To translate..... Beginning December 19, 2007, the US Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration allows doctors to prescribe 90 days of Schedule II controlled medicines at one time. This covers both forms of stimulants used for ADHD: the methylphenidate medicines such as Concerta, Daytrana, Focalin, Metadate, and Ritalin, and the amphetamine medicines such as Adderall, Dexedrine, and Vyvanse. During the past year's public comment period, much of the controversy over this rule change involved abusable pain medicines, while the consensus viewed better availability of stimulants to ADHD patients as a significant benefit. In addition to relief from the logistics of obtaining a new written prescription each month, this 90 day time period between office visits is more consistent with current medical care guidelines for stable patients. It also allows doctors flexibility to prescribe medicine amounts matching coverage by payment programs. --myADHD.com News
What great news! No more visiting the doctor's office each month just to pick up a prescription.
