Do you have a prescription medication that needs to be refilled, but you don’t want to go in to see a doctor?
With MeMD you can consult a healthcare professional online for your prescription refill. If you are currently taking a medication and have documentation, our providers can submit an e-prescription for purchase and pick-up at your local pharmacy. Conditions MeMD providers commonly prescribe medication refills for are listed below.
- Birth Control
- Cold Sores
- High Cholesterol
- Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)
- Travel Medications
Please be informed that MeMD cannot replace your primary care physician. MeMD providers cannot start a regimen of maintenance medication, and require proof of recent prescription for all refills. Providers also generally cannot increase the initial dosage of a particular medication as suggested by your primary care physician. For your safety, we limit refills to no more than 90 days within a six month period. The decision to provide a refill and the quantity is at the discretion of the provider. Be sure to share any recent information you have about your condition that can help facilitate your refill (for example recent lab tests, notes from your doctor and blood pressure readings.)
Narcotic pain relievers and controlled substances regulated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency or regulated under State law, such as Tramadol, Carisoprodol, Fiorcet, Pseudoephedrine, Armodafinil, specific anticonvulsants including Gabapentin (Neurontin), or drugs considered to be “elective” medications, such as medications to treat erectile dysfunction, hair loss and weight loss, will not be prescribed or renewed by MeMD’s medical providers.
If you are interested in a particular prescription, but are unsure if it is able to be e-prescribed, please review our prescription policy before requesting an online consultation.
