With Amwell, you can set up your free account and have a visit with trusted providers 24/7. During the course of your visit, your provider may recommend an online prescription. We understand that you may have questions, and you can find answers to many frequently asked questions about online prescriptions in the section below.
Before your visit begins, be sure to tell your telehealth provider about any existing prescriptions or over-the-counter medications you are taking. Some medications do not react well with others, so it’s important to be open and honest with your provider to avoid prescription complications.
With telehealth services available in all 50 states, you can have a visit and potentially receive a prescription anywhere across the country. However, please be aware that many medications cannot be prescribed online, including controlled substances.
If you are having a telephonic or phone‑only visit, stricter prescribing regulations will apply. In certain states, a video visit may be required in order to receive a prescription.
