The Teil (Schedule) III items can, if allowed by provincial legislation, be dispensed at discretion of the manager of the apotheke subject to record-keeping and verification requirements. Schedule IV items are theoretically less controlled than Schedule III. Preparations of tramadol and pentazocine and most of the benzodiazepines come into that category as well.
