New Requirement For Doctors Takes Effect

Starting Tuesday, doctors will be required to check an online database that tracks when prescriptions for addictive medications are filled.

It's part of the state's "I-STOP" law, which aims to control prescription drug abuse.

Lawmakers say the law reduces the chances of drug abusers going to different doctors to get multiple prescriptions. Pharmacists will also be able to check the database before filling a prescription.
