Re: Can you transfer a Class 3 narcotic med
The rules / laws on script refills, transfers & etc are federally regulated, not state. Therefore, they apply to any state in which you reside. Here are the basics:
Schedule II- No refills. Must have hard copy, unless an "emergency" and then a hard copy must follow within 48 hours.
Schedule III- Up to 5 refills, or a original 6 month script. May be phoned in. May transfer one time only. So, if after one script, you can transfer, but cannot transfer back. Need new script if you want to go back. Any Schedule III script is good for 6 months, then expires (why anyone would wait is beyond me, but that's the rule).
Of course, any pharmacist anywhere can refuse a script for a variety of reasons too numerous to list. As others have said, it's best to use one pharmacy and your pharmacist should be an extension of your Doc.
Hope this helps.
