Important Hydrocodone Update,
With the DEA rescheduling of hydrocodone combination products (HCPs) from Schedule III to Schedule II, the DEA has commented that refills on any prescriptions for HCPs that were issued prior to October 6, 2014 may be dispensed before April 8, 2015. However, the Wisconsin Controlled Substances Board (CSB), which has the authority to regulate and reschedule controlled substances, met October 7 and rescheduled HCPs from Schedule III to Schedule II effective November 1, 2014. The state-level rescheduling of HCPs will cause all refills of HCPs in Wisconsin (even those authorized prior to October 6, 2014) to be prohibited as of November 1, 2014.
