TMA DECIPHERING HYDROCODONE CHANGE CHALLENGES


The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s decision to reclassify drugs that contain hydrocodone combinations from Schedule III to Schedule II continues to elicit questions and a good bit of anger from Texas physicians. TMA is working to get some solid answers from the maze of state and federal agencies with jurisdiction, and we’ll update our online Q&A document as we get them. I’ve also asked our lobby team to see what legislative remedies are available.
