Tramadol moves closer to Schedule 3 status
Tramadol is to be placed in Schedule 3 of the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001 when it becomes a controlled substance later this year (2014), the Government has revealed. However, it will be exempt from safe custody requirements. The Government has also decided that the current exemptions to prescriptions for temazepam, a Schedule 3 drug, are no longer warranted, but this decision will be subject to advice from the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs. The announcement comes alongside publication of responses to a consultation on the topic.
