State medical boards require a physician to have an established relationship, a retrievable patient record, recent history & physical with vital signs to prescribe any medication. Failure to comply can result in loss or restriction of their license. If you need refills on medications you need to contact the originating doc. This is a controlled drug & requires more than the usual paperwork.
