For Immediate Release August 1, 2016
In response to numerous inquiries about the proper labeling of prescriptions drugs, the Georgia State Board of Pharmacy has examined the issue in light of state law. O.C.G.A. Section 26-4-80(k) expressly provides:
Hydrocodone Combination Product (HCP) rescheduling C-III to C-II
Effective October 6, 2014
On June 1, 2010, DEA's Interim Final Rule titled "Electronic Prescriptions for Controlled Substances" became effective.
As of April 24, 2014, Georgia practitioners were authorized to begin issuing prescriptions for Opioid Antagonists (Naloxone).
Beginning on Tuesday April 29, 2014 all drug products containing Tramadol are Schedule IV Controlled Substances in Georgia. This includes all single entity and combination Tramadol products. This scheduling action took place after Governor Deal signed House Bill 835, and the law took effect immediately.
