It has only happened a couple times in the course of my 20+ year pharmacy career. And now it has happened two times in less than two months. I am talking about the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) decision to reschedule tramadol as of August 18, 2014 and now hydrocodone combination products (HCP) as of October 6, 2014.
Many patients have been asking questions about this. I’m going to try and explain what happened and how it is likely to impact you.
