Hello from JustAnswer.
This cannot be done.
It is a violation of federal law for a doctor to prescribe pain medicine, or any controlled substance, without having first performed a personal face-to-face evaluation. So, the pain medicines cannot be prescribed based on an internet or phone interaction. Once an initial personal face-to-face evaluation has been done, some refills can be done via these alternative methods of communication, but only by the doctor that did the initial personal face-to-face evaluation.
The only legal method for obtaining a prescription for pain medicines is to personally see a physician.
If I can provide any clarification, please let me know.
