Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Optometric Practice Act of 1987. Permits a licensed optometrist to prescribe Dihydrocodeinone (Hydrocodone) with one or more active, non-narcotic ingredients only in a quantity sufficient to provide treatment for up to 72 hours, and only if such formulations are reclassified as Schedule II by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
720 ILCS 570/102from Ch. 56 1/2, par. 1102

Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the introduced bill and amends the Illinois Controlled Substances Act. Makes a change to the definition of "prescription". Provides that "prescription" means a written, facsimile, or oral order, or an electronic order that complies with applicable federal requirements, of an optometrist for a Schedule II, III, IV, or V controlled substance (rather than only a Schedule III, IV, or V controlled substance) in accordance with certain provisions of the Illinois Optometric Practice Act of 1987. Adds an immediate effective date.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
In the Illinois Optometric Practice Act of 1987, allows a licensed optometrist to prescribe Dihydrocodeinone (Hydrocodone) with one or more active, non-narcotic ingredients only in a quantity sufficient to provide treatment for up to 72 hours, and only if such formulations are reclassified as Schedule II by federal regulation (rather than by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration).
