 amended  by  chapter  178  of  the laws of 2010, is   amended to read as

 substances which would exceed a thirty  day  supply  if  the  controlled
 substance  were used in accordance with the directions for use specified
 on the prescription. A practitioner may, however, issue  a  prescription
 for  up  to a three month supply of a controlled substance provided that
 the controlled substance has been prescribed to treat one of the  condi-
 tions  that  have  been enumerated by the commissioner pursuant to regu-
 lations as warranting the prescribing  of  greater  than  a  thirty  day
 supply of a controlled substance and that the practitioner specifies the
 condition  on  the face of the prescription. No additional prescriptions
 for a controlled substance may be issued by a practitioner to  an  ulti-
 mate  user within thirty days of the date of any prescription previously
 issued unless and until the ultimate user has exhausted all but a  seven
 day supply of the controlled substance provided by any previously issued
 prescription.  A  practitioner may, however, issue a prescription for up
 to a six month supply of any substance  listed  in  subdivision  (h)  of
 Schedule II of section thirty-three hundred six of this article provided
 that  such  substance has been prescribed to treat one of the conditions
 that have been enumerated by the commissioner pursuant to regulations as
