Drugs that are "dormant" should be pulled into drugref so that allergies in OSCAR continue to function. Not sure if these drugs should be added to the inactive list or perhaps a new list needs to be created for the dormant drugs.
Here are two examples of DINs for two drugs (one dormant, the other active):
Keflex: 00244392 (Dormant)
Keflex: 00035645 (Active)
You can check them by going to Health Canada DPD:
The dormant drug does not get pulled into drugref during an Update.
Information about a change that occured to the structure of the files that drugref uses on September 2017 (scroll to Dormant Products):
The files for Health Canada DPD can be found here:
Specifically, drug_dr.zip is the dormant drug list.
