Save time building prescriptions by starting with a framework that includes your favorite products, customized dosage and duration instructions, informational material, and a customized message.
Templates you save can be applied to new prescriptions for patients, then personalized to suit their needs. Get started by creating a template from scratch or save an existing prescription as a template to use later!
Select Build a protocol template to manage existing templates or create a new template.
Tip! Check out Protocols to view evidence-based protocols created by Fullscript's very own Integrative Medical Advisory Team. If you like what you see, select Upload This Template to make the protocol available within your dispensary!
Creating New Templates
Start a New Template
To build a new template, go to Prescriptions then select My templates. Click New template and enter a name that best describes the template being built. Before you can save this template, add products, a custom message, or attach documents/patient handouts. Once complete, select Save Template at the bottom of the page.
Select My templates to view, manage, and create treatment plan Templates.
Tip! Templates can be edited at any time from the template management page accessible from the Prescriptions or Recommendations tab - depending on Terminology selected in your Account Settings.
Add Products, Duration, and Dosage
The template builder uses the same fundamental layout of the prescription tool! To browse products, click Add a product or select Products from the toolbar to search the Fullscript catalog. Select a product's name to learn more about a product before adding it to your template and consider using filters (ie. formulation, ingredients, common labels, form, etc.) to find products best suited for your template.
Customize dosage and duration before proceeding to add a message or attachments to the template. Come back at any time to remove or add more products as needed.

To save a patient prescription as a template:
- Search and select the patient's name
- Click View prescription
- From the bottom of the prescription, select Save as template
- Name your new template and make edits if needed

- Select Templates from the prescription toolbar.
- From available templates, select apply.
- Add and remove products, adjust dosages and quantities, and personalize the message as needed.

Protocols have been curated by the Fullscript Integrative Medical Advisory team using an evidence-informed approach, that practitioners can use as a foundation when developing individualized treatment plans. The ingredients and dosing details included in these protocols are based on a review of literature available at the time of publication. Specific product recommendations are based on most recommended products by Fullscript users and curated specifically for ingredient, dosing, and form.
