Changes to Controlled Drugs Regulations

 In Improving Compliance, Regulations and Standards

Some changes in the regulation of Tramadol, Lisdexamfetamine, Zaleplon and Zopiclone came into force on 10th June 2014.

  • Lisdexamfetamine has become a schedule 2 controlled drug
  • Tramadol has become a schedule 3 controlled drug, but is exempt from Safe Custody Regulations
  • Zaleplon & Zopiclone will become schedule 4 (part 1) controlled drugs

Many healthcare providers have decided to treat tramadol as a schedule 2 CD by storing it in the CD cupboard and keeping stock in the CD register.
