Hydrocodone-Combination Medications

X

EFFECTIVE MONDAY OCTOBER 6TH, 2014

Because of new Federal Drug Administration (FDA) regulations, Blue Ridge Bone and Joint (BRBJ) staff and physicians will no longer be allowed to phone in hydrocodone-combination medications. While not a complete list, the more familiar medications included in the new FDA changes are:

  • Hydrocodone - any combination
  • Norco
  • Vicodin

Pharmacists will no longer be permitted to contact physicians for refills for these medications. Patients will be required to present a prescription to the pharmacist for these medications.

Patients must request these prescription refills from BRBJ before 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (excludes holidays). BRBJ staff will require a signature from whoever is picking up the prescription.
