The licensed physicians at PromptDoc can prescribe the medications you need.
These include the medicine you need for an illness like antibiotics and asthma puffers, and refills of medicine you take routinely, like blood pressure and diabetic pills.
Medication renewals are only done after an evaluation by our physicians. They are under no obligation to prescribe medicine they do not think you need, they are uncomfortable with, or they feel you should obtain from your family physician.
If you have concerns about drug dependency please consult the Severity of Dependency Scale.
If you are concerned about your chance of opioid addiction calculate an Opioid Risk Score.
We follow the requirements of the Ontario Narcotics Strategy:
- “The abuse and misuse of prescription narcotics and other controlled substance medications is a serious public health and safety issue in Ontario. A growing number of people are addicted to these drugs, using them outside their intended medical purposes, including unlawful activities and some dying as a result of this improper use.
- “To address these significant issues, Ontario has highlighted a need to educate health care professionals and the public on the proper prescribing and use of these medications.
- “Ontario’s Narcotics Strategy is promoting the proper use of prescription narcotics and other controlled substance medications while working to reduce drug abuse and addiction among Ontarians, while ensuring that people who need narcotics and other controlled substances for appropriate medical use will continue to have access to these medications.
- “A monitoring system is being developed to collect and store information on prescribing and dispensing activities for these medications. The information collected by the monitoring system will be used for improving prescribing and dispensing practices and stopping the use of prescription drugs for improper purposes.”
