Issuance of Multiple Official Prescription Forms

Senate Bill 904 allows practitioners the option to issue multiple Schedule II controlled substance prescriptions, on an Official Prescription form, to a patient at one time; the total quantity may not exceed a ninety (90) day supply.


Examples of multiple schedule II prescriptions issued by a physician: 

Official Prescription Form #1, shows an issuance date of 01-01-2010;

Official Prescription Form #2, must also show an issuance date of 01-01-2010, and include written instructions stating “do not fill prior to 02-01-10”; and

Official Prescription Form #3, must also show an issuance date of 01-01-2010, and include written instructions stating “do not fill prior to 03-01-10”; 

In addition, the pharmacy may not dispense a schedule II prescription under the following conditions:  

Official Prescription Form #1, cannot be filled if presented to the pharmacy 21 days after 01-01-2010;

Official Prescription Form #2, cannot be filled if presented to the pharmacy 21 days after 02-01-2010; and

Official Prescription Form #3, cannot be filled if presented to the pharmacy 21 days after 03-01-2010.
