Frequently Asked Questions | Written Medication Orders Policy

Can I get a written medication order?

Yes, you may receive a written medication order. However, Telemed Mexico does not guarantee medical orders will be written. Our doctors are qualified and experienced. Therefore, our policy is for the doctor to recommend the best treatment available. We rely on their discretion regarding the medical necessity of any treatment plan. Telemed Mexico doctors do not write medication orders for substances controlled by any federal or state agency or other drugs that may be harmful because of their potential for abuse.

How are written medication orders sent to the patient?

Telemed Mexico does not write medication orders for controlled substances.  If the doctor writes an order for medication, it is submitted electronically to the patient. You may use the pharmacy of your choice to purchase the medication order.

Can Telemed Mexico Doctors write medication orders for antibiotics?

Yes, but it’s vital that antibiotics are prescribed responsibly and judiciously (i.e. only when medically necessary). Our doctors are conscious of the adverse impacts that can arise from over prescribing antibiotics. Therefore, our physicians only recommend antibiotics when they’re medically necessary.

Not every ailment requires antibiotics. They aren’t effective against viral infections such as colds, flu, many types of sore throats, bronchitis, and some sinus and ear issues. In cases like these, our doctors might suggest a regimen focused on alleviating the symptoms of viral infections.

For a deeper understanding of antibiotics, visit the Center for Disease Control’s official website.

Can you write medication orders for Controlled Substances?

Telemed Mexico doctors do not write orders for medications that are classified as controlled substances and regulated by federal or state agencies, or those that could be potentially abused.

All medication orders written and provided by a Telemed Mexico physician comply with all Mexican federal and state regulations, as well as the written medication orders policy of Telemed Mexico.
