Hi Dr Ashori here.

You can go to any urgent care in America and they can give you a prescription.

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

They can give you only a 1 month supply according to US laws.

But once you start school you can get the prescription from the school's doctor.

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

In SK did you have to go see your doctor every time they gave it to you?

Here you have to be seen every time, which is very frustrating for the patient but the pills are often sold for people to get high so it's a bit of a problem.

I had to see a doctor everytime I had gotten a refill...I should have planned this move a little better...
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

That's okay, not a problem.

Try the urgent care, I think it will work out just fine for you.

If you can take an empty bottle to them or an old prescription it should make it easier.

hey...i went to an urgent care and they was talking about that they didnt have any mental health dr's...
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

That makes no sense.

They don't need a mental health doctor to prescribe it.

You should call a different urgent care and make sure they can give it to you.

Any regular doctor can give that medicine.
