Gabapentin and pregabalin consultation on proposals to schedule under Misuse of Drugs Regulations

14th November 2017

The government have opened a consultation on proposals to schedule gabapentin and pregabalin under the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001. The preferred option, as recommended by the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) is that these drugs should be controlled as Class C drugs (under the Misuse of drugs Act 1971) and placed in Schedule 3 (to the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001). Comments are welcome from all interested parties by 22 January 2018.
