs) for dispensing controlled substances and other diverted or high-risk medications. LPVs have been proven effective in eliminating diversion in clinical studies of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) dispensing, and in 2023 the National Association of City and County Health Officials (NACCHO) designated LPV dispensing a best practice for MAT dispensing. Additional trials are underway to test LPV dispensing more broadly in controlled substance dispensing, and many of our customers already dispense a broad array of medications into LPVs. Our LPVs are available on a direct basis and through Cardinal & McKesson and are easily incorporated into your practice and workflow.

“100% of providers surveyed were in support of using a locking prescription vial for controlled substances as a means of safe storage.”

LPVs are used broadly to prevent diversion and accidental pediatric ingestion, for means reduction in suicide prevention, to reduce patient barriers to MAT enrollment, and even to ensure the integrity of home delivery chains of custody.
