Schedule 2 Update

On October 6th of 2014 the DEA changed hydrocodone from a Scheduled 3 controlled medication to a Scheduled 2 medication. To be able to provide these prescriptions for your patients, your DEA registration must state that you are registered to prescribe schedule 2 medications and your delegation form (renewed every 2 years) must support that delegation. 

Here is a link to a 2011 memorandum from the State of Michigan, describing the prescriptive change along with several other important laws MAPA changed that impacted PAs ability to care for our patients to the fullest extent of our training.  This is an official State of Michigan document so use this link in your practice, your institution or with your local pharmacy.  Please read the entire document.
