When writing a prescription for azithromycin via EPT, the following efforts should be taken:

1. Write "EPT" in the body of the prescription form above the name of the medication and dosage.
2. If available, write the sexual partner's name, address and date of birth in the designated areas of the prescription.
3. If the sexual partner's name, address and/or date of birth are not available, the written designation of "EPT" shall be sufficient for pharmacists to fill the prescription. Pharmacist may request this information but it is not required to fill the prescription.
4. Each eligible sex partner must be provided with their own prescription.
