Pharmaceutical Formulary Review

Pharmaceutical disposal can be more than a bit confusing due to the different Federal and state laws.  Utilizing a reverse distributor handles most pharmaceuticals.  However, this process is not a one size fits all solution.  The Military Item Disposal Instruction (MIDI) Team can help by:

  • An in depth review of all of the items in your formulary to determine disposal method.
  • You will receive an easy to use spread sheet with disposal information.
  • Onsite visit if necessary, to inventory all drugs in the formulary.

Free of charge for all DOD units.
