Getting Your Medications Online

Getting Your Medications Online

Getting your e-recepta online renewed or filled can no longer be a tedious affair. Thanks to telehealth, you can do all that from the comfort of your home without having to wait long in queues at the doctor’s office or endure the traffic jams on the way there. All you need is to have a telehealth consultation with the doctor who would then write an e-prescription for your medication which can be sent to the online pharmacy you choose for pick up or delivery.

But it’s important to note that not all online pharmacies are created equal. You need to make sure you’re dealing with a legitimate online pharmacy, which is licensed and follows the strict regulations set by your state Department of Health. You also need to check if your provider is licensed in the state where you live, and that they’re using a secure video consultation platform to ensure your health information is protected.

As the coronavirus pandemic continues, many people may find it difficult to get in touch with their regular doctor to have a non-emergency issue addressed. Luckily, plenty of doctors are now offering telehealth services during the pandemic and there’s a whole crop of new apps that allow you to connect with a doctor for a virtual visit so they can prescribe you medication to treat your condition. In fact, if you have an existing prescription, you might not even need to speak to your doctor over a video call and can simply answer a few questions in an asynchronous HIPAA compliant questionnaire instead, explains Parker.
