    Is online prescription available for chronic pain?

Posted on Wed, 25 May 2016 in Back Pain
Question: Is there a way to find a Dr online that will prescribe medication to be filled at online pharmacies? I can't find a family Dr, and I need a referral to a Pain management Dr. I have a chronic pain issue, Degenerate disc disease, spinal stenosis, epidural fibrosis, failed back surgery Syndrome, I had a laminectomy/discectomy for Cuada Equina Syndrome. I still have 2 herniated discs in my lower back, in the L5 S1 region. I just moved across Canada, from Saskatchewan to XXXXXXX finding a Dr is very hard. I'm going to run out of my prescription medications and am very worried, they are narcotics, and abrupt cessation is dangerous and very scary... I just don't know what to do. walk in clinics in XXXXXXX will NOT prescribe narcotics under any circumstance, same with the ER.

Brief Answer:
We can not write prescription without examining you.

Detailed Answer:
I have gone through your query.
It is not possible to get valid prescription for prescription based agents from here. We can not write you prescription without actually examining you.
You need to see local doctor for help, if on examination he feels that you need this agent he may prescribe. Other way is if you have valid previous prescription, based on that you may get this agents at drug store.

Itnis better to find out the local clinic or local doctor near your place and get valid prescription.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
