New rules for hydrocodone: What you should know
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency has published today its final rule that places a more-restrictive classification on hydrocodone combination products, or HCPs. After 10 years of formal debate and consideration – and 15 years since the idea was first proposed – hydrocodone combination products are being reclassified from the more-permissive Schedule III to the more-restrictive Schedule II category. The rule will take effect 45 days from Aug. 22 – most likely Oct. 6 since it falls on a Monday.
