Per FDA requirements, in order to prescribe TIKOSYN new prescribers are required to complete a one-time certification. Even if you have been certified prior to 2011, you are required to secure a one-time recertification. To become (re)certified you must review the following materials:
When you have reviewed all the materials, please print, sign, and mail or fax the Prescriber Certification Form.
The fax number is 1-800-788-2637. After we have received your certification form, we will send a written confirmation of receipt.
In addition to your certification, retail pharmacies and institutional pharmacies must also be certified in order to dispense TIKOSYN. Before dispensing a prescription for TIKOSYN, the pharmacist must confirm that you are a health care professional who has been certified and is listed in the Pfizer National TIKOSYN Database.
It is important that you tell your patients to fill their TIKOSYN prescriptions as soon as possible after they are discharged to avoid any disruptions in their treatment. Although patients must be provided with TIKOSYN upon discharge, it may take a few business days for the pharmacy to order TIKOSYN for subsequent prescriptions.
Should you have any questions regarding the certification program, please call 1-877-TIKOSYN.
