CVS To Limit Opioid Prescriptions To 7 Days For New Patients

As part of CVS’s commitment to fighting the national opioid abuse epidemic, CVS is:

  •  limiting to seven days the supply of opioids dispensed for certain acute prescriptions for patients who are new to therapy;
  • limiting the daily dosage of opioids dispensed based on the strength of the opioid; and
  • requiring the use of immediate-release formulations of opioids before extended-release opioids are dispensed.
