25 Nov What Type of Meds Can a House Call Doctor Prescribe During a Visit?
If you have an illness that requires prescription medications, you can get prescriptions available from a house call doctor. A house call doctor can prescribe you the same medications that a doctor would prescribe at an in-office appointment.
Perhaps you have agoraphobia and do not wish to leave your home to go to the doctor’s office. You may be looking for a more straightforward, safer, and more convenient way to get medications prescribed to you during the Covid pandemic to mitigate your risk of contracting the virus. Either way, having prescriptions prescribed by a house call doctor can solve the issue.
This article will discuss any difference between the kinds of medications you can get prescribed from a house call doctor versus a doctor in a traditional clinic.
Are There Any Differences in What Medications a House Call Doctor Can Prescribe?
The good news is that the prescriptions a doctor can prescribe for you during an in-office appointment are the very same prescriptions available from a house call doctor. There is no difference between what medications a house call doctor is allowed to prescribe and what a doctor can prescribe during an in-office appointment. A house call doctor can prescribe everything from blood pressure medication to allergy medicine to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) medication to psychiatric medications for major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. These are just some of the prescriptions available from a house call doctor.
What Are the Benefits of House Calls?
One of the most important benefits of house call doctor’s appointments is their convenience. If you are getting a medication prescription refilled, in particular, in-clinic doctor’s appointments tend to be overly time-consuming affairs. You have to drive or take the bus to the office and then wait (usually for a long time after your appointment time has already passed) in the waiting room or alone in the empty exam room while you wait for the doctor to be ready to tend to your needs. Even then, they will be likely to only visit with you for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Let’s be honest. Sometimes the length and quality of the doctor’s appointments you make (especially those only to get prescriptions refilled) do not seem to be worth the commute to and from the office. You are having to wait in a crowded waiting room, taking the risk that you may contract an illness from someone else in the waiting room. House call appointments save you time because you do not need to commute or sit in the waiting room. As the name implies, these appointments are conducted in the privacy and comfort of your own home.
House calls also keep you safer from Covid by decreasing the number of people you need to come into contact with (such as receptionists, other patients, and nurses). The fewer people you come into contact with, the better.
