You guys are fortunate enough not to live near a meth zone! People are always overlimit and I tell them they will have to get a doctor's prescription. Bear in mind that IL state limits are only 7500mg, lower than the federal limits, people who are following the package directions will go over limit if they want to take it every day (ie claritin-D, Zyrtec-D)

I'm OK with that. If they are taking it every single day they should just get a prescription.

"To help enforce the limited exceptions to the rules and enhance data regarding prescribing trends, prescribers will be required to include a diagnosis or procedure code on every controlled substance prescription, which will be entered into Ohio’s prescription monitoring program, OARRS. This provision goes into effect on December 29, 2017 for all opiate prescriptions and June 1, 2018 for all other controlled substance prescriptions."

that's going to be fun, both for the prescribers and the pharmacists that will have to call on every other controlled substance, "dude, you didn't put the diagnosis code in OARRS. patient can't get their Lyrica until you do."

Actually, pharmacists are not required to enforce any of these rules. These all fall 100% on the prescriber.

Interesting... so if the pharmacist dispenses a prescription even though the prescriber failed to enter the diagnosis code in OARRS, the pharmacist wont get dinged at all? That seems unusual.

I'm fairly skeptical, but yes this seems to be their stance. I will believe it when I see them actually follow through with enforcement.
