Yes! We are able to sell a variety of scheduled medications in accordance with Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) classifications to specific states.
What is a controlled substance?
Controlled substances are defined by the U.S. DEA as any medication that could be abused. Controlled substances have a separate licensing requirement as a safety precaution.
What states can I order controlled substances in?
Honeybee is currently dispensing controlled medications to 12 states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Massachusetts, Nevada, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.
We plan on dispensing controlled substances in all other states we serve soon, so keep checking back with us if your state isn’t listed above.
What controlled substances do you carry?
Honeybee carries a selection Schedule III, IV, or V medications. We do not dispense any Schedule I or II substances. To see if we carry your medication(s), head to the search bar at honeybeehealth.com at the top and type your medication name.
Are there any special requirements for ordering a controlled substance?
Yes. To ensure safety and DEA compliance, all orders including any controlled substances require signature upon delivery. Signature upon delivery is $5 and will be automatically included in your order total.
How long does it take for a controlled substance order to process and ship?
Prescriptions for scheduled medications require additional verification with your doctor’s office and this can take up to 2 business days. Typically we process orders within 1-2 business days so please allow an additional 2 days for verification of your controlled substance.
How can my doctor send you a prescription for a controlled substance?
The only accepted method for transmitting a new prescription for controlled substances is through electronic prescribing (Honeybee Health in Culver City, California).
Verbal authorizations, faxed prescriptions, or transfers from other pharmacies are not accepted for controlled substances at this time.
Can my controlled substance prescription be put onto automatic refills?
Yes, however unlike non-controlled substance prescriptions, controlled substances require your express approval on each order. If enrolled in automatic refills, we’ll send you an email when you come due for your next fill and you’ll need to actively confirm the order authorizing us to proceed with your order.
What happens if I don’t receive my package containing a controlled medication?
Orders containing controlled substances are not eligible for a replacement shipment, with no exceptions. We are unable to offer a money-back guarantee for lost, damaged, or stolen packages. To help ensure you receive your orders, we require signature upon delivery. Please keep this in mind when placing your order and providing your shipping address.
