    “Legend drug” means a drug limited by § 503(b)(1) of the federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to being dispensed by or upon a medical practitioner’s prescription because the drug is:

    (i) Habit-forming;

    (ii) Toxic or having potential for harm; or

    (iii) Limited in its use to use under a practitioner’s supervision by the new drug application for the drug.

    The product label of a legend drug is required to contain the statement “CAUTION: FEDERAL LAW PROHIBITS DISPENSING WITHOUT A PRESCRIPTION.”

    A legend drug includes prescription drugs subject to the requirement of § 503(b)(1) of the federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act .

    In the U.S., a legend drug is any drug that requires a prescription. This may be a controlled substance (narcotic) or a non-narcotic drug.
