    Is a prescription required to purchase ADHD medication?

Posted on Thu, 2 Jun 2016 in Mental Health
Question: I am a 51 year-old male with no health issues (i.e. no heart or disease issues).

I do think I have adult ADHD as I have a hard time concentrating for long periods of time.

Is it possible to be written a prescription for ADHD medicine online or do I have to go to a local doctor?

There is need to go to doctor

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

For prescription only option is to go to local doctor as medication will not be dispensed on the basis of online prescription.

Additionally prescribing online is not possible as it is against law and against medical ethics.

I hope this clarifies.
Thanks and regards.
