There are two Types of medications that you can create.

PMO - Prescription Medication Only 

Prescription medications (PMO) are medicines which are prescribed as medical treatment for a student. In most instances these will be unique to each student.

The unique prescription details for each medicine relating to an individual student's dosage and frequency of administering the medication is allocated to to a student in the individual student's profile (found in the Medications Tab of the student's Medical Profile).  

OTC - Over the Counter Medications

Over-the-counter (OTC) medicines are non-prescription medicines that you can purchase and administer without a prescription.

OTC medications are safe and effective when you follow the directions on the label and as directed by health care professionals. Whereas PMO medications are allocated to individual students, OTC medications are available for all students however each individual student's access to the available OTCs requires a permission in the student's profile for each individual OTC.  Parents and Staff have the ability to set the student's permission for OTC medications which is fond in the Medications Tab of a student's Medical Profile.
