Discussions that mention vicodin

Pain Management board

Thats exactly right, the class II meds, oxycodone and above, IE demerol, morphine, percocet, ect, cannot be called in or have refills on it, a new 'hard copy' of the script must be presented and be in the store you fill it, if you have a class III, norco, lortab, vicodin, and such, you can have it called in, and have refills on it. but say you go to a chain store, and you need a class II refilled, and only the 24 hour chain store is open, if that is not the same store your original script was faxed to or called in to, it cannot be filled there, you must wait until the original pharmacy you presented it to is open.

There are lots of new laws about post dating scripts, and 3 month supplies, and other things, Others here (Waving at Dave) know a lot more about that then I do.

HTH, Fabby :)

PS~This made me wonder, I just switched from Ultram and Lortabs, both class III's, to Methadone. Is methadone a class II? They carry it at the small pharmacy right in my doctors building, so it probably wouldnt cause me any extra trouble, just curious, seems to me methadone would be a class II.
And to get back to the original post about exactly which meds could be called in:

1. Lortab, Vicodin, Norco, pretty much any version of hydrocodone

2. Ultram (tramadol) or Ultracet (tramadal APAP)

3. Any anti-inflammatory medication (ie ibuprofen, celebrex, mobic)

4. Steroid medication (ie. prednisone, medrol pack)

5. any anti-depressant medication (including Cymbalta)

6. any nerve pain medicine (ie. Lyrica, Neurontin, Topomax)

I think that pretty much covers it.
