- Arthritic Pain

Can you get a prescription through telemedicine?
After conducting a telemedicine appointment, doctors will often have enough information to advise patients on which over the counter medications to take — or to write a prescription.
A vast majority of decisions and recommendations can be made based on the patient interview and reviewing lab and diagnostic studies.
All pharmacies are regulated by state licensing boards. Because of this, there are different laws for which prescription drugs can be delivered in each state.
The most common prescriptions you are able to fill online include:
- Antibiotics such as Penicillin, Amoxicillin, or Azithromycin
- Allergy medicine, like antihistamines or nasal sprays
- Asthma medications, such as Albuterol Inhalers or albuterol nebulizing solution
Some digital and physical pharmacies can also deliver non-prescription medications like Advil, Tylenol, vitamins, and even medical supplies like thermometers.
Some pharmaceutical drugs that are classified by the Drug Enforcement Agency as controlled substances, are substances that can cause addictive tendencies or dependencies and are more heavily regulated. For example, painkillers like oxycodone and anxiety medications like benzodiazepines are controlled substances. Depending on each states’ laws for the specified drugs, will determine whether or not these types of medication can be filled online and delivered to your home.
There is a strong chance that you may also have to go through extra steps to get these controlled substances via mail. For example, your online pharmacy may require you to present photo identification for verification and sign for the delivery upon arrival.
