    Default DEA doing the lords™ work

    DEA is proposing new rules updating the Ryan Haight Act, which will make life harder for TRT patients. The proposal is directed at schedule III, IV, and V non narcotic medications prescribed through telemedicine. Testosterone is considered a Schedule III medication.

    it would require in person evaluations and prescriptions of no more than 30 day supply. All this will do is increase costs in both $$ and time, and could potentially leave lots of ppl without access to TRT.

    comment on the ruling here to try and stop this nonsense.

    Sad state of affairs when the UK has better access to TRT and steroids than the US.

    Rip, didn't you call this in a podcast once? Something like "if I were a cynical man, I would think this were a deliberate war on masculinity. If they restrict TRT, that would be direct evidence of it."

    I did. They'll eventually get it done.

    One of the DEA red flags for over-prescribing is the distance the patient has traveled to see the doctor. A lot of licenses and patients are going to be lost.

    If I were clever, I'd be writing my congresscritter or the Feds a letter/comment expressing concern for how this regulation is going to harm the marginalized on hormone therapy, for example, trans-gendered persons. I'd be telling them how in reactionary transphobic conservative Southern states, it's impossible for a trans person to do an in-person evaluation without endangering their life, and how telemedicine is life-saving. Indeed, it's not wrong to say that this regulation, were it to pass, will literally kill untold numbers of transgender folx. That's how I'd approach it.
