Hello

The only legal way to get this is to see a doctor in person.

Also when a doctor dies, there is usually coverage of that doctors patients, by a partner or other colleage. Check into that.

If not, the call the health department, find a walk in clinic, tell them the situation.

If you get to the point of withdrawals, the ER will have to help you.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
