Why would they ?: State medical boards require an existing patient relationship, a recent exam with vital signs & a retrievable record before prescribing meds. Failure to do so can result in loss or restriction of license. Why a random doc would take this risk for you is unknown. If you have a doc, call them. If the request falls within their treatment plans they may.
