Hello. I am a Colorado resident. If I pay for a healthtap subscription can a healthtap doctor prescribe me antidepressants?
Rx. Even on Health Tap we can only prescribe medications in states where we have a license to practice medicine. However, if you see a doctor in another state and establish care, that doctor can prescribe medications to you.
Sorry, no. A lifelong illness like depression requires consistent and not virtual medical care. Antidepressants must be carefully chosen on the basis of a complete evaluation and often they need to be adjusted or changed to find the right one and the right dose for you. This is not something that HealthTap physicians would normally do. Some health departments can help with mental health coverage though.
