Thread: self perscribing?
02-22-2005, 12:04 PM #1
Hey guys I have a question....
If someone is going to school to be a PA (physicans assistant). I was curious if anyone new of the legal aspect of self perscribing. I mean, after someone finishes school and is able to right scripts, Is there anything stopping them from just getting their own gear right there at the pharmacy? Or would that someone be better off still purchasing it on the black market?
just wondering if anyone has any insight on this....

well I know that PAs are now able to right scripts.. as well as some Nurse practisioners..(Spelling?)
But do you think that writing a script to yourself is illegal? I mean I would assume it is, but I am just wondering if anyone knows for sure.. Im curious cause I constantly hear people talking about...
well my friends a doc... or my friend is a pharmacist..
So I was just wondering how easy it is for someone in the capable position to perscribe to people or friends.

I'm not too sure about that one. Where are you going to school? I'm practicing to be a sports medicine physician.

It is illegal to write your own script and you will loose your license and depending on the state you could go to jail.

If a pharmacy see's that you are writing a script to yourself and they do pick up on it most likely they will turn you in, you would be much safer writing script for some one else, but to me still seems a little dangerous but better than writing to your self.

P.A.'s cant write scripts unless under the protocal of a docter and if it is considered a narcotic or not and, i am not sure but i think roids are considered class III drugs, and then the feds would get involved so probably not worth it.

in the medical field lots of rules are bent and overlooked in the legal field they wont overlook it, the rules may be different in certain states i am not sure about that and even if he can write scripts i still wouldnt recomend writing him to himself its not worth your license.
