Drug Scheduling

The United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) classifies drugs and chemicals used to manufacture drugs into five unique categories or schedules based upon a drug’s medical use and potential for abuse or dependency.

Fagron Sterile Services US currently provides customers with a reliable supply of Schedule II, III, and IV controlled substances.

Schedule II
Schedule II drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with a high potential for abuse, with use potentially leading to severe psychological or physical dependence. These drugs are also considered dangerous.
Schedule III
Schedule III drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with a moderate to low potential for physical and psychological dependence. Schedule III drugs abuse potential is less than Schedule I and Schedule II drugs but more than Schedule IV.
Schedule IV
Schedule IV drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with a low potential for abuse and low risk of dependence.

Secure Storage

With controlled substances, security is critically important. In our 503B outsourcing facility, controlls are protected by a state-of-the-art security system with 24-hour monitoring.

Drugs are stored in a massive concrete and steel vault under detailed activity tracking by dozens of security devices throughout the facility. This helps support the safety of our employees and your patients.

Employee interactions with controlled drugs are limited to a select group who have received advanced training and undergone specific background screenings.
