Frequently Asked Questions

Can You Get ADHD Treatment Online?

PlushCare cannot prescribe stimulants such as Adderall and Ritalin because they are classified as controlled substances and require an in-person visit before a prescription can be written. It is illegal to prescribe controlled substances online and because they are often the first line of treatment for ADHD, in-person treatment is recommended.

Can an Online Doctor Help Me With ADHD?

While the online doctor cannot prescribe you controlled substances that are often used to treat ADHD, there are some noncontrolled substances used to treat ADHD such as Strattera, its generic version atomoxetine, guanfacine and bupropion, which can all be prescribed online.
