In brief: Yes
He or she can do this for you once an evaluation of the need for adhd medication is made.
A typical scenario is the following: scripts are provided monthly from the pcp office on a special script called a "triplicate" or controlled substance script. Also, an in-person visit every 3-4 months is needed to monitor effectiveness of the medication, blood pressure, heart rate, and any side effects.
