c. Prescription Form (DD 1289). Department of Defense (DD) Form 1289 (see
figure 2-3) is the official prescription form used in the U.S. Army. In the manufacturing
section, the DD Form 1289 is used to order controlled substances used to manufacture
products. To order controlled substances for manufacturing purposes, the Rx must be
lined out. The Rx is lined out because the prescription order is not intended for an
individual patient. The DD Form 1289 is not signed by a physician in this particular
case. Instead, the DD Form 1289 is prepared by manufacturing personnel, signed by a
pharmacy officer, and carried to the controlled drug area where it is filled.
