Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love and my goal is to provide you with excellent service.

I am sorry that no expert has yet responded, but it is likely because it is difficult to fully answer your question.

You are correct that there are many restrictions upon controlled substances, and one of them is that it is illegal to prescribe these drugs over the internet.

As for your need to know if you will be able to receive your former medicines, that is impossible to answer, as each doctor must make their own decision whether to prescribe these medicines. What can be said is that you would be more likely to be able to obtain prescriptions for these medicines if you stop going to ERs. I understand what you are saying about the lack of insurance and the time it takes to get disability, but if you continue to go to ERs, you may permanently affect the likelihood that you can get these prescriptions.

I realize that this is not the solution that you were seeking to your dilemma, but there is no good solution until you are able to establish with a local doctor.
