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.
