Prescribing Information

Prescribing Information

Prescribing Information:


  • Current limit: Seven-day initial limit (adults) and seven-day limit (minors)
  • Policy: Gov. Bill Walker (I) signed House Bill 159 into law on July 25, 2017. The legislation limits the first fill prescription of opioids to a seven day supply. Prescriptions can exceed seven days if a doctor provides a valid reason for why a longer prescription is needed. Valid reasons for an extension include logistical or travel barriers and if a patient needs more pills to manage chronic pain. The legislation also requires opioid prescription training for medical professionals.[7][8]
  • At the bill's signing ceremony, Gov. Walker made the following statement: "I introduced this legislation as a part of our multi-pronged effort to fight the opioid epidemic facing Alaska, and I’m incredibly pleased to be able to sign it today. One death resulting from opioid abuse or misuse is too many, and we must tackle this issue head-on as Alaskans. HB 159 is an example of healthcare providers, legislators, and Alaskans pulling together to build a safer state as a community. I thank Rep. Spohnholz, Sen. Micciche, Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jay Butler, and countless others for all of the work put into this legislation. It is my sincere hope that lives will be changed as a result of it."[9]
