Dear customer,

Thanks for your reply.

Please reply in the original question itself. Regarding your question whether doctors who answer questions online can prescribe the medications, the answer is no, they cannot. This is illegal, and without examining the patient and seeing all the investigations one cannot get a good idea of which medication will be beneficial to a patient.

Regarding your present situation, the best course of action that you can take is consult your general practitioner and tell him that you are suffering from a lot of pain and anxiety. He/she will prescribe the indicated medications and also refer you to a specialist such as psychiatrist or a pain management specialist if required.

Take care.
