... the Feds as a Class-Whatever drug, he can only prescribe 1 month's supply at a time with a mandatory office visit. Bless him, he "prescribed" twice my daily dosage, but I still have to have an office call every 2 months. I am on SocSec Disabilty and Medicare, but even after Part B my cost per visit (just for Tramadol prescript!) is about $45! Ouch. I read conflicting info online, is my Doc misinformed? If so, I will have to prove it to him. Advice?
The only opioid that I know of that was recently reclassified is hydrocodone NOT Tramadol! Tramadol was not reclassified. Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Norco) was reclassified from a Schedule III to a Schedule II and it does now require a written script for each time it is filled-it can no longer be called in or allowed refills. Tramadol, however, has not changed UNLESS it is something specific to your particular state. The person to ask would be your pharmacist. They should be able to tell you if your state has reclassified Tramadol.
