Gabapentin and Pregabalin

Gabapentin and pregabalin have become ‘schedule 3’ controlled drugs.

Good practice requires that repeat prescriptions for this class of drug are limited to a 1 month supply. If your repeat prescription for gapapentin or pregablin is currently for more than a 1 month supply, then the quantity prescribed will be reduced.

We are able to send prescriptions for controlled drugs via the electronic prescription service to your nominated pharmacy. If you are not registered for this service, please complete our online form.
