Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

no, a doctor can not prescribe medications and have it send from an EU country to another EU country.

Dr. David :

there are too many boarders and regulations to over come that way.

Dr. David :

if you are in the UK, you have to see a doctor in the UK and get a prescription there for a pharmacy in the UK for the NHS to help pay for it.

JACUSTOMER-oz8iyzv3- :

I have used an online pharmacy in the past and have had a doctor look over it

JACUSTOMER-oz8iyzv3- :

is this just a grey area or illegal?

JACUSTOMER-oz8iyzv3- :

Even in a pharmacy I have been told foreign prescriptions from the EU can be processed

JACUSTOMER-oz8iyzv3- :

as long as it is not a controlled substance

Dr. David :

this is a grey area for purchasing medications.

Dr. David :

for certain medications. which are not controlled.

Dr. David :

but you might have to pay for it with cash if it is not your home country

Dr. David :

what is your specific situation?

JACUSTOMER-oz8iyzv3- :

Xanax, Valium to the UK bought online via a consultation from an EU member state

JACUSTOMER-oz8iyzv3- :

consultation being online with a doctor I should say

Dr. David :

these typically are controlled substances.

Dr. David :

you don't want to see a doctor face to face in the UK?

JACUSTOMER-oz8iyzv3- :

No

JACUSTOMER-oz8iyzv3- :

thanks for the information

JACUSTOMER-oz8iyzv3- :

but it does not seem like a question that can be explained here, as I have tried before in the legal section

JACUSTOMER-oz8iyzv3- :

In a detailed answer I would want to see which drug schedules are allowed via online consultation

JACUSTOMER-oz8iyzv3- :

I don't think this is possible

JACUSTOMER-oz8iyzv3- :

thanks for using JustAnswer.com

Dr. David :

why did you rate poor service?

JACUSTOMER-oz8iyzv3- :

I am saying poor service simply because the question has not been answered intricately enough, I'm sorry but coming from somewhat of a pharmaceutical background it seems you are unsure of the subject in question. Thank you for taking your time with me though

Dr. David :

let me know if you have other questions.
