If you want to know for sure, go to the source. Here is a link for the DEA. You can look on from here. If ever in doubt, go to a place that actually has the correct information.
DEA-Diversion-drug schedule updates,etc.

Hi Shel, thanks for the link. I wasn't sure how to navigate that sight to find the info. I needed, but I did call my doc. I've been a "good patient", so hopefully he will be willing to help me out.

Lilly - Have you tried calling the NH Rite Aid yourself? I would think that the only problem you might encounter in picking up your refill there would be if they don't regularly stock Suboxone. Maybe if you called the branch where you'd be picking up and spoke to the pharmacist to give them a heads-up they could let you know if there's any strange regulations in place? That way they would also be alerted to the fact that they need to have your medication on hand by next week.

Not to start a back and forth with donh but I had a lengthy conversation today with my doc who has been a chemical dependency doctor for 15 years. He explained that while the DEA and FDA are federal agencies there are state pharmacy boards who set different standards and have different interpretations of the laws. Were I live you absolutely have to see a doctor monthly to be on suboxone, he showed me the memos from the state board. That's why I said before while suboxone is schedule III, it has it's own set of rules set by the state (in my state anyway). Again not to start a "who's right thing" but when I heard on hear of people getting refills I confronted my doc about it. I have to drive 20 miles every month when I could be getting refill, wtf. That's when he explained and showed me the state pharmacy laws and how they differ. Hope this helps anyone with questions regarding refills and dr appointments. Don't do what I did and confront your doctor over something you read on a forum.... From suboxforum.com
