Alert:
Controlled Dangerous Substances


As of March 1, 2010, physicians licensed by the State Board of Medical Examiners are permitted to issue multiple prescriptions authorizing a patient to receive a total of up to a 90-day supply of a Schedule II controlled dangerous substance under N.J.S.A. 45:9-22.19. This law applies only to licensed physicians. Prescribers other than licensed physicians are not authorized to issue multiple prescriptions at one time for a 90-day supply of Schedule II medications.

If a licensed physician assistant or advanced practice nurse believes that issuing multiple prescriptions at one time for a 90-day supply of a Schedule II medication is appropriate, the physician assistantís supervising physician or the advance practice nurseís collaborating physician must issue the prescriptions, consistent with the requirements in N.J.S.A. 45:9-22.19.
