Can an online psychiatrist send prescriptions? ​

Yes. An online psychiatrist can prescribe medications via electronic prescribing, as long as it is clinically appropriate

Can an online psychiatrist prescribe controlled substances?​

During the COVID-19 crisis, an emergency order was issued stating that psychiatrists could prescribe controlled substances online. However, the rules are different from state to state and a psychiatrist must comply with state and federal guidelines. 

The urgent psychiatrist can prescribe most medications, but certain regulations must be followed when prescribing controlled substances, such as stimulants, and certain anxiety or insomnia medications. Every state has specific requirements for prescribing controlled substances online and the urgent psychiatrist must follow state guidelines.

Typically to prescribe controlled substances:

  • The psychiatrist must perform thorough psychiatric evaluations
  • The psychiatrist must document why it is medically necessary to prescribe a controlled substance and why the benefits outweigh the risks.
  • The urgent psychiatrist must follow the same standards of care as if seeing the patient in the office.

If your state does not allow the prescription of controlled substances by an online psychiatrist a consult can be sent to your PCP. Most PCPs are comfortable prescribing controlled substances providing there is a consultation from a psychiatrist, documenting the risks versus the benefits, and clinical appropriateness.

There are occasions where your psychiatrist may not find it appropriate to prescribe a controlled substance online and may recommend that you see a psychiatrist in person, or would benefit from alternative treatments.

Is there any difference between an online psychiatry appointment and an in-person psychiatry appointment?

There is no difference as both should abide by the same standards of care.

Why would I see an online psychiatrist?

The advantage of seeing a psychiatrist online is that you can see the psychiatrist of your choice and are not restricted by location. Seeing a psychiatrist online means you do not have to travel and need not have to take time off work.​

Urgent Psychiatric Care Online

Many patients find it hard to get immediate access to a psychiatrist when most needed. Obtaining urgent psychiatric care online can help with immediate stabilizations, preventing time off work, immediate resolution of symptoms, and can sometimes prevent hospitalization. Urgent psychiatric care can include acute treatment of insomnia, panic attacks, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and OCD.
