He can call his doctor for this.

There might be something else that is a problem.
It might even need a change of mediation, or a medication added.

You can not get a prescription over the internet.

That said, this is a starting dose, and normally the dose would be increased by 75mg at a time.

That would be 2 pills and his doctor certainly could approve this over the phone.

OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
