Hi, My sister just told me that Texas has a law that will go into effect soon that will not allow refills on any narcotic or opiate analgesic type of drug. She takes Butalbital also known as Fiorcet for migraines, and I take the same medication. My sister's doctor said he will start giving her 100 pills so she doesn't have to come to his office every month. Now she will go every three months to the doctor for a refill.
So, if one has a monthly refill then you would now have to go each and every month unless the doctor gives you more pills at once on an RX, like my sister's doctor has done.
Does anyone know if this is true? She says that the law will be that one must go to the Dr. and have a documented office visit and be given a new RX before each refill.
I am hoping this isn't the case.
If anyone knows - please let me know!
