No: A doctor needs to see you to examine you in person before any medication can be prescribed. Hope this answer helps.

No: Typically you need a face to face evaluation and determination regarding your issues. Controlled substances can only be hand signed at this time. Non-controlled substances/medications can be called into your pharmacy, but I recommend seeing a doctor to determine what is best for you.
