Tex. Health & Safety Code Section 439.015
Records; Disciplinary Actions


A physician shall keep records of the physician’s purchases and disposals, including sales and dispensations, of DMSO. The records shall include the date of each purchase or disposal by the physician, the name and address of the person receiving DMSO, and the reason for the disposal of DMSO to that person.


The Texas Medical Board may suspend, cancel, or revoke the license of any physician who:


fails to keep complete and accurate records of purchases and disposals of DMSO in a formulation not approved for human use; or


prescribes or administers DMSO in a manner that has been proven, in a formal hearing held by the board, to be harmful to the patient.


The Texas Medical Board may temporarily suspend the license of a physician who prescribes or administers DMSO in a manner that, in the board’s opinion, creates an immediate danger to the public. The board must conduct a hearing on the temporary suspension as soon as practicable after the suspension.
