I understand the difficulty you are going through. I am sorry that none of your doctors are able to help you in time.

As a GP, I had discussed your condition with few neurologists here. They were of the opinion that you would require prolonged medication under the care of a doctor at your location. That is because, timely medication and refills becomes necessary. I am sorry that, it is not possible to prescribe any medication through this platform.

Hope I have been able to address your concern. If unsatisfied with the answer, please write to YYYY@YYYY .

Thank you

Wish you good health.
