No central registry in SA either.... although with the new e-health system, the idea is that it'll eventually be rolled out to chemists as well as doctors so that all your records will be up to date & you won't need to give information to a whole lot of different people.

In Qld there is an online central Registry for tracking of and recording pseudoephidrine sales by pharmacists. But I believe that only applies to that drug.
If a pharmacist suspects someone of abusing OTC medication/ dr shopping/ pharmacist shopping then they have to notify the Drug Dependence Unit and seek assistance for that person.
They also have to keep records of the sale of regulated or controlled medications but they are not stored centrally.

All "pharmacist only medicines" sales required your details. Examples are Ventolin, Sedating antihistamines, 1% steroid creams, Pseudoephedrine and Codeine products. This is a legal requirement nationwide. If a pharmacist chooses not to do it they are breaking the law. It is only on record at the pharmacy you purchase it at with the exception of Pseudoephedrine products as mentioned in pp. They are also recorded on the national database "Project stop". This database is recorded by brand only and will only prompt a suspicious sale if you repeatedly buy the exact same product.

I always get asked for my licence when buying medication containing Pseudoephedrine. I had wondered if it was a nationwide database too!
