c-2 script

How long is a C-2 script good for in Arizona?


I do not know the specific Arizona state law regarding C-2s. While I have quoted from Federal law below, Arizona state law may be different/more strict.

The DEA is not specific about when C-2 prescriptions expire, however no prescription can be refilled more than 1 year after the date it was written.

According to the DEA, "No prescription may be filled or refilled in excess of one (1) year from the date the original prescription was written. No prescription for a controlled substance listed in Schedule II may be refilled. No prescription for a controlled substance listed in Schedules III, IV, or V may be filled or refilled more than five (5) times within a period of six (6) months after the date on which the prescription was written."
