You can only get a prescription by seeing a doctor.

What is your question exactly?

How do I get a perscription with out going to a doctor?
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 11 months ago

There is no way to do that.

It would be a felony in the US.

In addition, only a suboxone certified doctor can prescribe for you.

There are reduced fee clinics for suboxone , where you can see suboxone doctors.

Have you called your local health department?

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
