2 prescriptions on on script

a doctor wrote me a medrol dose pack prescription and wrote a script of klonopin for my anxiety on the same script is that legal?
rohvannyn responded:
Yes, it's legal. Klonopin is a controlled substance, but only a schedule IV, the next to least controlled category. The medrol isn't a controlled substance. Depending on the laws of your state, doctors will often write two presciptions on the same pad. It's called a "polyscript." I've seen prescriptions with eight or ten medications on them! As long as the right information is there, and the doctor is current on all his or her certifications, it's legal and fairly normal.
