Gabapentin and Pregabalin Prescriptions
Posted on 27 Mar 2019
To all patients on Gabapentin and Pregabalin prescriptions.
From April 2019, both of the above drugs will have been reclassified as Controlled Drugs, meaning that your Doctor can only supply you with a month's worth on prescription at a time.
The law change will mean the drugs are still available for legitimate use on prescription, but there will be stronger controls in place to ensure accountability and minimise the chances of pregabalin and gabapentin falling into the wrong hands or being stockpiled by patients.
