Why does MeMD not prescribe narcotics, testosterone, HCG, controlled substances and certain other drugs (e.g. tramadol, soma, fioricet)?

Controlled substances have the potential for addiction and must be carefully prescribed, as should other medications such as testosterone and HCG, since use of these medications require on-going monitoring by a physician. Due to the nature of telemedicine, we cannot monitor these risks, follow-up on a continual basis, or provide an in-person assessment and thus we cannot prescribe these drugs.
