This is Dr. David

it is illegal for online doctors here to call in prescriptions for clients online without being able to examine them.

you should call up your primary care doctor who prescribed you the Coreg

a nurse or nurse practitioner or doctor at the office can call in an emergency prescription to a local pharmacy you are at in Santa Monica so you can get the prescription.

or you can see a local doctor in Santa Monica at an urgent care clinic or walk in clinic to get a 5 day prescription.

let me know if you have other questions.
