Gabapentin & Pregabalin prescription changes Posted on 24 Apr 2019

Gabapentin and Pregabalin have been reclassified as Controlled Drugs (CD) under the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001, and Class C of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.

This will not affect your medication; but does control the way GPs prescribes it. 

All CD drugs are prescribed for a maximum of 28 days; and issued on paper prescription; you can ask your nominated pharmacy to collect these.

Affected patients will be contacted personally.
