Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of medication can be prescribed on Amwell?

Controlled substances cannot be prescribed via telehealth on Amwell.  If you require a controlled substance (i.e., benzodiazepines), the Amwell psychiatrist may be able to coordinate with your primary care physician to have him or her prescribe those medications based on the psychiatrist’s recommendations. Otherwise, all other psychiatric medications can be prescribed by your online psychiatrist.
