To date, the DEA has not formally clarified its position on this matter.  At the August 8, 2022 Indiana Board of Pharmacy, an audience member asked whether pharmacists could write the Indiana license number of the prescriber on a prescription without requesting a new prescription.  The Board demurred a response at that time.
