Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist with vast experience in diagnosing & treating all neurological as well as all other health/medical conditions, and I am very glad to help you with your health related questions or concerns.

I am sorry about your health situation that necessitates you to take Ativan and Zyprexa, and you have inquired whether – “DR's prescribe meds online?” and I will explain you in detail below on this issue.

Please see medication prescriptions cannot be issued online because it is not permitted by the law. A prescription can be issued only by your clinic-drs or by a dr that has seen you in a hospital, urgent care center, or ER (emergency room) etc

And at this web site we are not permitted to prescribe meds anyway; through this health website we provide medical opinions/advises/recommendations etc but no prescriptions, and as pointed above earlier - no website including this one is legally authorized to issue prescriptions, and if prescriptions are issued by doctors working for any website then it is strictly considered as illegal. We empathize with you, and we understand people seek treatments only when they are genuinely suffering, so we understand you are in genuine need for the above mentioned meds but unfortunately issuing prescriptions online is not permitted by law, as discussed above.

If you want to discuss your health situation further or if you have any additional questions please let me know and I am available here as long as you need my services.

Wishing you the best health!

All the very best!

Best Regards!

Dr Subbanna, MD

(Please note - if I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I, as a physician need to be honest & ethical with my clients, and sometimes this may also mean providing them some information that is not going to make them happy or feel relieved. Negative ratings are reserved for displaying rudeness with the client or providing them with the wrong information. I hope you do not see me as behaving arrogantly or rudely with you, and I also hope you see the information I have provided above is what I am supposed to provide when a patient consults me with the type of health questions you have mentioned above - Re: prescribing meds online by Drs - so I appreciate avoiding giving any negative ratings. Please be kind!, Thanks!)

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.
