Prescribe Gabapentin

Medications classified as controlled substances on the federal or state level will not display through the “Search Medications” field when ePrescribing.  Due to the state law variations, certain medications (such as Gabapentin) may not display in OneView.  Gabapentin is currently controlled in AL, KY, MI, ND, TN, VA, and WV.

Gabapentin is not classified as a controlled substance in CA, NV, MN, IA, FL, DE, and NY.  Therefore, providers in these states can prescribe Gabapentin using the “Search Medications Controlled in Some States” dropdown field in the “Search Medication” pop-up when ePrescribing.  The dropdown field will display for patients actively dialyzing in these states and only show Gabapentin.  After the appropriate Gabapentin medication is chosen from the dropdown list, follow the existing ePrescribing process.  

Hover over the information icon for more details about the field.
