Can a psychiatrist prescribe medication?


Yes. Our psychiatrists can prescribe medication at their discretion. However, there are certain limitations as to which medications our psychiatrists can prescribe. Any medication that has a DEA Schedule I-V or requires an in-person visit with a local psychiatrist. If the medication you need is one that our providers are unable to prescribe, we recommend consulting with your primary doctor, or a local health facility.
