AS you have stated, you have been to the ER.

No ER doctor is going to keep refilling a narcotic.

You can not get a prescription on line, which is illegal in Canada and the US.

I suggest you call your doctor. Your doctor can in fact call in a prescription to the pharmacy.

Another option is to have someone at home mail you your medication that you left there.

I am a double board certified clinical doctor.

Find me anytime by request for answers.
