You guys stand me corrected again!! Regarding the call-in versus the written script. I always thought it was simply because of the nature of the class of drug. Meaning, I thought shedule II's were either more powerful or, commonly sought after. Thus, the reason for the written script is the CYA factor. Anyone could fake a doc's voice on a phone and call in a script verbrally relaying the docs DEA number.. Whereas on the more controlled ones, there would be written documentation covering everyone
. This protects the pharmacy, the doc, and you. There can be no questions short of forgery which is more traceable.
If i am correct about the likelihood of abuse being a factor in the shedule two class, past (and even current) demand in society is tiny in comparison on black market to narcotics, per say. If strength or danger has anything to do with the classification, I think the FDA states testosterone
is diffiult to impossible to fataly overdose on. Although, i would not want to be on the receiving end of a 5 gram pin!!!
When you consider that you can overdose and die from too much nyquil, I think the second of my theories is probably incorrect.
Thanks for the correction. Nobody's perfect
