You would have to talk to "your" doctor to see if he would call one in. Other wise for a doctor to call something in for you that has not seen you is not ethical and can be illegal in some states as well.

You can call your doctor who prescribed the medication and let him know you are out, and perhaps he will renew the prescription or at least call in enough to get you through the weekend until you can get in to see him next week. Doctors have an answering service, so call them and leave a message and he will call you back.
