Can I get a prescription for Vyvanse or Ritalian online?

Hi Dana,

These medications are both controlled substances and so it is not legal to obtain scripts for them online.

I could help you find a physician in your area to get a script if you'd like.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
that would be very helpful! Is there a way I can speak to a doctor online?
Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 1 year ago.

Ok, great! What is your zip code?

Yes, we have physicians on this site that you can speak with. Just enter your questions and select it to go the appropriate specialty.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Would the doctors on this site be able to speak with me & prescribe me one of those medications? Or do I have to actually go see the doctor @ there office?
Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 1 year ago.

Those medications can only be obtained with a face to face visit. Regulations are very strict because they are CII substances.

The thing is I have a colicky infant & to go out is a nightmare! My current psycholoist wants me to go to another doctor who is 45 min from my home! I don't know why she can't help me!?
Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 1 year ago.

I understand...I am sure you are on edge! Psychologist cannot prescribe, but psychiatrists can. I would be able to search your area for top rated psychiatrists who take your insurance (if you have it). If you are not in a rural area, it is likely that one will be within 15-30 minutes from you.
