Attention all patients on medications containing hydrocodone:
- You will need a new presciption each month for your medication.
- There will be NO REFILLS allowed and the prescription CAN NOT BE CALLED OR FAXED to the pharmacy.
- Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants will NOT be able to prescribe these medications any longer. You will have to contact your physician for a new prescription after this time.
The DEA has stated they are taking this action in an effort to curb the national problem with hydrocodone abuse. Unfortunately, this is handled on a federal level and is completely out of our control. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask to speak with one of our pharmacists. Thank you for your understanding. Click here for more information from the DEA.
