It depends what state you live in. CA has some of the toughest laws. A triplicate prescription can only be processed with the actual hard copy/original rx. They wont process through the system until we have the triplicate with the DA control # on it, that has to be log in the system before the prescription can be filled. All other prescriptions can be faxed or called in.
