Prescribing Vicodin in EMR

As of January 14, 2014, pharmacies will start to phase out their Vicodin with acetaminophen doses of more than 325mg. Commercial pharmacies have not given any clear guideline for their phase out.

UMC pharmacy has adopted Vicodin with strengths listed below for the formulary:

• 5/325

• 7/325

• 10/325

Presently the old doses exist in our EMR, but we are working with GE to amend the system to remove the old doses and include the new dosing. If you have any questions regarding Vicodin and the new doses, please contact the pharmacy.
