What are the quantity limits for prescribing or dispensing schedule II controlled substances in Utah?
The Utah Controlled Substances Act and Rules specify a 30-day supply as the maximum quantity that may be prescribed or dispensed for schedule II controlled substances at any one time. Federal law does not currently mandate a specific quantity limit. Prescribers and pharmacists licensed in other states should consult the Controlled Substances Act of their individual state. In general, practitioners should avoid routinely prescribing or dispensing excessive quantities of controlled substances (usually greater than a 34-day supply or 120 doses).
