Frequently Asked Questions for Pharmacists on Foreign Prescribers

Q: Can I fill a prescription written by a foreign physician?

A: Yes, so long as you believe there is a physician/patient relationship and the prescription is not for a controlled substance. Foreign prescribers are almost certainly not registered with DEA, which is a requirement for writing a prescription for a controlled substance.
