activity of the brain.
(c) When the prescribing physician has indicated on the
original prescription "may not substitute", a pharmacist may
not interchange an anti-epileptic drug or formulation of an
anti-epileptic drug for the treatment of epilepsy without
notification and the documented consent of the prescribing
physician and the patient or the patient's parent, legal
guardian, or spouse.
This Section does not apply to medication
orders issued for anti-epileptic drugs for any in-patient care
in a licensed hospital.
(d) If a pharmacist substitutes any generic prescription in
place of a brand-name anti-epileptic drug, then the pharmacist
shall provide written notice to the patient no later than the
time the prescription is dispensed.
