The short answer is NO.

You cannot get potentially habit forming drugs legally from an online pharmacy without a face to face consultation.

There are websites that do this by actually having you tie up with a local doctor, and then sending you the medicines as per your requirements.

Unfortunately, it is difficult to be sure of the quality of the generic medicines being sent through these websites.
