On May 7, 2014, the Board of Pharmacy has promulgated new regulations regarding the filling of certain Hydrocodone extended-release prescriptions (currently only Zohydro). The complete list of regulations are accessible by clicking here if you are a Pharmacy Technician or Intern (247 CMR 8.05(3)), and clicking here here if you are a Pharmacist, Pharmacy, or Pharmacy Department (247 CMR 9.04(8)).

The major change for technicians is not being able to handle these products (any level of technician). The big change for pharmacists is the requirement of a Letter of Medical Necessity for each Zohydro prescription. These changed are EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY! The approved changes can be found on the Board of Pharmacy website (click here).
