My dietician is in PA and gives me prescriptions for phentermine 2 months a year to help me get some of this Lyrica weight off for summer, but I live in West Virginia. Is it legal for me to do this. I have to take UAs often and I want to be able to list that as a rx for I don't come up false positive for something else.
Is this what you are looking for? That is how I read the question right.
I reside in WV also, I might be wrong normally it's--- you have to call the pharmacy you use in PA, then have the pharmacist transfer the medcation to the pharmacy here in West Virginia. It must be the same pharmacy as it was originally used.
I hope this helps. Correct me if I'm wrong.
If your PA is writing for your Lyrica, it should also be ok for her/him to write for this prescription also. If you have a question about it you should call your pahrmacy & ask them if it is ok. I think it should be ok for you. Hope this helps, & it is always a good idea to keep all your scripts with the same pharmacy anyway so they can check for interreactions with your other scripts...

why not get the rx filled in PA? that should be legal.
