Prescriptions; off-label use. Provides that a licensed health care provider with prescriptive authority may prescribe, administer, or dispense a drug that has been approved for a specific use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for an off-label use when the health care provider determines, in his professional judgment, that such off-label use is appropriate for the care and treatment of the patient and prohibits a pharmacist from refusing to dispense a drug for off-label use if a valid prescription is presented.
