Fighting Abuse But Hurting Pain Patients: FDA Seeks New Opioid Limits | CommonHealth
In practice, said Cindy Steinberg, a chronic pain patient and National Director for Policy and Advocacy at the US Pain Foundation, a nonprofit advocacy group, the change will impose serious hardships on the 47 million Americans who currently take hydrocodone-containing products.

With hydrodocone-containing products in their current, Schedule III classification, a pain patient can see a doctor once a year, get a prescription with five refills — meaning a supply of the drug for six months — and then call the doctor for another prescription good for another six months, which the doctor can call in to the pharmacy.

Once hydrocodone-containing products are placed in Schedule II, a pain patient would be able to get a supply of the drug for up to three, not six, months at a time. A patient will then have to have another visit with the doctor and physically take each new prescription to the pharmacy. Instead of seeing a doctor just once a year, a patient would have to go to the doctor every three months.

The change is “extremely detrimental” for pain patients, said Steinberg in a telephone interview, not just in terms of pain control but in terms of the costs of added visits to the doctor and even the ability to get those extra visits in an already-overburdened health care system.
